Security / Firewalls :: Access Via Localhost Works But Through External IP Doesn't
May 15, 2011
I need remote access to certain programs on my home PC but I just cannot get it to work.
When I set the programs port preferences (i.e. port 8087), I can connect with"127.0.0.1:8087" and webcamXP work fine. But when I replace the localhost with my external IP (lets say 126.96.36.199, so that would be "http://188.8.131.52:8087".I tried port forwarding: I have added the port to my NAT in the router's setting so it should be fine, but it is not (numbers are fictual of course):
external port start 8085,
external port end 8089,
internal port start 8085,
internal port end 8089,
server IP address 192.168.1.215)
I also tried disabling AVG Internet Security 2011's firewall temporarily just to check it it was blocking it, but got the same result.I checked if Windows own firewall was on, but it is off.I cannot find any setting in the router's own configuration screen to disable any build in (router's) firewall (if it has any).

I'm trying to get my crappy desktop (with Windows XP) to be a web server. When I go to localhost it displays the website just fine, but when I go to the external IP on another computer it displays "mikrotik routeros 4.11 configuration page". I've forwarded port 80 and disabled my firewall.
Port forwarding (not sure if I did it right) [URL] microtik page that is displayed [URL]
I am trying to figure out how to give computers that connect to my LAN limited access. I have heard that some viruses, though rare, may travel through the network and infect all computers on the network. I want to prevent this. Is there any way to give computers connected to my network strict access to only the internet to prevent viruses or any other harmful attacks?
I've created a hostname & account with [url].... for my vpn setup.It was working fine until 2 days back. owa was accesible and configured MS Exchange on iPhones.
Suddenly it stopped working.The updation of IP from ISP is happening @ chnageip.com site, but when we ping the hostname, it is not resolving to new ip and is not pinging.Our users outside the coporate's internal network is unable to access.
I configured a dynamic vpn(easy vpn) in a cisco isr. But the vpn clients cannot access any of the lan devices. VPN pool is 10.0.0.1- 10.0.0.20 & internal netwrk add is 172.17.x.x. I tried to disable zone based firewall but no resultout[CODE]
I installed Comodo Firewall today, and I couldn't access my Internet from then. I actually liked it's UI and all and want to keep it. The only something that I felt that might be causing the problem is "Use Comodo Secure DNS Server"? Is it likely the reason to be the cause of the problem?
I'm having some problems with a sonicwall pro2040. The problem is this: I can access the sonicwall remotely, and I can ssh into the sonicwall and ping various websites, and get replies, but my connected PCs (Connected by the LAN port) have no internet access. I have never set up a sonicwall before this one, and I feel like there is something I may be missing. Do Sonicwall devices block WAN access by default? Do I need to configure the default route?
I am running a Kodak all in one printer through a Billion 7800n router. The desktop computer running Vista is hard wired and the portable running Windows 7 is wireless to the router. The Printer is hard wired to the Billion router. Where are running Norton 360 on both computers. Everything was running fine until two weeks ago and we get the error that the firewall is stopping access from both computers. I have tried turning off Norton but no effect so I assume it has something to do with the firewall on the Billion 7800n router? Why stop now after several weeks of working fine after setup?
Previously we had no problem with remote users connecting via VPN but recently they can't connect and i've checked the firewall and it shows the errors (see attached jpeg) but I'm not sure what it all means.
So, I have this router at home a WRT150N. I put in access restrictions so my siblings won't stray onto unwanted pages.I enabled SPI Firewall Protection and what do you know, it worked. The next day though, we didn't have an internet connection.I checked everything with the modem (power cycles, etc.) and then I tried the router. Upon disabling SPI Firewall Protection, the internet connection came back.I tested it yet again, to see if it really was the SPI. Enabled and bam, no internet access again. I made sure to select "Allow" in the Access Restrictions for "Internet access during selected days and hours" making sure also that "Everyday" and "24 Hours" are selected.Now my question is, what do I need to do in order to enable my Access Restrictions without having to lose internet connection via the SPI Firewall?
Is it true that the FCC is investigating the Pogo game site because of poor security? Is Java the cause of this problem?I'm very leery of getting on the Pogo site because I've been told that my computer could get a virus and crash.
I'm new to IT, and have been put in charge of managing our servers hile my boss is on vacation.We currently have a Sonicwall Network Security Appliance that handles our Firewall/VPN and have web content filtering set in place.I have a user who belongs to 2 CFS policy groups that we have set up. I've double checked with Active Directory, and he is a member of both groups.
This person SHOULD have access to Job searches/ and Restaurants,but receives a "content blocked" message on his browser.It appears to me that the settings in Sonicwall are correct, as well with AD member groups.
I am trying to connect to a Security-enabled wireless netowork. I have the key. My problem is that I can't seem to figure out how to enter it. When I try to connect I open the "view available networks"window. I see the network name and it shows a strong signal (all 5 green bars).
So I am working on a website with MySQL/PHP that I have been developing on my Linux box. I wanted to show a friend my progress so I temporarily opened up port 80. So he was able to just type in my public IP and it brought him to my localhost index.
My question is, when I type in my IP address in the URL bar, does the web browser automatically just assume port 80? What happens if I want to have 2 different servers from the same local network and one is running through port 80 and the other is running through port 90? In this case, would I have to type ":90" to access the machine running on port 90?
I have a customer that wants to purchase an ASA 5510 security plus to terminate client VPN access for an external support team. The customer claims to want URL content filtering/proxy which leads me to suggest a CSC SSM 20 plus module. But upon further conversation, he mentioned wanting IPS. In this case, the customer does not seem to know the difference between the URL content filter/proxy and the IPS and uses both terms interchangably.
1. What would you suggest in your expert opinion would be the best module to get for this customer? IPS or CSC
2. If I go with the CSC module, where can I find good documentation on how to configure it and get it up to date?
3. does the CSC module provide any web proxy functionality?
I just recently bought a Telewell Wlan AP wireless access point and my problem is that I can't connect to the internet with Lan, hence can't get connection on my desktop. My laptop however works fine with wlan.
There's a wall socket which connects to a bigger student local network, I can connect my desktop to it directly and it works so there seems to be nothing wrong with my computer. I've had 2 routers before this, another Telewell that worked flawlessly and a Buffalo that cut the connection every now and then but didn't have this kind of problem.
I have the router plugged into the wall, set to get a dynamic ip (as it should be) and it does find Wan-side ip-address and dns-servers, as I could connect through wifi. So there doesn't seem to be a problem with that either. But for some reason Lan doesn't work. I can access the router through Lan, dhcp is on and I can see my desktop on the routers client list.
I opened my iTunes program today and noticed a roommate's MP3 files were picked up on my network. I think the name of the program is Rocket Tube MP3. Anyway, I came on here because our computers use a Wi-Fi internet connection and I was wondering how much of my web activity (history, cookies, temporary files, etc) he could see from my laptop if his computer was a desktop downstairs. He's very tech-savvy (a former IT guy) and I don't want him snooping through my personal records.
We are a non-profit organization that is heavily reliant on interns that use their own laptops a lot here. My concern is they come in and connect to our wireless network with no supervision or anything else. I am worried they will introduce a virus, trojan, or something to our network. What the best way to keep them from introducing unwanted malware from a thumb drive, virus in email, or something to that effect shy of standing over them while they install and run an antivirus software?
I have problem with the Lan-to-Lan VPN tunnel.the VPN working fines since 9 months ago without any problems.Suddenly got the problem!,In last two days we faced problem the VPN down.in first time the problem in phase-2.. but after that in phase-1... in latest no data packet received to their side.
I am looking for some resources on what steps would be involved in configuring a Cisco ASA 5500 when obtaining a new ISP. Since our static IP will be changing with the new ISP, just need to know what configurations changes will need to take place. We currently have a working config with DSL, but are switching to cable. We are using a DMZ configuration, and are going to try using ASDM first since that should be easier
There are three Win 7 laptops on the LAN trying to connect to the ASA5500 Firewall. They generate a Severity Level 3 alert and try the same port three times then move to the next numerical port and try that three times. Is this a malicious Hack.

I'm working with Cisco ASDM 6.1 for pix. I want some of ip addresses are not shunned thus provide a list of addresses which should not be shunned in threat detection, but some of ip addresses are shunned yet.
