IP Going To Default Gateway
Posted 11 November 2005 - 10:00 PM
Is there a way around this problem? Or a step by step userguide to see if I'm missing out any setup steps?
Not a major priority at the moment, just procrastinating (currently on exam study leave)

One last question though, can you only access the website via local host on your own machine or is there a way to use your WAN IP? I remember last time trying to configure Mambo via local host wouldn't load properly (images not showing, not being to submit admin changes via the Mambo admin panel), but other people accessing from my IP could see it perfecfly.

ID Public Port Private Port Port Type Host IP Address
8 80 80 TCP 184.108.40.206 (WAN, can't access)
9 80 80 TCP 192.168.1.173 (DHCP, can access)
Reading up about my router I noticed:
Q. I have set up a server (e.g. a web server) on a machine in my LAN but I can't access it.
A. NAT will not allow you to access your server on it's realworld IP address from within your local area network, you will need to test it either from another location, or via a dialup internet connection.
Is that the problem?

Do it if you haven't, but i do not think thats the problem because people from outside can see but but in-network can't.

Although I did try configuring me network settings as said above, and it worked *wink* The only drawback was that I couldn't access the internet anymore lol. I tried fiddling with the settings more but I'm no network genius, so I went back to my orginal settings.
And I don't think I can disable NAT on my router, I looked through the settings though I couldn't find an option to disable it.
Though I've decided not to worry about not being able to access it with my WAN IP or use any scripts that require an absolute address localhost is groovy Sorry for the fuss And thank you for all the help
Keep up the great work too!
