Re: Huawei HG633 - TalkTalk Router

In reply to a post by Michael_Chare:
I use port forwarding and translation to access web sites on my local lan. The web sites on my lan have fixed IP addresses, and I set my router to translate from some 5 digit port number to port 80. All the domestic routers I have seen will do this.

Hi,

Yes, in the router I have given every connected device a name that reflects its operation, my smartphone, samknows router, downstairs_PC, Upstairs_PC etc, saves memorising IP addresses. That way I can simply select the right device from a drop down menu. I setup portforwarding using this method.

I have also setup a static IP for the device thats acts as a static webserver.

The only thing I can think of, is the router is somehow hardwired to prevent incoming port requests. I have read this is very common with 'domestic' plans. Quite what they gain from it, defies my logic.

It is this simple....

If the remote management is turned on and listening then incoming port 80 traffic will hit that and not get port forwarded, turning off remote management is the usual fix, but if ever fault finding with TalkTalk support you might find they want it turned back on.

Then it is time to shed the fat controller and seek out another ISP and router that does what I want, what I pay for. smile

I use port translation. When my router sees a request for port 54321 it knows to send it to a particular ip address on my home network and port 80. I have never seen a domestic router that can not do this.

If my public DNS name is me.xyz.com and my web server has an address of 192.168.1.123 then

http://me.xyz.com:54321 goes to http://192.168.1.123:80

In terms of port translation there are some that cannot, but don't recall models.

In this posters case, they've been shown how to turn off remote management that will then allow the port forwarding to work.

To confirm and put your mind at rest, remote management is not enabled by default.

Strange you say that, but as I have said, I didn't even relate that portion of the menu system, except to reboot the router or do ping tests. TalkTalk support have several times installed firmware updates on my router and even checked settings, clearly this is a default that was set before shipment to allow them to do this.

They donít enable the router interface over port 80 by default. Just no.

They can remotely update your router and this is done over TR069.

This is known as enhanced remote management and is different to having the router interface open over port 80.
