    How to get Photo Album viewable via Internet


    I have enabled the default photo album and I am able to browse it from LAN using . However when I tried to assess the photo album from the WAN using http://58.xx.xx.xx address, it is always returning "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error.

    I have checked the port forwarding in the router and there is an entry mapping port 80 from WAN to added automatically after I enabled the photo album.

    Is there any other steps which I missed to get the photo album working?

    Are there any alternative photo package that can be installed in 700ge?

    If the three lines below are all present, then you should be able to view your web content on port WAN port 80:

    From 'iptables -n -t nat --list':

    DNAT tcp -- <your ip> tcp dpt:80 to:

    You said this one was already present...

    From 'iptables -n --list':

    Chain INPUT
    ACCEPT tcp -- tcp dpt:8081

    Chain FORWARD
    ACCEPT tcp -- tcp dpt:8081

    - K.C.

    I have executed the following iptables command and here's the output:

    # iptables -n -t nat --list
    DNAT tcp -- xx.xx.xx.xx tcp dpt:80 to:

    # iptables -n --list
    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    ACCEPT tcp -- tcp dpt:8081

    Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
    There is no entry that reference ip addresss under this section.

    There seem to be a missing line in my configuration. How can I configure that missing line into the router? THanks

    Try this as root:

    iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp --dport 8081 -j ACCEPT

    I have a little script tucked into the bottom of my rc.local, outside of the clause that checks to see it it's already been run, that inserts a similar line into my iptables config to enable ssh over the wan. You'll definitely have to tweak it a little bit, but maybe it can help:


    lines=`/usr/sbin/iptables --list | /opt/bin/grep dpt:ssh | /opt/bin/wc -l`

    if test $lines -eq "1"; then
    iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT

    - K.C.

    I have executed the command to add FORWARD entry into the iptables:

    iptables -I FORWARD -p tcp -d --dport 8081 -j ACCEPT

    After the entry was added, I tried to access it via the WAN address again. However I am still not able to access the photo album from the WAN. The IE reported "Unable to open page" error.

    Any idea what else should I check or configure to get the album working? Thanks.
