    Hi there.

    A few months back I decided to get wireless. I bought a wireless-g (seeing that was the only one in my local store). I setup for my pc.

    I had a few issues with it and I decided to turn it all into a wired network.

    So my setup looks like

    pc1 > modem> router

    ethernet cable from router to pc2

    The internet and filesharing all works fine.


    I'm trying to setup my second pc to be a webserver.

    I've installed:
    DC++ (works on port 411)
    Shoutcast (port 8000)
    Http serv: (port 80)
    ftp: (port 21)

    I can access everything locally but not remotely.

    I've I go to one of those 'what is my ip' websites and try the given ip's they don't seem to work either.

    I've found some options in my router (screen shots attached).

    Can someone guide me as to how to get my software working through the router and be accessable.

    Thank you in advance.

    Here's how to fish:
    For any connection from the internet side to your modem/router, your modem/router needs to know what to do with that request - if it's incoming on port 80, does it just drop it, does it forward it to some PC on your local LAN, or what. If the request comes in on port 21, what to do with the request, or if it comes in on port...

    Search this site, and google for "Port Forwarding" or "Port Range Forwarding".

    Remember that the device that CONTROLS your connection to the internet has to make the port forwarding call. From your drawing above "pc1 > modem> router", it seems as if your modem is connected to the internet, and is also controlling the internet connection, so you most likely have to do the port forwarding on the modem.
