Router Configuration - Netgear FVS124G RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having real problems getting my WHS to run through a Netgear FVS124G router.  Has anybody else managed this and if so what config did you use?  It runs fine through other Netgear routers but I need this one.

  • What for problems do you have?
    Did you try to access your server from outside of your network? Not each router supports loopback connections from within your network via the Internet back to within your network, so your system could work perfectly as it should, but you need to check it from another location.
    If this is not the case, give more details. (Did you configure port forwarding manually or let WHS try to do this via UPnP configuration?)

    Things to check would be stuff like:
    Can you reach your WHS via http://servername from inhouse?
    Is the IP adress to which you configured port forwarding the current internal IP address of your WHS?
    If you ping yourdomainname.homeserver.com, does it resolve to the correct external IP address of your router?
    Does your router establish a direct Internet connection or is a separate DSL modem involved?

    Best greetings from Germany
