      Re: How to set up port forwarding to an internal web server

      I followed the guide setting the router, I can access the page internally. However the page cannot be accessed external I get the error 404. I recently move to Sky from Virgin and apart from the change in ip on my welcome page on a Freeola server nothing has changed.

      Have sky blocked port 80?

      Re: How to set up port forwarding to an internal web server

      Port 80 is definitely not blocked by Sky.

      EDIT You need to finish your website

      Under Construction
      The site you were trying to reach does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded and configured.


      Please try this site again later. If you still experience the problem, try contacting the Web site administrator.

      Yes

      That's what I see when I point my browser to your IP address

      Re: How to set up port forwarding to an internal web server

      I don't understand why it has not worked on Sky when it was working perfectly well on NTL for 5 years. the webpage structure has not changed only the WAN IP to a Sky one. the router is configured as per the user manual to open port 80. if I enter http://90.197.158.254/aeroreg/temp/showpage.htm it to my browser I see the following The page cannot be displayed The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings. ETC this worked fine upuntil I switched to Sky.

      Re: Webserver not working

      Iím not sure why, particularly as I could see the site internally it failed to be seen from an external source. The bottom line is I deleted the site and restored it from my backup and all is well it is now up and running again. My only conclusion is there was some from of corruption with the site structure. Thanks for all your help.

      Re: Webserver not working

      The original site was almost certainly using host headers. That would explain all the symptoms.
