Hi folks.

I'm having nightmares tying to get my 630b to behave. yell The network is... is a server running Apache with several domain names on it. is the Huawei HG630b. is my desktop machine.

Anyone on the internet can connect to the server and it all behaves sweetly, which implies I've got port forwarding working fine for external clients. However, if I try to connect to one of the domains hosted on the server, I get the gateway login page; internal clients can't see the domains on the server. Connecting to the server as works fine but, connecting to http://domain.hosted.on. doesn't. cry

So, how do I get the Huawei to pass the requests through correctly? Any ideas would be much appreciated.

The issue you have is your domain is pointed to your router which then routes port 80 to the correct IP.

You're easiest option is to edit the host files on your PC (if its just the one) and point the domain to your servers IP

Thanks AndiB, that seems to work fine for the web but not for mail. I've got a line in the hosts file like this... domainname1 mail.domainname1

When Thunderbird tries to connect to port 110 on mail.domainname1 it gets no mail and I KNOW there's plenty of mail there 'cos webmail works.
