  • How to access from outside

    Hi,

    I have just made some webpages and conecting me from thje inside 192.168.1.1 goes well.
    But what do I have to change/do so that people from the outside can see the webpages?

    I am using WServer 2003. And we have a static IP.

    I am sure it is something small, but I can realize it.

    Thx already,

    DNS needs to know what the external IP address is for your website.

    You will then also need to port forward any required ports through your router.

      wullieb1,

      in the router we have redirected the local IP 192.168.100.1 to the public Static one, also adding a port to it.

      Now the stuff with the DNS, is new to me. I have tried some stuff , but no result I went to the DNS adminitration, click on Properties and then in th tab "re-directing" I added th Static IP below in the list. Is this correctt?

      In the IIS adminitration, the direccion IP is the local one (192.168.100.1) or should it be the Static one? Athought the router is chnaged so that all the traffic true the Static IP using port 80 is directed to the local IP 192.168.100.1

      Any help is welcome to get the page up and running

        Usually you ask your ISP to setup there DNS server with the correct record to point to your web server. They set this up then it propogates through the internet over a period of 36hrs.

        Once propogated everyone should be able to find you site.

        In your router you need to setup the following

        Request for port 80 to the external address of your router to be port forwarded to the internal address of the web server.

        i.e {External:80} ===>> [Internal:80]

        Hope this helps.

          Ok,

          I got that. But at this moment it isnīt necesary that the outside world know to find the site, so I use just the IP.
          I can connect from outside to the Router, The only thing I canīt do is see a page from the outside.

          This is driving me crazy

            Ah got ya.

            Right you can access the page internally with no problems.

            Can you get to your router from an external address??

            Have you port forwarded correctly from internal to external??

            Is your server listening on the correct port number??

            are you tring to accesss the site corectly from the external address?? You should be using http://{ExternalIP}

              Can you get to your router from an external address??

              - Yes, at this moment I am conecting to the router and can configur everything (the webserver is in another town)

              Have you port forwarded correctly from internal to external??
              - I believe so:
              APLICATION: PORT FROM: PROTOCOL: IP ADRESS: PORT TO: ENABLE:
              Webserver 80 BOTH(TCP/UDP) 192.168.100.1 80 YES

              Is your server listening on the correct port number??
              - I belive so, see above

              are you tring to accesss the site corectly from the external address?? You should be using http://{ExternalIP
              - I believe so, I try to conect the next ways:
              http://{IP-STATIC}/web/index.asp
              http://{IP-STATIC}:80/web/index.asp

              So, I can connect to the router, but not the webserver. I tried the checklist of MS(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3233...2120121120120), and have everything installed.

              The webserver works local good (using http://192.168.100.1/web/index.asp

              I am

                Hi wullieb1,

                I have seen to solve the problem.
                I changed the forwarding Port that it listens to port 150 and not 80 and it redirects to port 80.

                a colleague told me that It seems to be that port 80 is blcoked for some reason
                for administrating the router. But it also could be the next thing

                Somewhere in the router setup was a variable saying:

                DHCP Type : DHCP Server
                DHCP Server Enable
                Starting IP Address 192.168.100.[ 100 ]


                Anyway, I can connect me from the outside....... Hopefully somebody can use this information.

                At least all this was educational for me

                Thx again wullieb1, for the support!!!!!

                  As usaula some ISP's will stop all traffic on Port 80.

                  Glad to see you have it sorted.
