Hi there

 

 

 

I'm with Orcon on a fibre plan and the supplied router is a NetComm Wireless NF18ACV.NC.Vocus-R6B043.EN.

 

I would like to host a publicly accessible web site from a machine that sits on my internal network behind the Orcon router.

 

I need to ability to forward outside requests on port 80 to my internal machine, however when I attempt to set up the forwarding of port 80 I receive the error message of: this port 80 is used to the Broadband Router HTTP server, Please choose other port.

 

"Web Server (HTTP)" is even listed in it's dropdown of pre-configured options!

 

Does any know of a solution for this problem?

 

 

 

Thanking you in advance

 

 

 

Jon

You need to move the admin page port to another port to use port 80.

The better way to do this is enable HTTPS and sit your web server against a let's encrypt SSL cert and use 443 instead.

Unless you absolutely need 80. You can change the web admin port in remote access in the admin page and move it to another port (like 8080)

Edit: Read original post properly (whoops) and this might actually not be the specific problem you're having - worth checking though if you're trying to host a web server. Sorry!

 

Check your port filtering settings in My Orcon - 80 is blocked at the network level, I suspect that's your issue

Thank you so much!! I did not even see the "Services Control" sub-page.
