Author Topic: Configure my router to make my website accessible from the internet  (Read 2972 times)

I have IIS running in a machine inside my network and I would like to make is visible to the world wide web.
To do that, I created a website in the port 8787, which is accessible when the user types in the browser. Of course it works only when the user is inside my network.
(IIS running over windows server 2008 OS)

Now I want to make it visible to the WWW, so I created a rule to make a port forwarding to it:
I went to: Advanced > Virtual Servers and created a rule with the given information:

Name: website
private ip:
protocol: both
private port: 8787
public port: 8787
Schedule: always

This rule created automatically a firewall rule

Source: WAN *
Destination: LAN Protocol: * Port range:8787

Unfortunately it isn't enough, if I type myPublicIp:8787  I can't access the website because I either get "connection reset" error or a timeout.

I pluged my computer directly in my modem and it worked perfectly.

To make a test, I tried to enable the router remote administration on the port 10001. It didn't work.

Do I have to do something else?

ps: my wireless router is a dlink di-524, I am writing this in this forum because I couldn't find the one related to my router...

You might need to use Virtual Server.
