View Full Version : Ports and Pointing... DSE XH1149 Router

30-05-2004, 04:35 PM

I've recently installed this..

Port 80 points to the computer that hosts the files..

How do I make it so that I can make a port (e.g. 2069) point to the routers control panel so it can be accessed remotely?

It would be:, X being a number..

How would I do this?
Through "Virtual Servers"?

Help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks :D

So, what you are looking at doing is accessing the configuration pages remotely?

I haven't tried this myself, but how about under the Miscellaneous Configuration tab, changing the HTTP server port there?

Hi Anson :)

After posting your IP like that, you may wish to block port 80 for the time being as your security is rather loose at the moment :D. I have been able to browse your MySQL database and could of quite easily made changes ...

But didn't of course :p

Please be careful :)

AnsonM, I looked on the DSE help site for you, and saw there was a firmware upgrade, which changed the following on the help page under "Virtual Servers":

DSE Security Enhancements
This router features an internal web server on port 80. Under normal circumstances this port appears open from the WAN (Internet) side Ė however unless you enable Internet access in the firmware, you canít actually gain access to the LAN (network) through this port. Additionally a range of other ports appear closed when tested with Internet port-scanning tools.....

∑ If you intend to run a server that requires access from the Internet on one of the ports we have stealthed, you will need to replace the appropriate Virtual Server Entry.

I applied the Firmware to my router - 1.44 meg download, ensure that your version is the correct one before applying the upgrade, if unsure, don't do it.

It looks like you need to find the setting to allow internet access in the firmware. If you join the NZ ADSL Mailing list ( http://www.unixathome.org/adsl/ ), or just look thru the archives on that page, there is a guy who is from DSE, Chris Day, who is one of the buyers and is good with questions and support for DSE products.

ohhh, and your link still works, so my guess is that your isp number is static (a 222 number)..... maybe a Mod could edit your post to disguise the addy? Email Rob or Bruce if you want this done.

> ohhh, and your link still works,

It isn't again now, my guess is he just opened it again to fiddle with some settings. :) When his IP changes he will be fine again from nosey lurkers :D
