How to open port 80(http/web server) on  Dynalink rta230.

Have tried the following


Port Forwarding

Create the port forwarding rules to allow certain applications or server software to work on your computers if the Internet connection uses NAT.


Application Name

External Packet

Internal Host




IP Address








Where by is my server…

This is not working.


I am using this site :

To check if port 80 is open, then I get connection refused.


So how to I open this port to allow users to access my webserver..

Can any-one try to check if this give correct results

i.e if you got port 80 does it show as open


my setup is as follow


(WAN IP ADDRESS)router192.168.1.1======è

What happens if you access http://localhost off your PC (assuming your computer + server are the same thing).  Try turning off your firewall + antivirus and try that again.

Maybe try accessing from another computer on your network, see if your website comes up then.

Also, make sure the software firewall on that server PC is configured to let port 80 inbound traffic.

Everything else is working fine inside the LAN.
i can see the server using another pc, problem is from the outside world.

How do you allow traffic(on a router) from outside to access a web server.
