Portforwarding to Tomato-Webinterface

    I connected a DSL-Modem-Router in front of my Linksys WRT54GL (Tomato 1.19).
    This new DSL-Modem-Router has the former IP-Adress of my Linksys and the Linksys works only as a AP with DHCP. Inside my network I can access the Webinterface of my Linksys without any problems. I added a portforwarding to my DSL-Modem-Router to forward port 8080 to the ip of my Linksys (Port 80). But this doesn`t work in any way. I can´t get any access from the outside to my Linksys-Admininterface.

    Any help would be appriciated.

    While at home, log into your router, click "Administration" and change the pulldown for "Remote Administration" from Disabled to "HTTP" or "HTTPS" (near the top of the page). Please note that anyone can start bruteforce attacking your router on port 8080 (or whatever port you define) and may be able to gain access to your router if you don't have a strong password.

    I recommend using SSH with public key authentication running open to all IPs. This way you MUST have the private key in order to log in, and no amount of brute force attacks (well, within reason) will allow unauthorized access to your router. I'm working on how to enable and disable the HTTP web config interface from SSH command line, and though I can do it with a router reboot, I'm trying to figure out how to do it without rebooting.

    thanks for your reply, but "Remote Administration" is already enabled. When I operated my Linksys standalone, I used this feature to logon from external adresses, but now it does not work anymore, although I created a port forwarding to Port 8080 on my new DSL-Modemrouter.
    Any other hints?
    Kind regards

    Sounds like it might be an issue with the forward set up on your all in one DSL box; I'd probably have a computer spoof the Tomato's IP, and run NetCat on port 8080 to see if requests are actually making it through the gateway box...
