I need to be able to connect to a Ubuntu 12.04 server in my home office when I am away from my office from time to time. I am having difficulty setting things up to achieve this end point.
This is what I can do:
I can login to Server (960) over the LAN and run my web application fine from several devices in the office.
I can login as 'root' into server as necessary.
I can ping the server (960) successfully from another device on the LAN.
Port forwarding on the router is set up:
Mapping External External Internal Internal
Name Interface Protocol Start Port End Port Port Host
RDP TNZ_FIBRE TCP 3389 3389 3389 192.168.1.76
VTIGER TNZ_FIBRE TCP 8888 8888 8888 192.168.1.76
VTon960 TNZ_FIBRE TCP 8080 8080 80 192.168.1.64
I can login with RDP into a Windows desktop on 192.168.1.76 (Startpoint 3389, Endpoint 3389, Internal port 3389, LAN IP address of target desktop).
I can achieve HTTP access to a Windows webserver on 192.168.1.76 (Startpoint 8888, Endpoint 8888, Internal port 8888, LAN IP address of target Windows webserver).
canyouseeme.org shows 3389 and 8888 as open to be used.
On the Linux server (960) I ran wget http://localhost:80
and got the following confirmation that port 80 is listening:
Resolving localhost (localhost)... 127.0.0.1
Connecting to localhost (localhost)|127.0.0.1|:80.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK
Length: 177 [text/html]
Saving to: ‘index.html’
What settings do I need for the Startpoint, Endpoint and Port for VTon960?
What do I have to do on 960 to get it to listen/hear requests coming in?
My ISP has blocked port 80 obviously.
All assistance is much appreciated.
