sagem f@st3436 portforwarding problem.

Fri Jun 01, 2012 4:43 am

Hi there,

I got a problem with the portforwarding on my sagem f@st3436
Normally I would think this is quite simple!
But for some kind of reason when I go to http://<externalip>
I end up on the login screen of the router.

I forwarded TCP/UDP on port 80 of the external IP to the port 80 of the internal NAS where I have a webpage.

any ideas? because I'm out of them. I don't get it. even less because this should be a simple thing to do...

thnx T

Your router is already listening on port 80, so it can't forward a port it uses. Either forward a different port to your NAS, or set your router's listening port to something else

Just to be sure...:)

I need to grant external http access to a website on my NAS with internal ip
Can use a random port for http access to the website?
so for example http://externalip:9987 to 192.168.1.3:9987 or should the port on the internal be port 80?

thnx

Internal should be 80 if that's what your NAS is listening on. Which would be the default unless you changed it

ok thnx, it becomes clear :)

Now I need to figure out how I will give access to people to the website. using the external ip address.
I know I need something to do with DDNS because the change of external IPaddress...
Guess I have some reading to do :)
but I'm still asking myself. Is it safe to do it like that? or should I take precautions? :)

grtz.
