WZR-HP-G300NH and home web server setup
« on: October 10, 2009, 04:55:26 pm »
   

Hello:

I have a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH Ver.1.60 (R6.20/B1.03) router and wanted to setup a local webserver for the computers at our house. Our ISP is Cox (cable). I have installed Apache Web Server and wanted to make it available to the rest of the computers on our home network as well as computers on the Internet.

 

I have setup an account at DynDNS and am able to associate a name with the router IP.

 

I now wanted to route web traffic from the internet IP of the router to one of the computers on network. I have tried to route traffic on TCP port 80 to the Apache Web Server running on another machine, but when I try to access it from the DynDNS name, I get the AirStation administration website. I tried to setup from from the Setup->Internet Games (Port Forwarding) dialog as well as the LAN Config->Port Forwarding page. Neither works.

 

Assuming I can get this to work, how would I associate this port forwarding to a specific computer on my network when the addresses are applied based on which order the machines connect?

 

I am trying to monitor the messages from the router more closely using a syslog viewer. Do you have any recommendations for a free syslog server for Windows which runs as a service?

 

How can I specify one of my computers as being the syslog server when the IP for it changes?

 

Thanks,
Glenn

This router does not support local NAT loopback, so from inside the network, you'll need to use the local host name or local IP address to access the web server.

 

A quick google search showed me Kiwi Syslog Server for Windows ( http://www.kiwisyslog.com/ ). I haven't used this software, and can't exactly recommend it, but it seems like it would do the job.

 

You can set static DHCP entries for client computers in the router's interface: Internet/LAN -> DHCP lease.

Thanks for the suggestions. They worked well!
