Hey guys!

I'm running a GUI for utorrent through the internet by opening a specific port (in the 1000-1500 range) on the WebGUI tool inside utorrent, and then opening the port (TCP and UDP just to be sure) on my WAG320N router.

 It worked for like a week. Now it doesn't, the browser just kinda hangs trying to load the page. Like it knows it's there but my computer isn't serving up it's part of the deal.

I did a tracert and it times out coming back into the xnet servers 58.28.**.** so I'm thinking maybe xnet are blocking my DynDNS set up? Is this possible? Am i missing something?

Any help would be awesome!

Cheers!

Are you using DynDNS to resolve DNS? Why?

Using third party DNS most of the times will break things if your ISP uses a transparent proxy and your content is being sourced from a CDN for example.

I would guess he's using it to keep up with his dynamic IP. Presumably his router updates dyndns when IP changes and he can use blah.dyndns.org for his webUI.  How would you do it?

To answer the OPs question, check your IP at home and make sure the router is correctly updating your dyndns account.  I had some problems with mine once upon a time.

Oh, reading again now it makes sense.

It sounds more like the router is blocking it, or DynDNS hasn't been updated. Also worth asking if the PC running the torrent client is on a dynamic or static IP - if it's dynamic and it has changed addresses inside the LAN then it won't work either.

Yeah woh sorry, vital details left out!

The PC running the webui has a static IP inside my home network, with the ports opened on the router specifically for that IP (i tried it on a DMZ too though)

The WAG320N has a built in DynDNS updater, and it says it's updated and sweet, and I have pressed the manually update button too, but my IP hasn't changed so it thinks it's fine. 

I swear I didn't change anything too.. just worked one week, not the next.. 

Here is a copy of the tracert I did..

Ugh. My static IP (for the PC) inside the router had changed.. So my open ports were pointing to the wrong place..

Talking helps ^__^

Thanks for your time guys!

Because usually ports below 1024 are used for known protocols. And your PC is just serving up a web page really...
