Routing issue 871

Unanswered Question
Jun 30th, 2008


I am trying to host a wbesite on a Linux server that sits behind an 871w router. When I try to telnet to the public ip port 80 I get "Could not open connection to the host on port 80" Do I need to add a NAT route or modify the ACL? My config is attached.

Thank you,


I have this problem too.

You will need a NAT statement, what's your public and private IP for your Linux server? You can post a fake public.

Static NAT rule.

static (inside,outside) netmask

ACL (not sure if needed, since you already have internal ACL)

permit tcp any host eq www
