Public IP Redirects To Router Config Page

November 7, 2010 at 23:34:13
Specs: Windows 7
I'm hosting a web server as part of my project, then I'm using no-ip's service to get a free DNS (xxx.no-ip.biz) to resolve connection to my external / private IP. I forwarded certain ports (80, 1923, 9135) to my 'internal' IP address.

The problem is, when I try accessing the Domain name (xxx.no-ip.biz) within LAN, it gives me my router configuration page, which in fact it should work to redirect incoming connection to my web server. However, the Domain is totally unaccessible from outside / WAN. My windows firewall is closed for testing purposes. So I guess my windows won't block any of those ports.

Any hints what caused the problem?

In the routers configuration, turn off the web interface of the router for the remote access from the internet. This should work.

Thanks Paul for the reply, but
If what you meant was the 'Remote Management', I left it unchecked i.e. disable.
I do feel that my problem here is somehow related to:

But I still couldn't find the solution

Ok, so when trying to access the server from inside your LAN, you may have to use either the internal ip address of the server, or you have to add an entry in the hosts file of your computer, where you assign the internal ip address to the external used name.

Hosts file
E.g:
127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.1.100 xxx.no-ip.biz

Save the file and try to access the server by e.g. http://xxx.no-ip.biz, from inside your LAN.

From the internet, you should check, whether the port is really shown as open.

Here a link to an online port scanner, you can use:

First of all, thanks Paul, it did help me to solve my problem
To edit the hosts file, please do refer to:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923947

I finally found that, this problem is up when you have a webserver running in a VirtualMachine inside another OS. In fact, I set up the hosts file inside my UNIX webserver and simply though that might be enough. But all you need is to add another information in the host file for it to refer to.
Thanks
