Hi Experts,

I have a webserver behind my fortigate 200b and I want to make port translation to the web.
I have done exact this manual
http://docs-legacy.fortinet.com/cb/html/index.html#page/FOS_Cookbook/Firewall/cb-firewall-dnat1.html

But it is not working, but on the sniffer I can see the packets.
Why I cannot see the webpage from outside ?

What is the sniffer result? Any "ack" reply on it?

Also, you can enable the logging of that policy, and trace the result from the logging

Hi,

I assume gateway on web server is not FortiGate, because of this you can't access the page from internet. Can you enable nat on that VIP policy and verify?

Good Luck!

The sniffer comes out with ACK and SYN.
This should be fine right ?

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

on the policy I can see send packets -> over 130 packets sent.
This is the incoming policy -> WAN-LAN

Alright, seems everything looks good. Better to check the event log to make sure the access is allowed. Did you try to access the webpage internally? Any other host based firewall on that web server?

Yes the config was correct.
The website was working internally.

The problem was something with the external IP address.

SOLVED.

Thanks
