PostPosted: Thu Feb 01, 2007 10:50 am    Post subject: VT2442 Can not browse hosted web sites from inside network Reply with quote Back to top

I just installed a VT2442 in my network. It is plugged directly into my cable modem with the remainder of my networking equipment behind it.

I have configured port forwarding for SMTP, POP3, Web, and DNS to point to my server on the LAN. This all works great and the websites work for clients on the outside (Internet side).

But....

When I type in the hostname for one of my websites, I get the router login page.

I don't see any options to select port forwarding based on the host header value which would be the perfect fix. Then if I asked for nevaehsoap.com it would forward to my web server but if I asked for 192.168.0.1 (internal IP of my router), I would get the router logon.

In the past with other routers, I have fixed this problem by using my own DNS server which then served up 192.168.0.10 (my web server) for any of my hosted sites and forwarded dns requests to my router (which forwarded to my ISP) for all other sites. I was able to put in my own DNS settings for the DHCP server built into my router.

With the VT2442 I can not override the DNS settings for DHCP client. It always gives out 192.168.0.1 (itself) for DNS. And then it always forwards to the ISP DNS servers. It does this even though I have set up port forwarding for DNS to my internal DNS server (also 192.168.0.10).

I though of (2) options for solving this...

I could host my own DNS for all my web sites. This is extra work and my domain registrar does it for free and they do a great job and have much faster servers.

I could host my own DHCP server and disable the DHCP feature of my router. Then I would configure my DHCP to hand out my DNS server info. All good I suppose but...

Problem with that is, I bought the router thinking I would plug my web server directly into the VT2442, put it on its own subnet, and use QOS rules to give it priority over my LAN clients. This would make my web sites respond better even if my kids were playing xBox live or I was running torrents, etc.

My understanding is that if I put the web server on its own port in the router, the LAN clients will not be able to reach it for DHCP requests. Correct? I don't want to configure another server just for DHCP on my LAN.

I really wish the VT2442 DHCP would just let me set the DNS infor it passes out!

I know this is highly technical but any help or ideas on how to solve this would be very much appreciated!

Hi John,

I am having the same issue.

Did you get this resolved? If so what was the solution?

Thanks

Kevin,

I disabled DHCP on my router and set up DHCP on my Windows 2003 server. I did this so I could give out the Windows server IP address for the DNS server entries. I used the router internal IP as the gateway IP address.

Then I set up DNS on my Windows server. I created entries for each of my hosted websites with the internal IP address of my web server. I set up the DNS to forward all other queries to the routers internal IP to resolve all other DNS requests.

Works good. Good luck. This is a major flaw with this router in my opinion. That and the inability to change the DNS server list for DHCP. Forced me to use another DNS and another DHCP server.

They are routing port 80 traffic on the internal network destined for the external ip address of the router to the admin interface. This traffic should go to the port forwarding rules for processing. You should also be able to move the admin interface to another port for traffic from inside like you can for traffic from outside your network. Its messed up.

I fixed it in another way.

My internal network computers could not see the server on any port that was forwarded by the VT2442. Furthermore, the VT2442 had very poor Voip performance when the WAN was heavily loaded.

I purchased a D-Link DIR-635 QOS router. Set it up with the same ports forwarding, using the VT2442 as a Voip device only and everything is fine. Voip is better too under heavy traffic.


Thanks
