    I found a small bug that I thought I'd ask people about. This is on Thibor 15c, Linksys WRT54GL.

    After the router has been running for a few days, it will drop passthrough connections on Port 80 (set up via Port Redirection to go port 80 external to port 80 on an internal machine)

    Other ports seem to be fine, and its own port 80 (for admin) seems to be fine. Rebooting makes everything come back up again.

    Minor, but very annoying. Thoughts?

    one thing, why are you redirecting port 80 external to 80 internal? surely normal forwarding would suit that purpose better

    well, its because most of my ports are actually redirected and I thought it eaiser to have all the config on the same screen. :)

    But your point is fair; I will try moving that over to the forwarding screen.

    Just a quick followup on this, for the archives:

    It turns out this problem was caused not by a bug in Thibor's code, but by one of my other applications running a server(still not sure exactly what) that thought it was a web server and kept requesting port 80 via the UPnP. The router would give it port 80, and then it would recieve the traffic and not know what to do with it becuase it wasn't really a web server.

    So the solution is just to turn of UPnP, which seems somewhat useless anyway. :)
