NETGEAR WPN824v3 port forwarding problems

Discussion in 'Network Routers' started by Norman Peelman, May 26, 2008.

  1. My netgear router won't allow me to access my WAN ip (ISP provided)
    address from inside the LAN. I have a web server running on
    and port forwarding set to forward HTTP traffic to that ip. Outside
    access works fine but if I try to access the server (or FTP, etc) from
    inside the LAN I am shown the router login prompt in which case I can
    either log in to the router or cancel out which results in a 401
    Unauthorized Your client does not have permission to get URL
    /cgi-bin/check_hijack.html from this server. The url bar in firefox says:

    obviously the latter part of that url is for the (located on) router but
    why would be trying to get it from my server if I don't authenticate.
    Further, even if I type in: (the address assigned by my ISP) it still does the
    same thing?

    Since outside access works as expected, I know the port forwarding is
    really working... something seems hosed on the LAN side...
