Server only responds to ping is DMZ is enabled for server.
I have multiple public ip addresses.
My DSL modem blocks ping from a server behind the modem (nb6+4w) modem lan ip (gateway) is xxx.xxx.xxx.105
the server is xxx.xxx.xxx.107
If I DMZ this server it responds to pings.
If i don't want to use DMZ, what service is ping using.
I have set up virtual server 443 to this 107 ip as it's a SSL server
usually blocked for good reason.
This is a port forwarding issue, either for icmp (for pinging) or the 443 port for the https service. What's the question?
I have 443 port forwarded for the SSL server , that works
I need to do something to get ping forwarded to the server behind the dsl modem as i hope to use ping as a method of load sharing between one www server and the two servers that are behind this modem.
The server that responds to ping fastest , gets the job
May be someone could suggest a better way of load sharing.
The load sharing is more for redundancy..
I want to be able to pull a server out of service and the parent server, (having not gotton a response), simply send the job to the other server.
Thanks again for your replies
Probably better to have a rethink and separate the services you're running into those that you want available internally and those that should only be on the internet. I would be wary about opening up icmp to the lan in the way you are talking about.
I was thinking to run a php ping script on the lan that pings the two servers and returns resp
I'm also blocking port:80 as I'm not using it now
