Help Resolving External IP to Internal IP

Hi guys,

I’m using openSUSE11.1 on my box. I’ve got my NetComm router port forwarding 2871 to web server. Sadly, when I try to access my internal IP, it just brings up the login page for my router.

My box:
Apache listens on port 80

Port forwards 2871 to

External IP

I’ve tried accessing and it just says page not found.

I’m told I might be able to edit my /etc/hosts file to help with this? I tried to, but no success. This is how my hosts file looks. linux localhost.localdomain localhost localhost localhost

special IPv6 addresses

::1 localhost ipv6-localhost ipv6-loopback

fe00::0 ipv6-localnet

ff00::0 ipv6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ipv6-allnodes
ff02::2 ipv6-allrouters
ff02::3 ipv6-allhosts linux-d3vb

Any suggestions please?


Nevermind, seems like what I really want is NAT. I’m not going to go do that, so I’ll just deal with it.

Also, make sure that your router configuration can not be accessed from the external interface. It is risky. (There must be some setting for this).
