Apologies for the late reply, yes i am using an alcatel speed touch pro, and have configured the routing as such.
Indx Prot Inside-addr
ort Foreign addr
97 6 10.0.0.2:21 0.0.0.0:21 0.0.0.0:0 template
98 6 10.0.0.2:80 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:0 template
Yeah, i read up on my port fowarding, and this seems correct, i havent configured apache in any way yet, infact, when i start it up i get "could not get servers qualified domain name, using 127.0.0.1 for ServerName". When i scan my router i get this:\
Starting nmap V. 3.00 ( www.insecure.org/nmap/
Interesting ports on SpeedTouch.lan (x.x.x.x):
(The 1597 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: closed)
Port State Service
21/tcp filtered ftp
23/tcp open telnet
80/tcp filtered http
1723/tcp open pptp
Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 9 seconds.
This has let me to confirm that my router is doing what i tell it to do, and that the problem may be with my linux config.
