help with routing


hi,

i just set up a apache webserver ... i can access my website using http://localhost/~username just fine.

i have a bell sympatico high speed and seimens speedstream 6520 router.

When i try to acess my website from a browser (using my domain name - registered with dyndns.org) it brings me to my router config page not my website !! and if someone else tries to access it they get the message "the page cannot be displayed......"

i have tried port forwarding , DMZ but still it does not work .

i was wondering that is there any way that i can set up my router in suse so that the speedstream just acts like a modem whereas all the routing (forwarding etc...) is handled by suse ? i am using suse 9.3

any help would be very appreciated .....

thank you

Port forwarding is definitely what you need to do; do
you have to restart the router after such a change by
any chance? And what does the forwarding rule look
like, are you forwarding both 80 and 443?


Cheers,
Tink

Hi Tink,

i tried forwarding port 80 to my machine (with the static private ip of 192.168.2.80) .

nop i dont have to restart the router ... just press the apply buton . but i tried restarting the router , just in case .. but it did not help.


the rule looks like this in the config page of my router :

HTTP TCP HTTP / 80 192.168. 2. 80

also why do i need to forward port 443??

thanks

As for the not getting anywhere: is the machine itself firewalled,
and blocking incoming connections? Can you see any indication
of connection attempts in the system or apache logs?

443 would be SSL for https connections.

Hi Tink,

I double checked and my machine is not firewalled ... i also checked the apache logs ... no entry.

i guess that means that my bell modem/router is not port forwarding .... which brings us back to square one .....

thanks

help with router bridging

Hi ,

I set up apache on suse and after many unsuccesfull attemps to openthe ports with the crappy Seimen speedstream 6520 router i decided to buy a new router (d-link di-524).

my plan was to use speedstream as just a modem and use dlink to handle the PPPoe and routing functions and then allow http access .

i put the speedstream in briged mode and then connected my dlink router and entered my usename and passoword for internet . it wont connect at all ... when i checked the logs it showed that it is trying to connect but is not able to ....

so just to be on the safe side i removed all my login information from the speedstream router and then connected the dlink router but still no connectivity ....

i also read in some other thread that if my dlink router is handling the PPPoe connection then the "internet" light on the speedstream router wont light up .... but in my case it always does

as being a novice in networking im not that familiar with the actuall meaning of terms like bridging .....

so ill appreciate any help that i can get .... it's getting quite frustating now ... and one more thing .... bell tech support sucks !!

I am also really a newbie - after a coupleof years. Some people learn faster than others.

I suspect the modem should be half bridged, and the DLink router may need to be configured to use the modem as a PPOE device. TheDLink should then be set up as the DHCP server

Could you provide more information on how you have set this up at present?

Hi jburford,

as i said im still learning about networking ... whats a half bridge mode ?

i dont mind lettting my speedstream handle the PPPoe connection ...my only concern is that when someone tries to access my server the speedstream should let the request pass straight through it to the router ... that is i want my dlink router to be responsible for deciding which requests to allow and which ones to block ....

thanks
ankit

I've merged your original thread with one of your dupes. And as
kewp pointed out, please don't double-post or start a new thread
just because the original didn't get the answers.



Cheers,
Tink
