MN-700 HTTP server - port forwarding

Hi,

I have a MN-700. I have two desktops which are wired
connections. One operates under Windows 2000, the other
operates under Mandrake Linux 10. Both machines have a
static IP. Both machines run HTTP servers and are visible
from each other.

When I tried to configure the port forwarding for my
webserver, I tried forwarding port 80 incoming to port 80
on the linux machine, then the windows machine. Neither
time was I capable of forming a connection.

With some troubleshooting, I discovered that I was unable
to ping my router's PPPOE assigned IP address, nor could I
ping it's default gateway, however, I can ping other
LAN/WAN computers.

I have disabled the ICMP filter for the internal firewall.
And have tried both reseting and hard-booting the router.
Is there something missing? Ideally I don't want to have
to concider running a DMZ.

Is there something I'm missing?

The MN-700 does not support loopback -- you cannot reach a
server within the LAN using the WAN IP from a LAN client.
You need to use a computer from outside (or a reflector).

To get the server running set the persistent port forward
on port 80 to one of the machines. From the Internet, use
the WAN IP shown on the first page of the router. This, of
course, assuming your ISP is not blocking port 80.

ICMP pings can be disabled (and reenabled) on the router.

The upcoming firmware in SP1 should address this issue.

Good Luck.

I have found that the MN-700 port forwarding doesnt work
on the internet. Application or perssistent both dont work
for me.

I also followed the DMZ instructions to the letter.
Assigned a static IP to one PC, removed it form the DHCP
list...etc etc
Surprise.. it didnt work either.
The hardware or software for this thing doesnt work.
It is a wireless network for people who browse the net and
play the odd game but never serve.

Odd

It's working for me. Running an FTP server, using app triggered ports for
ICQ, have forwarded ports for RDP..
