PostPosted: Sat Aug 26, 2006 7:03 pm    Post subject: VT2442 Static IP and Port Forwarding Reply with quote Back to top

E-mails to Motorola and Vonage have both been unsuccessful.

I switched from a D-Link router to the VT2442 as my main router plugged into my cable modem, because I was having trouble with call quality having the VT as the second router in the chain. Moving it to the first router, immediately after the cable modem has increased call quality.

However, I have a web server that I would like to have outside Port 80 (and a couple other ports) forwarded to. So, I wanted to give the server a Static IP and forward those ports to it.

When I log into the configuration utility I go to Advanced|LAN Clients and try to set the MAC Address and IP address. When I click Save, the configuration page locks up, and I can't log back into the VT's configuration tool until I reset it. (Internet and phone work though, just the configuration hangs.)

So, I tried forwarding to the dynamic IP address. These settings seem to save, but if I type in my IP address, (http://68.80.xxx.xxx) I get the log in to the VT's configuration. (If I do the locally assigned IP I get my web server. http://192.168.15.5)

Any ideas?

UPDATE: I have figured out Static IP. On my D-Link, if you set a MAC up with a static IP, you could leave the computer with DHCP, and always get the IP you set. With the VT 2442, you cannot use an IP that is in use at that moment, or it hangs. When you set an IP to be static, you must set the PC as static, or the VT 2442 will still give it a dynamic address, other than what you wanted.

I am still not able to port Forward though.

Ok, I had my brother try getting to my web server and he can, so that's good. That simply means that if I'm connected to the Motorola box, and try my IP, I get the Motorola box, but anybody else get's my web site. Frustrating but workable.

Oh wow.... your case sounds pretty similar to mine, except I'm using a 2142... gonna have to try hitting my machine's webserver from work. Did it end up working properly in the end?

When you get the router to allow folks outside your network to type in http://111.222.333.444 (or whatever your ip address is) you can then go into your hosts file, and add lines like this:
192.168.15.1 111.222.333.444
192.168.15.1 www.yourDomain.net

On Win XP the hosts file is in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

I believe that the router takes any calls using port 80 from inside the network and handles it by sending the admin page. And thus the routing of port 80 ONLY works outside. So, you have to tell your PC that instead of going out to the internet to ask where the pages are for IP whatever, (which goes back to the router who is using the IP address) to just go to the internal IP when you ask for your site.

Clear as mud?

Does that work? I would think the router would still know you're inside the LAN, regardless of whether you're hitting the LAN or external IP.

One thing I was thinking of, was setting up my machine to use proxy servers, so the request really /would/ come from the outside, but that would mean I'm then depending on a third party, which is not preferable. The optimal solution in my head would be to figure out a way to get the router to recognize my machine's MAC address specially, and send me through the same way an external request would come in. There's a billion inclusion/exclusion configuration options in the router... I'm hoping one of them will do it... Smile

Edit: Forgot to say, indeed your case was similar to mine.. port forwarding was actually working, just, like you, I couldn't tell from inside the LAN.

If you type in your browser http://192.168.15.x (the internal IP address of your web site) you should see your site.
If you do your hosts file likewise:
192.168.15.x www.yourDomain.net
192.168.15.x xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (your external/internet IP)

I used 192.168.15.1 before, but that was not correct. That would still go to the router.

shouldn't you be able to type in your ip addy 71.210.77.x:80 so it goes to the port number specified. in this case it would be port 80 which is the normal HTTP port or to whichever port you had specified for you HTTP server.

jdschultz,

Yes, you might expect that (I know I did), but unfortunately it doesn't seem to work that way. The router knows I'm coming from inside the LAN, and as a result handles my request differently than if I had typed in the same URL on a machine outside the LAN. There's probably a good reason for it to work this way, I just don't know what it is.... Embarassed
