I'm sure this is easy to fix. I've just moved over from aDSL to fibre and set the port forwarding (443) to hit the front-side of my reverse proxy. From an outside connecting working fine, from inside the network the modem UI intercepts the requests, how to I either moved it onto the internal address (192.168.1.254) or disable HTTPS all together for the modems web UI?

Yes - the Edgerouter will be a good fit for this as it supports hairpin NAT.

 

Another option (I think you've got a big network lab if I remember correctly) is to run DNS and DHCP internally and set your DNS entries to the reverse proxy.

The vast majority of "basic" modems and routers don't support hairpin NAT. Anything more advanced such as the Edgerouter does support this.

Thanks for your input. I've bought a EdgeRouter X and running the firmware update now, will provide feedback as I go. I had offloaded DHCP and DNS in preparation for moving from aDSL to Fibre, so in that respect I'm relatively well prepared. The Spark connection settings could still trip me up of course.

Thanks, your tutorial worked a treat, I'm up and running with my internet connection. Been requested to have beer so will work on the port forwarding later today (or maybe tomorrow, depending on how much beer is had)

Finished the configuration for port forwarding. Thanks to @michaelmurfy for your guidance. Once I note in regards to PPPoE (https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=205740&page_no=7), I had to select switch0 for the target, and not a specific ethernet address. If I selected a specific ethernet, it would forward to the inbuilt UI, but with switch0, it landed on the correct server.

 

Thanks again.
