  • Running Apache behind a B-Focus 270 router

    I had Apache webserver running from my homecomputer with a ECI ADSL modem . Worked like a charm but since the damn thing was a USB modem I couldn't have internet on my homenetwork . Now I have upgraded to a B-Focus 270 router and I can access the internet from the loo if I want but Apache is dead . Not so much as dead but more like hijacked . The router traps all requests to my IP on port 80 by giving me the interface to log onto to the router . I can access my webpage through localhost and I believe if I were to access it on some other port I should be able to do it but I am not to keen to do that . Question is if I can make the router interface to vacate port 80 and go elsewhere .
    I am on Win2k , SP4 and the firmware version for the router is 20040123 , if that has any bearings .

    Made me laugh

    Check your router and you should be able to forward port 80 to your PC running apache web server. Just check the settings of your router

      Or: why not run Apache on a different port?

        Well accessing the internet from the loo was a bit of a personal joke . Freind of mine has his server sitting on the top shelf in the loo since he couldn't find any place for it anywhere , accesses it through Radmin .

        Now why not run apache on another port is because I don't want people tp access www.123.com:8080 instead of www.123.com . Just finincky I guess but there it is .

        Now as for Michael's suggestion to
        forward port 80 to your PC running apache web server
        I confess to being a newbie . I understand the literal meaning of what he says but I have no clue as to how to implement it . It could be possible that the GUI interface doesn't support it and maybe only if I telnet and do it by hand but it is a bit out of my league .
        Will keep you guys posted on any further developments.

          Thought I would just bump this up because I have had no luck in figuring out how to make it work . If someone knows anything please let me know . Thanks .
