PostPosted: Mon Aug 22, 2005 11:45 am    Post subject: RT31P2 Web server Port forwarding issues Reply with quote Back to top

OK, I'm just trying to run a simple web server behind my RT31P2 router. I have a static IP on my computer behind the router, and have enable port forwarding on the router.

Start/End port: 80
Forwarded to my local web server IP 192.168.my.ip

Now, with this configuration, if while on my LAN pc I put in my public router address, I get through to my web server fine. I can see my test pages, and navigate directories perfectly.

However, when I test from a machine outside of my network, it tells me my public IP "can't be found". I can see attempts being made to connect on my routers incoming connection log...even though the log is not exactly very descriptive.

If I set my local machine up as a DMZ computer, it still has the same result. I'm beginning to think that the port forwarding on this stupid thing is just a feature put for show, and they never actually expected anyone to use it. Very frustrating...I've worked in this kind of setup multiple times in the past with Netgear and Belkin routers, and have never had an issue. Is anyone else having this problem, or is anyone with this router running a web server? Any help would be greatly appreciated, spent a good five hours yesterday on configuring something that should take five minutes. Thanks.

I am running a web server behind the RT31P2 router as you are, and port forwarding is functioning properly. As a matter of fact, I am running 3 web servers.

I'm certain you know what you are doing, but have you checked the "Enable" box at the end of the line? In the past, I have forgotten to do that with my Linksys router, and of course the port forwarding will not work.

Is your RT31P2 behind your modem or another router? If it is behind your modem, it should work. If it is behind another router, make sure there isn't any port blocking there.

It has been reported at this forum that UPnP forwarding does not work with this router. However Port Range Forwarding does work.

I know this is not much help, but let us know what you find.

Good Luck

Yeah, have it enabled. I tried UPnP after I tried PRF just in the hopes it would work, but after getting the same result I fell back to just messing with PRF. I appreciate the reply, especially since you're running three web servers. Do you know what revision of the firmware you are running? I *think* mine was 1.28...I'm at work now but that's the number I remember from last night. If I'm not mistaken, there is a revision 1.29 recently released...but we can't download those ourselves correct? Checked Linksys website and it didn't have the download available. Anyway, I'll definetely keep you posted (I'll be trying whats listed below in a few hours or so). If you could post your firmware revision when you have time, that'd be great...thanks again.



Just a thought, but from reading around the forums it seems like it might be a viable solution to my problem.

I've seen other posts that mention a dual router setup. Would putting my old router, a Belkin (which handled port forwarding fine), in front of the RT31P2 work all right? Will the RT31P2 pick up a local IP and net access allowing the phone to work still? If I can avoid using this thing for anything related to...well...routing, I'd love to. It seems to do its job fine in terms of the voice routing, but not so well with my PC traffic routing.

I'll be trying this out when I get home later tonight and will post how it turns out. Still, pretty frustrating that this 'router' can't handle one of the most basic routing features.

Hah! I figured it out...and it wasn't the router. I set everything up dual router setup when I got home, got it all working..phone, net, and set port forwarding up on my old router. So now I'm ready to test it out...I'm figuring it will start working now and no big deal. Well it still doesn't, so now I'm *really* confused.

I couldn't for the life of me understand what was going on. Then just for the hell of it I changed my listening port forwarding port to 81, and mapped that to 80 on the local machine. Presto...it works.

Seems like Cablevision (Opt. Online) decided that blocking incoming port 80 requests was a good idea, because that's what they appear to be doing. Whatever, works now that's all I care about...and I can go back to my single router setup.

Man, doing anything with residential broadband **** eh? Take care fellas.

PostPosted: Fri Aug 26, 2005 8:44 pm    Post subject: Question Reply with quote Back to top

Now not to sound like a total dunce, but can you please tell me how you have it hooked up? Currently in my machine I have 2 Nics..one is connected from the cable modem directly to 1 nic in my PC which gives me an external ip and gets my website working, and the second nic is connected to the Internet port in the RT31P2 router and that Nic has a private IP 192.168.15.100 - but with this setup, my phone doesn't work because there is no direct internet connection to the router. However, if I connect the the modem to the router, and do it that way, my website is not viewable from outside since i have a private IP address.

Where am I going wrong? Also what do I have to config in the router? How should it be hooked up and which mac address should the router have? Thanks for any help.

Don't think it has anything to do with your ISP (CableVision), but rather with the LinkSys router. It uses port 80 for its administration pages, and, even though it is possible to enable remote administration on a different port, I believe port 80 is reserved on this thing. Resorted to the same solution as you did, and have the web-server listening to a different port. That is not a real solution though. Still looking.

I've been wrestling with the same problem trying to get my webcam working, after a week of fiddling around I found this on the Vonage website. Glad they decided to lock up port 80 on us...

---------------------------------------------
These are the ports that Vonage requires to be OPEN for successful use of the Vonage device (the ability to make and receive calls, download device profiles, firmware, etc). Under most circumstances these ports are already opened or allowed. You must be careful to not inadvertently close them.

The following ports are needed for OUTGOING Internet communications from the Vonage device to the Vonage servers.

DNS: Port 53 UDP (Domain Name Server - for resolving server IP addresses)

TFTP: Port 69 UDP (for profile upgrades/downgrades)

HTTP: Port 80 UDP (for firmware upgrades/downgrades)

NTP: Port 123 UDP (Network Time Protocol - so the device can sync to the proper time for Caller ID)

SIP: Port 5061 UDP is used for older Vonage devices (devices provisioned before 2005) Also, BSP Proxy Groups 1-8, and a.voncp.com communicate on port 5061.

The following ports are needed for INCOMING and OUTGOING Internet communications from and to Vonage devices and servers.

RTP (Voice) Traffic: Ports 10000-20000 UDP. When a call is made, a random port between 10000 and 20000 is used for RTP (Voice) traffic. If any of these ports are blocked, you may experience one way or no audio

Many cable providers seem to block Port 80 now... The other thing which can cause problems is if you're running firewall software on your computer. Make sure that it's either disabled or allows incoming access on the ports you're trying to let other people access. The firewalls on standalone routers are fine to leave on, though.
