    Hello,
    I have a WTR45G v5 and 2 boxes. One of em is a webserver running on port 80 (can't change the port cause coldfusion needs to run on port 80).
    Is it possible to set the router so i can browse the webserver from the inet, on port 8080 and still have it running on port 80 ?
    cheers :D

    Not in the GUI, but someone got it working using iptables. See this thread...

    http://www.linksysinfo.org/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=12316&highlight=iptables

    Can't attest to whether it works, since I don't have a need for it myself.

    Just a disclaimer: If your ISP is blocking port 80, they may also have something in your Terms of Service that asks you not to run a web server on your account. Before using the advice here, please verify with your ISP that they are OK with it, otherwise they might shut off your access or whatever their penalty is for ToS violations. You have been warned. Have fun. ;)

    Not with your version 5 since it can't run third party firmware. With HyperWRT or one of the other firmwares you could use iptables to do just that.
