Unhappy Behind Router/Firewall ?website impossible ?


Everybody, please Help me. quick.......

I have an APPACHE server and installed website contents for my company.
but, i can't reach to my website by entering the domain.only works for lan ips,
like : 192.168.1.32

When i try to enter my website,it simplely show up an account/pass menu that is
my router/firewall setup interface screen when type in 192.168.1.1 in browser.

because the web server is located in LAN NOT WAN.SO it is behind router/firewall.

how should i to do to fix this problem.???????
I want to let outsider easily just enter my website address and direct connect to my web server.(by pass router ?)

Need some more info... Does your company have just one IP assigned - that is, the IP of your router?

Have you configured the router to pass/redirect traffic that come to port 80 to be redirected to your webserver at 192.168.0.2?

How are you connected to your ISP? via a cable modem/ADSL/leased line

Do any systems inside your network or around its periphery have a Public IP?

Replace the router. My personal preference is an older PC running smoothwall as they make a good router box and they are easy to set up. But any router will do as long as you can set up port forwarding - ie forward port 80 to the machine with apache on it...

So, unless you move to a more current router product or replace it with a linux box, you won't be in a position to expose your webserver to the internet.

Another option is - use hosting services.

OK !!!

I have decided to build a linux box to act as a router...

and what linux router should be.???

my old 486 pentium pc without cdrom,hard drive.only floppy disk and 2 10/100 ethernet cards.

my adsl stastic 1 ip's isp has given 640k upload/8m download.
is there any linux router box can support this range ?

Please confirm whether your old PC is a 486 or a Pentium Class.

Current RedHat/Fedora releases do not support 486s. You can install Slackware or Debian.
Select the minimum of packages to install, without any graphic/X support.

Well, smoothwall is a good one, but it needs a hard drive (or equiv) to work, and a CD briefly for the install. Probably better on a pentium, tho some people have smoothwall running on 386's. Mine is on a P166MMX.

There are router on floppy distros as well (LRP maybe???) but they wouldn't configure quite as easy as something like smoothwall - but would work.

True, Smoothwall can speed up the implementation process.
