port forwarding not working

Post by dieselfish » Fri Apr 22, 2011 3:37 pm

My system is Modem----->Telo hub--->Switch---->Sever. I have a Domain name that is using a port 80 redirect to port 8080.
I have Telo set for requests for port 8080 to forward to my server IP address 192.168.xxx.xxx . I have checked from outside and the browser gets to the Telo address 127.xxx.xx.xx and times out. I have used canyouseeme.org and it says I'm not brodcasting, or it cant see it. So at this point I dont know why Telo will not forward?

There is no reason to x out parts of your private IP addresses. Everyone in the country is using the same addresses.
They are not routable on the internet. No one can access them.
I don't see a router in the mix so where did the 192.168 server IP address come from?
You also have the Telo IP address wrong. It's 172.27.35.1.
The Telo will issue IP addresses in the 172.27.35.x subnet. Your server's IP address must be in the same subnet.
You need to forward port 8080 to the 172.27.35.x IP address that your server pulls from the Telo.

Is that "switch" actually a router? If it is, everything I just said is wrong.

Ok, to explain the x's, I felt that the numbers were inconsequential, so why put them. I know its private.
Yes I put the Telo address wrong, the address is 107.25.35.xxx. and the home port is 192.168.1.1.
My switch is a Netgear GS724TP. Not using a router.

I had it setup with Cable modem--->Router---->Switch---->Telo, and the wesite was working, but the Telo was cutting out with internet use. I am not knowledgeable enough to use Qos on the Netgear switch.

The server address 192.168.1.80 which is assigned by the Telo. The port 8080 is forwarded to it.

Are you testing from outside of your network?
The Telo does not do loopback so you can't connect to your external address from inside of your network.

Have you tried

http://107.25.35.xxx:8080

from outside of your network to make sure it's not a domain name translation problem?

Yes, cant hit it from outside. I can hit it inside by using the server's Ip address.
Do you mean Sitename:8080 ?

Yeah that doesnt work, The web url shows nothing but the external OOMA address of 107.whatever. IT seems like the TELO is just not forwarding.

No I did not. I want you to use your actual external IP address to bypass the DNS lookup and the 80 to 8080 port translation that occurs with your site name.

You can determine what your current external IP address is by going to

http://www.whatismyip.com

from inside of your network.

I'm convinced the OOMA is not forwarding.
