Hi, I have a Linksys WRT160N that I am trying to configure to a ubuntu server (8.10) running apache 2.0. I have been experimenting and decided to restart the apache web server on port 21229. The ubuntu server has a static IP 192.168.1.104. This machine is wired to the router. I manually entered this entry taking the MAC address from the HWaddr field after executing ifconfig.
I then went into the router's "Forwarding a single port" option and redirected external port 21230 to 21229.
From the 2 DHCP machines, I am able to access the Apache Web site using http://192.168.1.104:21229. I now wanted to access the machine 192.168.1.104 from the internet and was surprised to see that I did not see the IP of the DSL modem connected to the router. I always though that the "Status" menu will show that. It did not. Am I doing something totally wrong here? The Internet IP address it showed was 192.168.64.1.
I then did ato get the internet address.
But this is where my problem is. I am not able to access the apache2 web server on 192.168.1.104 using http://:21230. It just sits there....and finally times out.
The Gufw firewall allows port 21229 - and this works when I access the apache2 web server from the 2 other boxes.
Any help on the external access through the router will be appreciated.
