Hi guys, i have a small webserver going, however it cnnects to the net through a Belkin wireless router, everytime i attempt to enter the WAN IP, it takes me to the Belkin setup page, is there a way to route through the router, and onto the server..


For example i think i can enter

http://88.194.251.112 (or whatever the WAN ip might be)

and it will go directly to

http://88.194.251.112/192.168.2.2 (of which is the web server)

Thanks (Y)

you need to see if you can set up NAT within the belkin router to translate the outside ip address directly to the inside ip address(the server)....or use port forwarding to do a similar task (not familiar with the belkin router so i can't offer many steps)
