Publishing Issue

Attempting the seemingly simple task of publishing ports 80 and 443 to a web server device on my LAN through a 1700 series.

used the access-list permit...etc etc command and these items show up in the list of ACL entries, however, traffic doesn't seem to be flowing. Does anyone have any advice, I must be missing something like binding this to an interface or actually enabling the rule.


Re: Publishing Issue

When you say "publishing ports 80 and 443 to a web server device" what do you mean?

Do you mean that you want to permit TCP port 80 and 443 traffic to a particular web server?

If so, this traffic should already be permitted on through your Cisco 1700 router unless you have configured and applied an access-list on the router this is currently blocking it.

Is there an existing access-list in place on the router?

To check you can run the following command:

show ip access-list

And if so, what does the access-list look like and which port is it applied to?

To check which port the access-list is currently applied to examine the interface configuration using the "show run" command and look for interfaces that containing an "access-group" configuration.

Re: Publishing Issue

If that is the case, there must be a port forwarding component. Even if all ports are opened, somehow traffic must be directed to a specific host on the trust side..
