Network help

I am attempting to set up a personal server on my network. My internet goes into a router and then to the other computers on the network ( 5 of them)

I am using Easy File Sharing web server (I've used it before pretty handy only as internal network server though)

I understand that I need to have it so when people connect to my static IP, the router forwards them to my internal IP of my server.


However, my searches and tests have lead me empty handed. So do we have a networking guy kick'n around here somwhere, we must. Memory serves we are only lacking a doctor!


My router is a belkim

You need to find the "port forwarding" options in your belkin.

If you want a webserver it's port 80. Point that to your internal server IP address.

What brand and model of IP router/firewall do you have? That'll help give more explicit directions.

Lrrpie is probably your best bet for detailed instructions on this one.
One hint though, since you're setting up port forwarding on your router. (an http request to your router gets forwarded to your server's ip address on port xx) You may want to consider using something other than port 80.

You can assign this on most web servers, and it adds another (all be it minimal) layer of security to help keep out the casual snoopers.

Aw, shucks, Steve

I'm more than happy to help you out. Depending upon your ISP they might have port 80 (web traffic) blocked on the inbound. We'll find out soon enough!

Out of curiosity, are you trying to route outside people to a file share on the inside of your firewall? Do you realize that that's not really a good idea? Or are you trying to run a web server? That's a slightly better idea, but Kindred's suggestion of using an alternate port is a good one.

If you can give a bit more detail on what you really hope to accomplish, we can all provide a bit more help in finding the right solution for you. I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything, but I get calls from <cringe>users</cringe> all the time asking "how do I do x" when x is entirely wrong for their needs, but y will work.

My guess would be your "One-to-One NAT" is not setup, it maps your external IP address to an internal one from your network.
