Umm, this is paid by ratepayers (not taxpayers), and doesn't have
anything to do with broadband services.  If any telco is using
Universal Service Fund moneys to pay for data services I'd like to
hear about it!

Re: run web server behine router


It is a tax. See title 47, Code of Federal Regulations, sections 36,
54, 69.
We pay it since the 30's.

Where is the justification for banning servers on customers' computers?
Answer the question.

It sucks up bandwidth that their pricing models don't charge you for.
Get a different pricing model (ie: business class service) and they
don't care.

The way to get around the COMCAST problem and use their service to be
an ISP is to use ports out of the range of their scanners. Any port
above 100000 should do the trick.

It won't do - the port number is an 16 bit unsigned integer with
a maximum value of 65535.

I'd start attempting with a port above 49152 (0xc000).

Yeah, that'll be well out of the range of anyone's scanners.  8*)

Back to the OP and his original problem.  If it definitely works from
outside without the router, then the router is not doing the right
thing.  Make sure you have the latest firmware, and that you are
pointing at the LAN IP that you think you are.  Better yet, either use
port triggering, or a static LAN IP to ensure that your 'server' can't
inadvertently move.

I'd second this - the following works for me.

1) assign your server PC a static IP number with a high last one - like
192.168.1.200
2) on the router make sure that the IP numbers available for dynamic
dishing out to the other computers in the place do not go as high as
192.168.1.200 - restrict them to maybe 192.168.1.100 and below.
3) set port forwarding on the router for port 80 to 192.168.1.200

That should do it.
