We have bt router model: BT2700HGV , 2wire, can someone tell me if this router supports this

Scenario is I have 2 webservers and want them to be available publicly , thanks

update: A bit more information;

I attached pictures of my router system information, how did I assign the public IP to my router and to my Web Server. everything seems okay but I cant access to my web server from outside of my network. Firewall log says "Unknown inbound session stopped" as you can see in the picture.

FirewallLog , PublicIPOnRouter , SystemInfo , ClientIPSettings , , ,

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Yes, you can configure port forwarding on that model. The problem you're going to have is that you can't port forward HTTP traffic from a single public ip address to two different internal ip addresses. The possible solutions are:

  1. Obtain another ip address from your ISP.
  2. Run both web sites on the same server and use host headers to differentiate the two.
  3. Run one of the web sites on a port other than port 80.

i have 5 ip address already but dont know how to introduce them to my router – Cem Jan 8 '10 at 17:53
You'll probably need to look at the router's manual to see how to configure it to NAT multiple public ip addresses to multiple private ip addresses. – joeqwerty Jan 8 '10 at 18:22
I put some more info about the situation. manual says, as long as I configure client manually (static IP), i dont need to deal with nat. – Cem Jan 11 '10 at 13:37
It looks like the traffic is getting to the router but the router is blocking it. Can you find a link to an online user guide for your model router? If so, I'll look through it and see if I can figure things out. – joeqwerty Jan 11 '10 at 15:18
this is the manual, also I came across this post on bt forum ,… it seems that everything is OK what im doing. i cant see what im missing. thanks – Cem Jan 11 '10 at 16:28
