Question about port forwarding port 80 (for apache) and a couple other questions

Q: Question about port forwarding port 80 (for apache) and a couple other questions

Hey Guys,

I have been messing around with Apache from (XAMPP) on my Windows computer. I know that it is not secure, but I am just testing it for right now (for fun).

I am behind a Linksys WRT54g router. I can easily access the apache server from internally (locally), and in order for me to be able to access it externally (external IP in address bar), I have to port forward in my router.

So, I port forwarded port 80 and everything worked fine. I just had a question about this.

Since most internet (HTTP) traffic is served through 80, and I just port forwarded 80 to one computer, how do the other computers on my network still have access to the net. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that this works, but I would just like to know how. Theoretically, wouldn't all the traffic that is coming through 80 be routed to that one computer?

Can someone explain this to me?

Also, when people use Apache to host sites, do they usually keep the apache ServerName (in httpd.conf) at localhost, or do they change it to a different IP? I would imagine they would keep it at localhost, so what would be the reason for changing that to a different IP?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've set up a web server on my machine, and I'm trying to get it to be accessible through the Internet. I set up a static IP; it works perfectly. Then, no matter how what I did in my router's (D-Link DI-624 on Windows XP SP2, no software firewalls) config, I still couldn't get through. I even turned off the firewall completely for my computer via the DMZ option: still nothing! I'm completely stumped. Does anyone have any ideas as to what's going on? Thanks for the help.

Hello - have some very basic router & port questions.

1) How do I know if my internet connection uses a router and if so what router is it?

2) How do I configure the router to allow port forwarding? I want to make use of BitComet, a torrent downloading application.

A:Router & port forwarding questions

Does your internet go from the wall to your pc? From a wall to a box to a pc? If so...what model and make is the box? Oh, and watch torrents...many are viruses and will screw your computer up faster than a hamster runs from Richard Gere.

Most likely you don't have a router because you have no idea what one is

Port forwarding processes depend on the router you have.

Please excuse me if this is in the wrong place, or has already been covered. However, out of everything I read that was close enough to my problem still did not answer the questions. I recently switched to AT&T Uverse Fiber Optic service. Using a Motorola NVG589 from AT&T. Not sure why, but it has a Cisco 802.11n AP Bridge VEN501 attached (I don't know for what). There doesn`t seem to be any way to alter any of the settings with the wireless bridge, at least without messing anything up. On the Motorola modem/router I've gone through the firewall tab, then to NAT/Gaming tab, and have done the following: gave my PC a static IP through the Windows 7 interface (don't know if there was anything to do for this part on the modem/router or not), assigned ports TCP/UDP: 7350 (for Reign of Kings private home server), and assigned it to the static IP of my PC. Now when I get to allowing this through Windows 7 firewall, that's where I'm getting stumped I think. I know for sure I need more info in this area, so all comments are welcome. In any case, the port checker tool I have says the ports are closed and I need them open, any ideas?

Okay, so, I have network camera's at the office and I connect to them from home through my VPN connection and i just type in the IP of the camera and a login comes up. Well, I was in vegas last week and I had set-up port forwarding to each IP of each camera but I could only connect to one camera on port 80. So, as a newby to this, How do I set-up outside access to each camera? I can assign a specific port to each camera and a specific IP. So when I enter the wan IP of my router it directs me to the camera on port 80. How do i connect to the other camera's? Does any of this make sense.

A:Port Forwarding question

Each camera will need it's own IP address and port internally. Just open the associated ports on the router and it should work. Are you just using a web browser to view the cameras?

I'm not sure what the term is called but here is what I'd like to do, I have two firewalls, behind the second firewall is a web server. I'd like the first firewall to accept port 80 request and send it to the second firewall as say a port 90 request. Then the second firewall would send that to my webserver that is listening for port 90 requests. My question here is how do I make the first firewall forward as a port 90 request?

The firewalls are d-links dl-704. I know these aren't the most extensive firewalls, and if this is possible with these devices. But I am willing to get the devices that can handle this setup. Thanks.

I have been pulling my hair out trying to setup a server (not that i have much to pull out)

Anyhow, i have my external ip address 81.xxx.xxx.xxx , i am using port 14147 which i think i have forwarded on the router. I have just selected the one port not a range. The router also has a port trigger setting which i have made the same.
I have gone into windows firewall a set it to allow inbound and outbound traffic for filezilla, but no joy. I have checked online and i'm told the port is not open

I am using flashfxp and filezilla programs. If i put the server ip address in i can login using flashfxp.

I have done this many years in the past and seem to remember that i can't use my external ip address as both external and internal are both behind the router, am i right ?

Having said all that if i can't get an open port from the online sources then no one else can.

Can someone give me a COMPLETE idiots walk through please for the Virgin Super Hub 2 using the two apps stated.

Hi, I have a Billion 5100 adsl modem/router. I am using Azureus at the moment and I have everything set up fine. I have forwarded the listening port Azureus uses on my router and I have disabled UPnP in Azureus.

My question is this, how does Azureus(or any bittorrent client) connect to other torrent clients using ports that I haven't forwarded? And if it can do this, why do I need to forward a specific port in the first place if it can use other ports to connect anyway.

hi guys

lets say i have port 3389 for RDP opened to ip address

and that computer is off

will sites like shields up and other pen testing software report the port 3389 as open? or do you have to have an
operating device etc at the internal end


A:port forwarding question

Port testing software can only report whether it received a response (open) or not (closed). A computer that is off does not respond. Hence in your scenario testing software will report the port as not open.

I want to be able to access my PC remotely, initially as a basic HTTP webserver - maybe later on other ports.

I'm using Uk talk talk normal domestic ISP broadband, with a HG520b wireless router. The server is running XP Pro, connected through a powerline hub to the LAN1 port on the router, along with about 3 or 4 other wired / wireless PCs. Internet works fine on all of them.

- I've registered a URL with dyndns
- I've set the server to a local static IP,
- DHCP on the router config is limited to 32 dynamic range
- I've set ports 80, 443 and 4125 on the router NAT settings to forward to the server static IP
- I can reach the router settings now over the external internet, e.g. myname.dyndns.net:8080 (as port 80 is forwarding)
- I'm not running any software firewall, I've tried with the router firewall settings on and off.
- I've set up a very simple default HTLM IIS page, which works fine on 'localhost' on the server machine.

I'd hoped that with this done, myname.dyndns.net would resolve and reach the default page. It doesn't - just hangs and gives up after 20 secs or so.

Any suggestions would be welcome. I'd read somewhere to set the router settings to 'bridge', but that just screwed up the internet access for the other machines, so it's set back. I'm now out of ideas

Many thanks in advance.

Hey guys,

I've run into a network that I've been trying to figure out how its setup but I am not very great with networks, just very mediocre at figuring them out.

Anyway, I'm trying to setup a DVR for this network and its running through the following:

T1 Drop Line (It looks like anyway)
T1 > Cisco 1841
Cisco 1841 > Adtran Netvanta 3448
Adtran > DVR via Ethernet

My question is, of this hardware what device would I need to forward the proper ports on so when I enter an external IP in a browser it will load the HTML Interface for the DVR.

I have been trying to google the devices for instructions on port forwarding for either of them, but Portforward.com doesnt have either listed and when I try and enter the default gateway into a URL bar nothing comes up.

I am not sure of this hardware which is a switch, which is a router (Like I said... Mediocre =P ) because in the past I have only dealt with real small networks at home and small businesses just running off a typical router.

Thank you for the help

TL;DR : Can I set up a port forward on a router, that points to an IP on the same subnet as the router ,and not the one it's making (particularly the to the broadcast address .255) .

Hello everyone , I just flashed my WRT610N (router) in order to use it as a waking device for my computer . It's been a 3-4 day long odyssey on understanding and testing wake on LAN configurations , and now finally it's coming to an end .

Here's the arrangement :
WAN-->router of my ISP-->DD-WRT -->other devices
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\-->My computer

WAN optic cable comes in my room to the 1st router , there is my comp. and a cable goes to the other part of the apartment where the (now) DD-WRT device is . In practice this is the only viable arrangement .
So , as I don't have a way to configure the ARP table on the 1st router (ISP says it can't be done) to get WoL working , I have to use the only other always-on device - the 2nd router . As you probably already figured - DD-WRT and my comp. are on one subnet ,and the DD-WRT itself makes a second subnet .

My idea was to port forward from router 1 (which has a static public IP ) to DD-WRT , and again from the DD-WRT to the broadcast IP of the first subnet. That as it appears is just not working (the second forwarding) . The fact is that the broadcast address of the 1st net (192....) is not accessible from the second net (that of the DD-WRT : 191...) .

I have been using an DSL Siemens speedstream 6520 router at home. I usually carry out some R&D by placing servers behind the router. I access the services on each of the servers from the ouside using port forwarding and it has been working fine for http, ftp, RDP, any user defined ports etc but in the case of port 25 SMTP its not working at all. I have checked the port on the local lan and I am able to telnet to that server but from the outside only on this port 25 I am not able to telnet. But If i were to change the SMTP port number from 25 to any other port like 24 or 26, I am able to telnet from the outide. Is there any way i can make SMTP port 25 to work and access the same from the outside.


A:SpeedStream 6520 DSL Router - Port forwarding for port 25

Is it possible that port 25 has been blocked by your ISP? This is a pretty common thing for ISP's to do as a SPAM prevention measure.

As you can see, there are quite a few ISP's blocking port 25 on this list.

I'm curious about how port forwarding works. I get the general gist of it and NAT. However what im really wondering is how when im playing world of warcraft on my computer and my brother is playing on his computer at the same time, the packets get where they need to go. wouldnt wow be sending return packets to my external ip with the default port, how does my router know which computer to pass the packets along to.

A:Question about how port forwarding works

It answers not to default port. Run netstat on both PCs and maybe you will understand something. Source port not same as destination, by this router knows where to answer because source ports on both PCs for tcp communication are different then connection established. This have nothing common with portforwarding. Its absolutely other question.

I have a situation where there is a network of POS terminals (presuming Windows based) that are used to process credit cards. They are tied into a wired router (Netgear Firewall) and recently I installed his old DVR equipment. I tied his DVR into his router and opened the necessary port (+1024) to allow incoming traffic to view the DVR remotely. My question is this. Can port forwarding to one device (in this case, embedded DVR) allow a hacker to jump from one machine to another to attack the more important one? I hope I made that clear. I would assume no (especially in my situation being that the DVR is embedded, not PC based)...but I was just curious. Thanks in advance!

A:Question about security by port forwarding?

Read other 16 answers

I have always wondered this so I figured I might as well ask...

Since most SOHO routers are setup with DHCP enabled but then also have port forwarding WHY isn't there a better system? Either DHCP reservation where a certain MAC always gets a specific IP OR maybe just put it where port is forward to the MAC so this way the port is directed to the PC no matter the IP? I know MAC's can be spoofed but this is really the only hard number I can put it towards... that and if the mac is spoofed and they are on your netwoork your doomed to begin with.

Just always made me wonder why SOHO routers don't have some features like this as port forwarding becomes a little more complex than the plug and play network and I have seen SO many times where someone forwatrds a port to a DHCP client just to later find out the program isb't working as it should (since their client changed IP's).

Anyone know the mindset of SOHO router manufacturers and can enlighten me?

A:Whay can't you? - Port forwarding question

I'm not sure I'm following you on this, but what I do is give the computer a static IP outside of the DHCP range (if range is, and router is192.168.1.1 then computer in question will get and then setup port forwarding.

Hi all,
thank you for reading this post.

I need to forward a specific port to one of my pc on my home wireless network.

I have tried many things to no avail. including:
Set a static IP in network connections found via ipconfig.
Set port to forward to the static ip in router setup (
Disabled UPnP both in app and router.
Disabled DHCP server in router setup, switched to static ip mode.
Set exceptions in any sort of firewalls (windows, router, anti-virus)

however I still cannot get the "open port check tool" (http://www.canyouseeme.org/) to see the port I'm trying to forward, as a matter of fact, this tool cannot see any port I typed in so far, I haven't tried all 65535 though,

I use comcast broadband, and they claim to have no blocked ports on the ISP level.

my router is linksys WRT54G and I'm running XP SP2

to sum up, my question is: what is blocking my ports? how can I find out? what sites, tools, programs etc. can help narrow down the issue?

my goal is: to forward a port to one of my pc on my home wireless network.

p.s. the port I'm trying to forward is in the 45000 - 65535 range, so there should be no conflicts.

Thanks a bunch,

2. If I want to share my NAS to some people outside LAN network, should I set the port forwading from my router or from my NAS ?
3. How to set ftp enable for my NAS ? should I change the setting on my NAS or router ?

pls help

thx in adv

A:several question about router, nas and port forwarding

Did you enable Remote Administration in the router? It's a specific setting required for outside remote access to the router and it will have have custom port, maybe 8080.

Does you NAS have a cloud sharing feature? If so use that to share the folders and files you want.

FTP would require the NAS to support it, then it needs to be enabled in the NAS and then allowed/port forwarded in the router.

It would help if you posted the exact model of the router and the NAS.

I've got a friend that approached me earlier today with the idea of running his own private wow server. While I know this is feasible, though maybe not with the hardware he is running, we are at a disagreement on whether or not it is possible for him to forward ports specifically for his computer and leave the rest of his household electronics unaffected by the security lapse inherent in doing so. Is it possible to forward ports for certain computers on a network and keep them closed for others?

A:Question about port forwarding for a private wow server

Yes, When you forward a port in a router you have to specify the IP address of the PC that the port is forward to. This doesn't mean that once someone gets in through the WoW server port they cant try to access other things.

I just got a new ISP. They are blocking port 80. This means I cannot access my websites being hosting on my server running out of my home network.

Im having this problem, My work has disabled all other outgoing/incomming traffic on port 80 except http(ip filter), Its firewalled so ofc the Firewall has blocked most of the other "unnessesary" ports. Which left me with an option to set both the Remote desktop and the Apache server im running on my home PC to port 80 and use a Webbased remote desktop application. Problem is ofc i cant have both running on port 80 so i was wondering if there's a solution to trick the server at work that one of them is running on port 80 even if its not, or if there's some type of workaround to solve my situation.

If your work has put a filter up, then there's nothing that we can do to help you to try to circumvent their security policies. For all you know they could be watching you. I would suggest looking at thier policies and procedures before trying to 'break' their policies.

I'm not much of a computer person but I did some research online and tried a few things: I turned off the option on skype's advanced settings for it to listen on Port 80 and then rebooted. I also ran a command, 'netstat -aon' and did not find a listing of 1270.0.1:80/443 or which seems to imply that nothing should be affecting port 80 or 443.

I also downloaded firefox and it cannot access the internet either. The only way I'm able to access the internet at the hotel I'm located at was to call the hotel's tech support and they had me go into the LAN settings of internet options and manually select port 8080.

Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Some info on common ports used, http://www.chaminade.org/MIS/Articles/Fire...ortSecurity.htmI don't know much about connectivity problems...but it seems to me that...if you never had this problem before and your system connects properly outside of this hotel...the hotel/location may be the problem.Worth a read, IMO: http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-37752-c...on-the-internetLouis

I am a beginner really and got this message after eliminating (hopefully) a prgram called Antivirus Action from my computer. I can't get on the internet because I keep getting this message. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Open Internet Explorer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan settings > Proxy server > Advanced. Delete the proxy server settings under HTTP, HTTPS (secure) and FTP (and Socks, if any). Then, under Proxy server, uncheck all boxed.

If running Firefox too, disable proxy server.

I've had this problem for quite some time, and I really don't understand what's going on. I try to set up an apache server on my computer to help test my web designs, only it won't open now. I've checked the port(80), and nothing seems to be attached to it(it says "Listening").

I did a little research and there was something about the host and the virtual host trying to bind to the same port, but I don't think that's the problem either because the host binds to 80 and the virtualhost is set to 443(in the httpd.conf anyway). I would really like to fix this.

Assuming you are doing this on a Windows computer I am betting IIS is somehow interfering.

As a test or work around try setting your apache configurationg file to listen on port 8080.
See if you can connect to it using the urlort

I found someone else had the same problem as I do here

"I've been having a problem with google. Every time I click on a link it will take me to some "searchclick8.com" or something like that through a few redirections. The only way that I am able to access the links is if I click "cached" under the link. Also, whenever I click on the GMail tab, it says that the certificate can not be found and if I click continue it says "Not Found The requested URL /accounts/ServiceLogin was not found on this server. Apache/2.2.3 (Red Hat) Server at www.google.com Port 443" But then when I go on GMail on my desktop, it works fine. Please someone help!"

So basically, I cannot access anything Google-related (search, blogger, wave), but Gtalk works fine. I think it might be a result of accidentally deleting infected files via AVG; I've also tried using Spybot and Norton... .

Error message:
Apache/2.2.3 (Red Hat) Server at www.google.com Port 443
Thanks so much in advance!

I saw this problem listed, but My issue is a bit different and the previous solution didn't work for me.

Please forgive me if any of my posts offend, as I am new to this site. I don't intend to be rude, but my ignorace may anger some. Also forgive the length of the post, I wish to be thorough as to avoid getting possible solutions that I have already tried or are not relavent.

I recently had some repairs done on my computer which involved reformatting my hard drive and when I got it back started having trouble accessing some internet sites. Unlike the previous person's post with this issue i can still access the internet and 95% of sites, but a select (and seemingly random) few give the IE cannot access website error. When I run the networking Diagnostics for Windows XP get the following error:

Check the Firewall settings for the HTTP Port (80), HTTPS port (443), and FTP port (21)

The only firewalls I know of on my computer are Windows and my router (both of which I have disabled) i have also tried Firefox and it craps out at the same exact sites.

In addition to selected sites, some third party programs are having trouble accessing the internet. This includes Nortons Installer (I haven't been able to install my antivirus yet because of this error) and I haven't been abble to register Microsoft office after I installed because it cannot access the internet for ID Key Verification.

Well, this has me baffled. My Bell Internet Security Services Activation (I just installed it on a computer not used for some 4 or 5 months) popped up a window saying "Waiting for Internet connection"...and waiting and waiting. But my Netgear wireless connection to the router in the house indicates "very good" signal strength, which I thought meant I was connected. Obviously not!

I tried opening IE. "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" (much as I expected)

Clicked the button which was showing on the IE cannot connect page "Diagnose connection problems" and followed the instructions. The final diagnostic is "Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check the firewall settings for the ports HTTP...etc." Where on this earth are they?!

I checked the Windows Firewall settings and found it "off (not recommended)" so I switched it on.

I re-ran the diagnostic on the IE page and nothing has changed.

My question is:

How do I check the settings for HTTP port (80) and HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21)? Also what do I set them to?

Many thanks, in advance, for a solution to my problem!

A:Solved: Help! Settings for HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443), FTP port (21)

So you just installed an Internet Security Suite which has a Firewall built-in and then you enabled XP' built-in firewall? I am baffled as to why you would do that. The new software you installed has to be blocking it somehow. I would search their website for known issues.

Or just uninstall it and use something different.

I am setting up an ftp site using default windows setup. I have added an ip address specific to the ftp. Everything works from inside my network. I would like to know how to forward throught port 21 to this ip so I can give a username to someone and have them access it over the internet. I have a cisco pix 506 firewall. I can't seem to get the info I need from their site. I figured what I was asking for was too simple. I am doing this from the command line. I don't know the web address for the pix. I have previously logged in as privilege mode.
Thanks in advance for any help, Jason.

This might be a reallyyy dumb question but oh well: When setting up VNC (I'm using TightVNC) does the viewing computer need to have ports forwarded? And if so is it just the ports that it's trying to access on the server's IP? Finally, if this is the case, how would I go about setting up a VNC server on my home computer that I can access from work where I have no admin rights to forward ports and whatnot?
