Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Kamil Anwar and i will do my best to assist you.
Can you tell me what your IP Address is?
You are right it could be that you have already forwarded 80 or it is being used by the router itself.
It is already forwarded to the system with the webserver hosted.
What page are you seeing?
I don't think it is forwarded.
You don't have permission to access /UI on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Which webserver did you download?
Can you send me a screen shot for the port forwarding page of the router?
Also what is the host name at no-ip?
It is Tomcat. There is no password protection. It would appear to be forwarding to the router control panel, not the web server.
If that was the case, then i should have seen the router's page or a pop up requesting username and password to login.
You should be able to go to http://126.96.36.199/home and see the same page as www.danholle.com/home
Can you send me httpd.conf ?
Non-authoritative answer:Name: danholle.comAddress: 188.8.131.52
danholle.com is pointing to a different IP - I see what you mean.
Can you send me httpd.conf please?
danholle.com is a completely different web server. I just happen to have the same config on this machine but cannot see it externally
This is a configuration issue.
It is not configured properly.
Can you tell me how did you set it up? As much details as possible.
I used to have this running on this machine with a DSL2640R router. After a firmware change it stopped working. I contacted my provider and they said the DSL2640R was not supported. (I found others on the TalkTalk forum with similar problems with port forwarding.) Now I have the new DSL3680 and it works fine for normal usage but does not let me specify port forwarding at all for Port 80.
Can you send me a screenshot of the port forwarding page
and the local IP for the computer where you have tomcat installed?
Are you still there?
I am still here
Please scroll down to view my messages.
I tried something with remote management to try to turn it off -- it turned off local management too so I've reset the router back to factory settings and am back now.
Remind me how to send you a screen shot. Windows vista. Some key combination to save screen to a file... can I then paste it here?
Press the Alt key and the Prnt Scrn key on the keyboard.
Then go to paint and press Ctrl + V
Save the image.
Use the attachment sign in this window to attach the saved image.
I am running out of time. It does not look like there is a quick answer here.
I am sorry but there is no quick answer since your configuration is custom and to resolve the issue completely we will need to diagnose it, fix it and test it.
Can you delete this port forwarding temporarily so i can be sure where the router is forwarding to?
Also, when you type 192.168.1.20 on your computer, which page do you see?
192.168.1.20/home = same as danholle.com/home
Port is forwarded correctly.
The settings in the httpd.conf file needs to be changed / checked.
My IP is now 184.108.40.206 (since I reset the modem)
This means, the webserver is redirecting to /UI folder
When i access through the IP Directly
It appears to be routing to the router control panel, not forwarding the port.
If that was the case, then you should not be able to access the webpage locally when you type 192.168.1.20
When I go to http://220.127.116.11/home or http://192.168.1.1/home I get the same error message
192.168.1.1 is the local IP of the router.
192.168.1.20 is the local IP of my PC.
What happens when you go to 192.168.1.20 ?
192.168.1.20/home --> serves up the right content.
That means the port is forwarded correctly. This is not a port forwarding issue.
This is a configuration issue on the web server.
Can you find this file httpd.conf ?
I am running Tomcat, not Apache Web Server
Can you go to C:\Program Files
and tell me the name of the web server directory?
c:\program files\apache software foundation\Tomcat 6.0\
There, one finds the bin, conf, lib, logs, temp, webapps, and work subdirectories
What sort of thing are you looking for?
the configuration file, should be server.xml and web.xml
I still believe we are not getting to the web server at all. Remember that there are multiple PC's on this network and there is nothing to tell the router to talk to this one.
192.168.1.20 - Isn't that the ip of the computer running the webserver?
Okay, I am out of time. I am flying tomorrow and I have many hours of work to do before I go.
We can continue on this when you are back that is not a problem.
Yes it is! But it won't let me forward port 80 to that IP!
So in the router there is nothing which points to 192.168.1.20 in any way right now
How do we suspend this conversation and resume later?
I don't see that as an issue because you can change the port in the configuration file which is what i am looking for
and let tomcat listen on a different port to rule this cause out and fix the issue with resolving names first., then look at the router side to disable 80 for router and enable for the server.
You can leave it as it is and when you come back just login to JustAnswer.com and Click on My Questions
Yes, but how does the router know to forward to 192.168.1.20 and not one of the other 3 machines? There is nothing in the router now that knows about this machine.
Then Click on this question, to continue.
I am assuming that tomcat is configure to listen on 8080 too
Okay. I must go now.
If you disable that forwarding, we will find that out in a 10 seconds.
Port 80 is the default port. It's what gets used when no port is specified. 8080 is tomcat's default port so as not to interfere with any other web server that may be running.
This may be the issue, but need to look at the configuration.
No. I configured this Tomcat instance to listen on 80 instead. As I mentioned, this was working before. Most of the site which is now at danholle.com is on this box. I moved the static content to a web provider and jumped out to the active content pages.
Okay, I must go.
No problem, we can continue when you're back. Have a safe journey.
So I go to justanswer.co.uk when I get back?
