Hello all, just bought myself a new toy, the alcatel speedtouch pro adsl modem/hub/router. I also have an ftp (proftpd) and latest stable apache server running on my rh9 machine. I have enabled port fowarding on my modem, and told it to route <i>all</i> requests to port 80 from <i>all</i> sources to 192.168.0.2:80, the ip of the linux server. I have done likewise with port 21.
To verify that it is all working, here is the output of the blatantly edited, 'lists', produced from the router. NB:there is much more, but this is all that is relevant)
Indx Prot Inside-address:Port Outside-address:Port Foreign-address:Port Flgs Expir State Control
1 6 192.168.0.2:21 my.current.ip.add:21 0.0.0.0:0 instance
5 6 192.168.0.2:80 my.current.ip.add:80 0.0.0.0:0 instance
23 6 192.168.0.2:80 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:0 template
24 6 192.168.0.2:21 0.0.0.0:21 0.0.0.0:0 template
I have also registered myself a hostname with dyndns.org and have assured that the name points the current IP of the router. (double checked from whatismyip.com).
Onto my problem:
No-body can get to my linux server! not one. Only recently discovering that testing from within my lan doesnt work anyway, i rang a few mates and got them to test it, to my loss. All of them get a bit of lag , then "page not displayed". None of them can ping my ip directly either. This leads me to conclude that the router (i assume) is doing what i tell it to, that the packet gets fowarded and dies when it hits the linux machine, and that the problem must reside within the linux box somehow. I was suggested my another member of linuxquestions to stop iptables and try again, and unfortunately, it still seems unavailable! All of my services work perfectly fine from inside the LAN. I have done some searching to try and find out if a bug in the router is causing it, but have been unlucky in finding such complaints. If anyone out there has succesfully had a server running from behind an Alcatel SpeedTouchPro, please give me a hand!
Any help would be fantastic! Thanks for looking and taking the time..
