Thread: firewall config

  1. firewall config

    i have a Firebox® X Edge E-Series router i just installed. i have no
    problems getting out to the internet after setting up the box. i
    can't seem to figure out the incoming connections for rdp and http.
    i've opened port 80 and directed the traffic to my webserver (vista
    business iis 7.0) and port 3389. the browser says my webpage can not
    be found. anything i missed?

    What firewall rules did you create to map external to internal?

    Are you using the browser inside the network to try and connect to your
    PUBLIC DNS name for the server?

    Can you connect to the IIS from inside the lan?

    Did you change the firewall on your VISTA WORKSTATION - as Vista is NOT
    A SERVER by any means.

    One thing that may or may not be applicable: I just went through a
    similar situation where I was trying to set up my home router to pass
    incoming traffic to test out a website I was writing. After spending
    several days trying different router rules, I finally called Verizon
    Tech Support (I have FiOS, and they supplied the router, though they
    don't manufacture it). After dancing around with several tech support
    people who didn't want to be helpful, one of them made the comment,
    "Oh, we block incoming traffic on port 80. You have to have a business
    account for that."

    I hope you took the consequence and left them.

    I wish! Unfortunately, at my house, they're the only game in town.
    For testing purposes, I accessed the server with an alternate port
    number.

    jonathan,

    I don't know where this thread is going to .. but for your issue.
    there are some common issues to look in to before going
    to have a live server inside your network from internet.

    1. Internal Routing for the Internal server
    2. External routing for the public IP.
    3. Static NAT on the router for translating internal to external.
    4. If it is port based redirection then you need to add PORT also in
    NAT command.
    5. Check whether the webserver is communicating internally properly or
    not?
