Port Forward SharePoint Server, Linksys Router HELP!

Q: Port Forward SharePoint Server, Linksys Router HELP!

I think what I'm doing should be pretty simple but I'm not sure why its not working.

We have a Linksys RV016 router receiving 2 separate dynamic IP connections on WAN1 (Linksys adsl modem) and WAN2 (Billion wireless adsl router). We also have a dynamic DNS service subscribed to from DynDNS.

Currently, all three the RV016 and both adsl modems are configured to report the public IP to the DDNS service. I'm not sure if ONLY the RV016 should be doing this, or only ONE of the two modems, or if it doesn't mattter.

We have a SHarepoint Server running behind the RV016 that I want to make available from outside, by Internet users.

In the RV016, I've enabled the DDNS service, and forwarded ports 80, 444 and the specific port that our Sharepoint Site is running answering on. I've forwarded these to the static IP address that is assigned to our Sharepoint Server. I've set the Access Rules to ALLOW these connections from any interface, always.

With the RV016 Firewall on or off, hitting the DDNS name always times out, but I know the DDNS service is working because the login information resolves and updates in the RV016 admin, and pinging the name resolves to the same IP address as our reported public IP address.

What else must I do on the RV016, or what should I be doing on either or both of the dsl modems? I have disconnected one, and then alternatively the other adsl router/modems so that we're only receiving one internet connection in trying to eliminate problems, but nothing seems to work.

Please help me do my job up here. I appreciate any feedback from anyone.

Just wonder how all requests for web pages on my server are forwarded to a certain computer on my LAN (the web server computer).

The server and some clients are behind a router/firewall and when someone wants to view my web pages of course I want the web server to answer the request. No client shoudl answer it.

How is that done?

A:How can I forward port 80 on my router to web server?

You should have a GUI management page that will allow particular ports to be forwared to whatever LAN IP address is required. e.g. a Netgear router will have a "Port forwarding" link in the "Advanced" section from where all the necessary forwards can be set up.

What router are you using - a make/model would help people to direct you to the necessary GUI pages or point out the details in the user manual.

I've been searching for a solution to this for a few days now and I'm really not happy with what I've found(actually next to nothing useful)
I have two networks and users from one network must not connect to the other one. There are two computers(one in each network) that have a connection set up via a router. I have no control over that, but most ports are open between the two. They are in different subnets.
What I need is a way to exchange data between the two via FTP.
The original idea was to have an FTP server on one computer and a port forward on the other one. That way both network would be accessing the same server.
Now I would probably find 10 or 20 ways to do that under Linux/BSD/whatever, but I need it in Windows as the two computers run some stuff I'm not allowed to change.
I'm having trouble finding such software. The best thing I came up with was a proxy on security.nnov.ru. I tested the thing in another place and worked like a charm IF the bridge between the two networks was via separate network cards. But my configuration only has one network card on both computers. And it seems that that proxy has a big problem with doing everything on one card. (it's not a proxy in the real sense. it's more of a port forward. they just called it a proxy). I also tried crossing via a windows share to the other computer and setting an FTP user's root to that, but it seams the port for SMB is blocked. Then I tried FTP drive software. But b... Read more

Hi Guys,
I hope im in the right place to post this request for help.

I have an ETec router and a couple of PC's

1 of the PC's is running IIS and i want to run my own web site instead of paying a host... so I set up the site on the PC using IIS and it runs ok on the local network ...

So I bought a web address to test it and as i have a dynamic IP from my ISP i went to zone edit for them to forward requests from my URL to my IP ..

But when my url or IP is used in a browser you get taken to the routers log in and not the PC's web server.

So I looked up how to port forward with my router and this is the steps I found Port Forwarding for the Etec pti-845G

I followed those steps here http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Etec/845G/HTTP.htm and gave the web server PC an internal static IP to forward to and still the same if you enter my IP into a browser im taken to the routers log in each time.

The tutorial I followed has a download that says it checks if you have done it correctly and it says when i run it that Port 80 is being blocked by somethings, so I called my ISP and the say theu do not block ports...

So Im looking for someone who can assist me .
Sorry for such a long post I hope someone can help.

A:How do i port forward a MC server on Frontier Communications

Router model number? Start by updating the firmware on the router, then if you're still having issues, while the router settings are set to forward, reset the router by holding in the reset button. After you reset the router you will have to completely reconfigure it. Also try power cycling it, letting it sit off for about 30 seconds.

Well today I was trying to open the warcraft 3 port to host custom maps. So i went into my routers configuration through my browser and got around to the area where i could make ports public or private i set the options accordingly and loaded up wc:3. i still couldnt host so my friend jeff said that it might be because i have a dynamic ip on my router. my computer itself has a static ip so i figured i would try to do the same for my actual router in its static ip area. i plugged in the adresses and yadayada my computer and then as i hit [add] my computer choked for a minute then froze for good. i restarted it and got back in my internet connection appeared to be connected at 100mb/s, but as you probably have guessed was a fluke and couldnt get pass my router and a ping showed that i wasnt even in connection with it. i went to my router and with a paper clip pushed in the small button on the router that read [reset]. i was hoping that it would reset the routers settings and i would be able to reconfigure it to my computer like it was new. that didnt work so here i am without a router with a direct connection to my modem looking for help. any ideas anyone?

A:Zonet router port forward nightmare!

See the router manual for the factory reset procedure. You may have to hold down the reset button or play around with cables.

No, the problem was not your dynamic IP address. Don't ask Jeff for any more advice

The router's connection to the internet and your computer's connection to the router are completely different things and they are not related to each other in any way. You don't have to change the router WAN settings to somehow match your computer's LAN settings.

I've recently changed ISP, from Ntl (cable modem) to Sky broadband (ADSL). As a result, I had to change my router. I originally had a Belkin F5D7230-4, which I had working perfectly well. Now, I've got a Netgear DG834GT.

The problem I'm having is when I try to forward a port. I've followed the instructions on the port forward site for my router, and as far as I can tell I've done everything exactly as they've stated. But no dice! I'm still being informed that the port I'm trying to open isn't. I've even tried a different port, but I'm having the same trouble.

Can anyone help me sort this out? Many thanks!

I have had the WBMR-G54 router for about 18 months with a number of user rules set up for port forwarding for a network music device and my PS3. The rules work fine but despite having applied, saved the configuration and restarted the unit the router will eventually just drop the rules.

They can last anything from hours to (occasionally) weeks, but eventually at some point (usually every couple of days or so) I have to go back into the GUI and reapply them.

I spoke to Buffalo about it some time ago and their advice was to reset the router and reconfigure it. I did this to no avail.

It's not a massive headache as I don't always need the ports forwarding, this is the reason I've put up with it for so long, but it is irritating to say the least

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I will try to shorten this.

I have 2 routers, one in my bonus room, one in a bedroom on other side of house. Bedroom Router is a wireless access point (Belkin G). Bonus Room Router is the main router. It has 2 360's connected to it, as well as my PC and an ethernet going to Bedroom Router. This router, the Bonus Room Router, is a newer Belkin Wireless N.

I used to have them switched, the N in bedroom, G in bonus room. Long story why I switched them again, so that now N is in Bonus room, G in bedroom.

So, my 360s are now connected to my N. Problem is, I have a strict NAT now, as opposed to Open when I have the G hooked up to my 360s.

I have tried everything to get the NAT to open. I've tried setting a static IP, forward ports, etc. I did EVERYTHING on portforward.com. Still get strict. I have UnP enabled.

Now, I know port forwarding is what should make it work. I found my 360's IPs by testing their connection and writing down the IPs (192.168.10 and 192.168.11). Problem is, when I enter those IPs in the port forward section of my router, when I click apply, it refreshes and my entries are gone. BUT, when I use the IP of (my PC), they work correctly. But I still have strict on my 360s.

Now here's another weird thing: randomly, one of the two 360s will switch to open for no reason mid-'game' (Modern Warefare 2). Then it may stay that way, or go back, or switch to the other console, etc.

I have no idea what's going on here. My... Read more

It means you need to "open" a port in the Linksys router to let Macromedia access the net. Ports are like holes in the router. Will let certain programs "bypass" the firewall.

A:LinkSys 4 port router and Firewall

I have an IDEA...it may be right, it may be wrong, but hopefully it will help!

My guess is that the services you want to use are dependant on identifying your ip address. When using the router, you are sharing one internet connection, the Linksys is using DHCP to assign internal addresses which are not visible to the internet (part of the "firewall" protection). You could choose to disable DHCP, but then you would probably have to purchase two IP addresses from your ISP.

Hope that helps...

now theres this new BS feature that when i try to do that gives me some port overlap error. is there some custom firmware i can DL to get rid of this crap or maybe something i can do with port triggering? not sure how that works. i just want to be able to turn my computer on and host games without worrying which ip i got

I'm on the edge of pulling all my hair out. I can't seem to figure out how to get some of my firewalled ports working properlly. Mainly, the one that annoys me the most is AIM Image connecting. When AIM 'direct connects' it allows users to send pictures back and forth to one another, as well as other files, sounds, zips, etc. My problem isn't that I can't get the Image direct connection to work, but that I can't get it to work properly.

I can almost always directly connect with somebody but THEY have to initiate the connection. If I attempt to connect then it times out and whines about a firewall. If they connect it works instantly. This isn't just for one person either, but for practically everybody I meet. And it's so annoying having to explain to people where the dang button for direction connections are.

As far as I understand AIM uses port 4443 for this, and I have both the TCP and UDP protocalls open. I am utterly confused.

The Modem is located at and the Router at In the router setup page I have properly forwarded and triggered my ports. However, when I visit my torrent site, it tells me that I am firewalled or "NAT". I used to have the Linksys WRT54G Router and it was configured to PPPoE and everything worked fine. One day I did a firmware upgrade on the router and it would no longer connect to the internet. I switched ti to Automatic Configuration - DHCP and it connected, but performance was slow and this NAT issue began. I eventually got the new router and I have the same problem. If I set it to PPPoE, put in he username and password, I lose my internet connection. If set to Automatic Config - DHCP it works, but, again, "NAT".

Verizon told me that this newer modem self configures itself as PPPoE and there is no need to set the router to PPPoE but I can't seem to get these ports forwarded or get around this NAT issue. It is causing a significant loss of performance and while torrenting I can not connect to others, meaning I can not share what I have downloaded (the torrent client won;t upload).

The problem here, is that when I go to (the router's setup screen) under Applications & Gaming -> Port Range Forward, I have setup port forwarding for Apache, Port: 80, Protocol: Both (TCP & UDP), IP Address: (this PC's IP address - the one with the web server setup on). But the problem is people who are not in my Network still cannot access my Web-Server. Now, I assume I am giving them the correct IP address - which is the IP address given on the router's setup screen under Status. I have everything setup correctly and it should work, but I have no idea why it won't work. Maybe, am I giving them the wrong IP address? I doubt that though because I get the same IP listed under my Firewall (ZoneLab's ZoneAlarm), under my Router's Status page, and at the two following sites: http://www.whatismyip.com & http://www.ipchicken.com - so I can't possibly be giving them the wrong IP address.

You are trying to configure it from the wrong place. I don't know how that print server can be configured, but the router is the last place to try.

You might need to use some special software to give it an IP/configure or maybe it wants to use DHCP to get an IP and will provide you with a web interface.

You an see from your router config the existing IP addrsses that have been given out. If you see something besides your own computers then that is most likely the print server.

I have tried everything that I can (and apparently Tech Support) can think of. Here is some more detail:

I am running a FileZilla server from my PC. I have a Linksys BEFSR41 v2 router. I have mapped all ports through the router and the XP firewall. I cannot access the server when the router is hooked up. I ran the modem straight to the comp, and it connected flawlessly. In the router, I have tried the following:

* Upgraded the firmware to version "1.46.02, Aug 03 2004"
* Mapped ports 20,21,22,990,and several other ports for Passive
* Disabled the "Block WAN Request"
* Disabled the "Filter Internet NAT Redirection"
* I have even tried to run it in DMZ

None of this has worked. Same error message every time. In FileZilla (client), the error is:
Status: Connecting to **my site** ...
Status: Connected with **my site**. Waiting for welcome message...
Error: Disconnected from server
Error: Unable to connect!

In WS_FTP the message reads like this:
Finding Host **my site** ...
Connecting to **my ip**:21
Connected to **my ip**:21 in 0.030043 seconds, Waiting for Server Response
Error reading response from server.
Connection closed by remote host.
Host type (1): Automatic Detect

Like I said, if I bypass the router, everything works great. So the router is the issue, or am I just off-base here?

Any help would be great, because I cannot see how this can be really that hard...

I have a Linksys router (WRT54G) and a RCA Digital Broadband Modem (DCM425) and have been using them to connect wirelessly to 2 laptops without a problem.

The last few days I have not been able to connect wirelessly to either computer. I used the Ethernet cable to connect directly to the modem and I was able to get on the Internet. So, since the modem was not the problem I tried connecting the Ethernet cable to the router and couldn't connect to the Internet. I still get the message "Cannot communicate with primary DNS server".

I called my Internet provider anyway and they said they saw I was hooked up to a Linksys router, and that the router was getting a valid ID address.

Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this problem with the router? Thanks!

A:Linksys Router cannot communicate with DNS Server

Did you try power cycling everything?
If that doesn't work you could probably try a complete hard reset of the router.

I am having problems accessing the internet on both of my PCs using the Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 4-Port. When I go to the browser and type in a website address the page does not load and I receive problem loading page. Any help would be appreciated, also I am running Windowx XP. I have the other PC that is running Windows Vista plugged into one of the ports on the router I also can't access the Internet on the PC that has Vista installed when using the router, but I can access the Internet when I connect directly using the DSL modem. Also the Port light and Internet lights come on and down in the bottom I get the yellow triangle with the exclamation point that says limited or no connectivity. I done the ipconfig on the computer that has Vista installed and got the following information.

A:Linksys EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 4-Port Switch BEFSR41 Problem:

I have a Linksys WRT54g wireless router. I use one of the LAN (wired) ports for one of my desktops. However, the other day, the first LAN port died on me. I was surfing the net, when the computer told me that a network cable has been unplugged. I checked the connections, but the problems persisted.

I then moved the cable to the next LAN port over on the built in switch, and that one worked. This leads me to believe that the first LAN port has failed.

What should I do about this? Do you think Linksys would provide me with a new one?

If it's under warranty I'm sure they will remedy the problem. If out of warranty it's your problem.

I need to share files on (4) Windows XP pro stations without a server and is currently sharing DSL on Linksys BEFSR81 router.

A:Sharing files: Linksys router, XP-OS, NO SERVER

No sweat. Enable file and print sharing on the XP box that you wish to share files on, in My Computer right click on the drive you wish to share and select sharing. You'll need to have an account with the same name and password as the machine that wants to access the files if you don't want to be asked for a password every time.

A:Linksys Router - Cannot communicate with primary dns server. REALLY NEED HELP!

Read other 15 answers

I have a laptop computer (wireless integrated, WinXP-Media) that I would like to use to print on one of two printers located remotely in my house.

I have the Linksys WRTG54 router configured to access the internet on my laptop. I have a WPA secured wireless network configured on the router (if that's the right terminology) which I can connect to successfully with the laptop to access the internet. I purchased a Netgear WGPS606 Wireless Printer Server.

My understanding is that this PS can be added to my wireless network and can be used by computers in said network without having to have the printer(s) connected to a dedicated computer or hardwired to the router. Am I totally off base? If I am, just tell me and no need to read further!

If I'm OK so far, here is the situation. I ran the Netgear setup and all was fine -- it sees both printers, printed a test page OK on each, etc., but then when all was said and done I realized I was still connected to the printserver with the ethernet cable. When I disconnect the ethernet cable I have no communication with the PS.

I tried adding the PS to the network using XP's utility and a USB drive but that didn't seem to do anything

Shouldn't I be able to communicate with the printer wirelessly via the router that communicates to the PS?


A:Netgear Wireless Print Server with Linksys Router

Oops! Nevermind

I'm not sure what I did differently the second time around, but PERHAPS it is that I disabled my ZoneAlarm. Anyway, I just went back through the setup wizard with ZA disabled and now both printers are working great in full wireless mode. Rebooted (which re-enabled ZA) just to make sure everything stuck. It did.

FYI for anyone that is curious, neither my HP5510 all-in-one, nor my Brother HL-2040 were among the printers listed in the compatability table from Netgear. I had both printers already installed on the laptop using the manufacturers install discs previously. During the PS setup it recognized the printers "by name" right away, and then when asked to add the printers to the computer it saw them and the drivers installed no problem. Only the print function on the all-in-one works, but that's fine by me. If I'm using it to make photocopies or scanning images, I'm not doing that from another room anyway!!

So, rocky start, but since I bothered to register here, I thought I might as well share a little success!

Have a nice day all!! :grinthumb
