My original network setup was Modem (Scientific Atlanta 2100) > Telo > Router (Linksys E1000). I have a Linksys EG005W switch connected to the router to provide additional network ports for devices in my home entertainment unit, one of which is the WHS box. This setup created two complications which I could not figure out, and ultimately led me to decide to change to a Modem > Router > Telo setup:
- When I tried to configure RWA on the server, I got an error message about there being multiple routing devices on my network and that configuration could not be completed. It took me a while to figure out that the Telo has routing capability.
- The bigger concern for me, though, was that with the Telo in front, entering my public IP address would cause the Telo setup page to load, and I could not figure out how to stop that from happening (because, of course, any determined hacker who knew my public IP could then mess around on my network with just a few keystrokes).
Secondly, once I switched my network setup to Modem > Router > Telo, this obviously prevented me from being able to load the Telo setup page (since nothing was connected to the Home port). I've read on other threads on these boards that it's possible to set up access to Telo setup by doing some forwarding with the MAC address and whatnot, but 1) None of what I read was particularly crystal-clear, 2) except for the fact that it involved forwarding port 80 on my router to a particular address, which I can't do because I need to forward port 80 to the server. Is there a way to get Telo to broadcast the setup page on a different port, and regardless of whether or not it is or not possible, can someone spell out the process to view the Telo setup page without connecting to the Home port? (I have given my Telo a static IP outside of my router's DHCP range, but I'm not sure how to proceed from there.)
