Port Forwarding

I hope someone can advise me on this...

I've got a Cisco 877 router. I've got a static, public IP address at this site.

All is working just fine, but...

I'll need to connect to a computer on the LAN side from anywhere in the world, which is not really a biggie.

Question is, how do I do this? I'll be connecting to this devise using Web GUI, HTTPS.

I'll have to enter the public IP to access the router, but from here, I just don't have a clue how to get to the device on the LAN side.

I'm thinking port forwarding, but I really don't know where to start with this or even if this is the solution.

Please help...

First off we'd need to know what port the Web GUI uses.. I'll assume it uses port 8080, so obviously change that value to your value in the configuration.

I will also assume NAT is working as you say "All is working just fine"

You will need to implement the following command. I'll also assume your ADSL interface is Dialer1. is the local machine you need to access. This will need to be assigned the same IP everytime via DHCP or you can set it statically.

ip nat inside source static tcp 8080 interface Dialer1 8080

That should set up port forwarding for you.

Let me know how you get on.
