Hi All

Got a quick question:

I am trying to us static NAT to direct port 80 and 443 traffic to Apache which is sitting on the same machine as the filtering. More specifically I am using a php include() function on an external server to grab a php page from my apache server here (specifying the include as http:// which means it should use port 80). I have setup the filter exceptions as specified in Craig Johnson's filtering book, however traffic cannot get through. I have rules setup to allow traffic both ways using the servers external interface IP address. When I disable filters all is well.

The only thing I can think of is that the server itself is sitting behind a small Belkin modem/router, but I have forward both port 80 and 443 to the server's external IP address. Are there any more i need to forward, as the rules i have setup have source ports of 1024-65535 and destination ports of the same on the outboud rule.

The Rules:

Src Interface: Public
Destination Interface Private

protocol: TCP
Src ports: 1024-65535 Dest Ports: 80
Ack bit and stateful filtering: disabled
src address: any address

dest address type: host
ip address:

any ideas appreciated! If i need to supply more information please let me know :)
