Thread: Asus WL-700gE as WAN web server

  1. #1

    Red face Asus WL-700gE as WAN web server

    I'm intending tu buy Asus WL-700gE router (HDD!, bittorent!). The only thing bothering me is that I need web server opened to World (port 80).

    Is this possible with this router?
    Does anybody uses it as web server?
    How can I do this 're-configuration' and preserve bittorent functionality?

    I would not like to share files on HDD, I would only like to make few html pages public.

    Does security policy (user and/or group access) for files on HDD works with that router? What firmware?

    Many thanks for your opinion!

    P.S.
    If there is already post in the forum, please just refet me to it. But at the moment I'm out of time and energy to dig deeper!

    WAN web server

    the only way is to open port 8081 from router to wl700 as Asus has blocked port 80 for the web interface. need to forward port 8081 from router to wl700 and then put your web pages in photo folder on wl700.

    You only need to do this if you have another router IN FRONT of the wl-700ge. If the wl-700ge is your router then you should not need to make any port forwarding modifications.

    aaaaah

    do i understand this correct?

    in case i use the wl700 behind another router, i cannot use the normal webfolders on the wl700 to route these websites to the extranet?

    correct, that i have to change my html-files to the folder photo, and then i can access these files from the extranet via port-forwarding in my router in front of the wl700 to the port8081 of the wl700?


    i'm really confused, because it has been so easy with my wl-hdd in the past,



    thank you for your help

    I think there's been misunderstanding here (or I'm misunderstanding something) :-)

    You need to have web pages available from the OUTSIDE, that is web, on your wl700gE?

    Wl70gE has webserver which hosts own asus pages, under which you can put photos, forum and such. And those are visible to the OUTSIDE. I suppose you want OWN pages, instead of these ASUS-created ones.

    It is possible, i.e. if your outside IP is 192.168.1.1 (just an example), you access asus preloaded pages (as i.e. http://192.168.1.1/)

    if you want OWN custom pages, all you have to do is create another folder in MYSHARES1\web (where asus preload pages are stored) and it would be acessible as http://192.168.1.1/folder/index.htm

    Hope this helps.

    webserver

    When kfurge custom software is installed you can alternativly install a ather webserver

    for example:

    install lighttpd & php ( webserver & php ) run it on port 8090( or whatever you like)

    route port 80 to 8090 and you're webserver is available on port 80.

    and you're done

    Openwrt or Custom Firmware on asus? - http://wl700ge.hezik.nl/ - Http://wl700g.homelinux.net

    My ASUS collection: WL500gp(80GB usb-hdd - Running OpenWrt Kamikaze 7.09) | WL700gE(250GB - Running OpenWrt Kamikaze 8.09rc1)
