Multiple instances of same port forwarding

March 16, 2010 at 16:50:34
Specs: Windows XP
I have a WAN client at a.b.c.d and I need to access a LAN Web Server connected to an IGD. The public IP address of the IGD is 187.x.x.x. How will port forwarding work if the destination source port is the same in both instances?

Source ports are always random ports above 1024 on both windows & unix systems. They are never the same as destination ports. netstat -an will show you that.

I think you meant that the source & destination IPs are the same.

Secondly, if the web server is on the same LAN as your client, you don't use the external IP. Your access is from the LAN side.
