Hi, everyone!

 

 

 

Lately, I've been working on installing an Apache server on a Raspberry Pi 3.

 

Everything went smooth, except... forwarding the ports (HTTP & HTTPS) on my Huawei HG659 modem.

 

Basically, I've got the same result than if I have been doing nothing.

 

 

 

I've spent hours by reading forums, updating the modem's firmware etc. and nothing works. I'm not able to see my server from outside of my network.

 

I really don't understand where the problem is, as the differents ports forwarding settings and even the DMZ seems to make no differences on the final results.

 

I know that is a very common issue with this modem, and I will be happy if someone can help me.

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Mat

Have you paid for a public IP? If not you'll be on the default CGNAT connection which means you don't have a public IP so of course have no ability to have port forwards.

Hi Sbiddle,

 

thank you for this fast answer!

 

No, I haven't paid for a public IP. But I thought that the modem has an IP anyway, and if it's not static, I could use a no-IP service. Am I wrong? 

 

Thanks

You do not have a public IP address - either static or dynamic, so no way to route to it from the internet.

 

You need to ask Bigpipe for a static IP, this will of course also be public, which is what you need.

Aww! Ok, I got it. So I have to think if it's worth it rather than using a web hosting services...

 

Thanks for your answer!
