We are trying to solve what should be a trivial problem! We have a DrayTek Vigor 2820 series ADSL router/firewall and we need to forward port 80 to a web-server.
The box is connected to it's adsl line correctly, and we can access the internet outbound.
I have a PC behind the box, running IIS with no software firewall etc... I can web browse to the pc internally, and get the IIS welcome page. The PC has no routes, and the Vigor is it's default gateway.
I have a port forward configured on the Vigor as per their instructions, to forward port 80 on the public IP address to port 80 on this internal PC.
External management of the router (which would otherwise use port 80) is disabled.
When I try to browse to the port forward via a seperate connection, the page doesn't display.
If I examine the syslog output from the vigor, I see it performing a virtual server port forward operation as I have requested, however, from running wireshark on the target PC, the request never arrives.
I have tried three different versions of firmware, as I found various reports about NAT being broken in one version or another...
Does anybody have this functionality working using one of these boxes?? I have seen several threads online saying they had problems with it, but I haven't found a solution. I can't imagine that this function is faulty in 3 versions of the o/s, so I must be missing something!!
