      Sky / Netgear V2 Problem

      This is a strange problem i will explain as well as i can, its similar to other posts but i am positive it doesnt match exactly.

      First off i am using the new Netgear router from sky, the small dark grey/black model. I believe its called the DG934. Anyway i have had my apache server setup for some time, but after switching to sky, mapping the port in the new router and forgetting about it for a day or 2, a friend phoned to say he couldnt access my web server. I checked the port maps, over my lan its fine but from the outside world its no good, i have checked this from a remote server i have access to on another connection. I decided to log the traffic incoming on port 80 to make sure the router was receiving the query. Heres a log :-

      Wed, 2007-12-19 21:47:25 - TCP Packet - Source:xxx.xxx.148.210,4989 Destination:90.205.23.42,80 - [HTTP rule match]
      Wed, 2007-12-19 21:48:20 - TCP Packet - Source:xxx.xxx.148.210,2929 Destination:90.205.23.42,80 - [HTTP rule match]
      Wed, 2007-12-19 21:57:43 - TCP Packet - Source:xxx.xxx.128.126,2018 Destination:90.205.23.42,80 - [HTTP rule match]

      Wed, 2007-12-19 22:00:08 - TCP Packet - Source:xxx.xxx.128.126,2712 Destination:90.205.23.42,80 - [HTTP rule match]
      Wed, 2007-12-19 22:10:23 - TCP Packet - Source:xxx.xxx.252.112,33131 Destination:90.205.23.42,80 - [HTTP rule match]
      Wed, 2007-12-19 22:11:20 - Administrator login successful - IP:10.0.0.3
      Wed, 2007-12-19 22:14:02 - TCP Packet - Source:xxx.xxx.128.126,2951 Destination:90.205.23.42,80 - [HTTP rule match]


      As you can see the router is getting the incoming requests from the web but it doesnt actually get to my server, the rule is set, my server is 10.0.0.1 and thats the forwarding ip in the rule. (router 10.0.0.2, other pc's 3, 4, 5 etc)

      This works fine from the lan using any one of my other pc's but through this router it just doesnt seem to reach apache server.

      I dont have another router to connect to sky with as i dont have my user/pass. A friend a few streets away has a netgear dg834gt, the white one, and that forwards his just fine.

      http://ballz.kicks-ass.net is my dns, i uploaded a php script on a fresh install, i can see it from here, but still not from web.

      Any ideas?

      Re: Sky / Netgear V2 Problem

      On my V1 Sky router, log entries for incoming connections to my ssh server list the local IP address as the destination address for the "rule match" log entry. Yours is showing the public IP address (i.e., 90.205.23.42 rather than 10.0.0.1).

      No offence, like, but are you sure you typed the right address into the LAN Server address box when you created the incoming rule?

      Edit: the other thing I thought of is, is do you have remote management enabled on your router. That might confuse the port forwarding rules as it'll be forwarding on port 80 but also listening on port 80. Normally, the forwarding would take precedence, but the two things together might confuse the V2 router and probably isn't a combination that was thoroughly tested by Sky or Netgear.

      Re: Sky / Netgear V2 Problem

      no, i have the correct ip in the box, i looked at that and thought it was weird, seems there may be a bug in the v2 netgear, although it forwards other ports fine. I checked the remote admin options, its disabled and the default port is 8080 anyway, so that cant be the problem, can someone else open there port 80 and see what they get. Its rather frustrating considering the server worked fine before the new router, i have had netgear routers before and have always had no trouble setting them up. the rule i have added is HTTP forwarded to lan ip 10.0.0.1. My router is 10.0.0.2 and other pc's in the house use numbers above 2. Every pc is setup manually with assigned lan ip's.

      Everything works fine apart from the HTTP service :s

      Can someone please test a new netgear router with port 80, i have reset the router to defaults and remapped all my ports, all my other stuff works fine apart from port 80. This is very annoying.
