I am trying to run a webserver but my IP is redirecting to my router and I do not know how to fix this.

RE: Windstream FAST1704

You need to provide more information! Your description tells us nothing...


RE: Windstream FAST1704

Okay this is what I was told to do.

"when you using your IP address and your router is responding and not the service you have configured within the network, this is because the Remote Connection sometimes call Remote Administration feature is active on the router.

This Remote Administration appears to be active and using port 80 as the connection port it functions on. At this time your only available option would be to enter the router locate this feature and either disable the service or alter the port number it uses to answer remote request on."

RE: Windstream FAST1704

eh - wot - pardon!

deciphering the above - hopefully correctly I think it means you have to disable remote administration on your router and set up your webserver to be in the DMZ of your router. There should be a section in your routers web interface where you can declare your webservers local IP address to be in the DMZ.

Effectively any IP address declared as DMZ is not translated - so your webservers address effectively becomes your routers internet IP address.

For example:-

If your router has


making a DMZ makes the webservers IP effectively by disabling NAT for that IP

What are the model numbers of your router and DSL box?

Do your have static IP addresses?

Have you read the documentation of your equipment?
