Inbound traffic for port 80
Hey everyone!! :cool:

I have cable connection and my ISP may block port 80 so I
use port forwarding which I have set for port 8080. I would like to know if my Apache are running on port 8080.? :scratch: and
I using Cisco Soho 77 router and I would like to know how can I configure my router to route all inbound traffic for port 80 and 8080 from my router to my computer. :confused:

i can't help you with your cisco router stuff, however to find out what services are listening on which port you can do a netstat -l

which IOS is running on your router?
It sounds like you need to do network address translation (NAT) with the router.

If your ISP blocks port 80, you'll never get requests reach your router to be forwarded to 8080.

Hey sorry but I newbie!!

What did you mean with IOS?


rhstudent 05-29-2003 03:59 PM

Cisco calls their router operating system the Internetwork Operating System (IOS)
current versions which support NAT are 11.3 (I think) to what ever is the newest version.
I have a Cisco 2611 running IOS 12.3 at home.

I am using NAT to redirect incomming web traffic to my web server.

If your ISP is blocking incomming web traffic(port 80) your not going to be able to redirect anything because it's never going to get to your router. Are you sure they are blocking incomming traffic on port 80?

I tried to type in URL to bring up the web page of router but nothing happened, when the technical Support of ISP came to install the router they programmed in Windows Terminal!! Do I need to pragram in Windows Terminal?

if your ISP is blocking port 80 then you will have to look for a service which forwards all your port 80 requests to whatever port you want your web server to run on. you can't do it on your computer, because the traffic wont reach you if your iSP is blocking it. there are lot of port forwarding service available, do a google search and you will find some free ones too.

Hi again one question?

I have the DNS service with in the "Dynu Dynamic Basic" I have the option of Port Forwarding, the question is, do I need to look for a service which forwards all my port 80 requests to whatever port I want web server to run on or is just the Dynu Dynamic Basic DNS?



manthram 05-29-2003 04:27 PM

you can use your dynamic dns service providers port forwarding. it will not ask for which port to forward. when you enable this service, it means that when ever you type your domain name it defaults to that port. so all you have to do is enable port forwarding and then tell your web server to listen on that port
