Subject Re: [users@httpd] apache won't work behind NAT router?
Date Sun, 14 Mar 2004 14:33:46 GMT
Well, I had the same problem with LinkSys.  The router would get confused 
when testing from the same machine as the server.  When calling LinkSys 
they were in total denial and all they could offer was "While holding down 
the red reset button, plug in the power...".

The top-rated router from 
Zyxel 
http://www.zyxel.com/product/model.php?indexcate=1022044503&indexcate1=&indexFlagvalue=1021873683

does everything you could wish, up to and including VPN.  The Zywall 10 is 
a tremendous product and is configurable by port in every mode.  Even 
includes controls for DYDNS.

You can but one on Ebay for ??, Current bid is $61.  Then you update the 
firmware and you're good to go. As the unit has 1 WAN and ! LAN port, 
you'll need a cheap switch behind it to distribute to all your 
machines.  You can get a 4-port switch new for about $30.

Good luck.  It's a pain using these cruddy routers.  <snip> LinkSys are you 
listening? </snip>.
