I have a linux (redhat 6.2) machine that has port 9006 open for an
I have a pacific Internet ADSL Alcatael Speetouch Pro Modem/router
I have setup a nat entry for the port 9006 to be forwarded to the internal
Linux machine on 192.168.X.X
If I am on the local LAN I can telnet to the 9006 port using the Linux PC's
Local IP address. (i get garbage but it connects)
If I am at Home I can telnet to the port using the external IP address of
the modem/router. (static IP 202.7.X.X)
If I try and telnet to the port using the external IP address, while on the
local LAN, it does not connect.
I know it is not a Linux problem and am sorry for being off topic, I am
trying to access a Linux machine though if that counts for anything.
it seems to me that a request to the modem/router to access an internal IP
address while I am on the internal LAN confses the poor alcatel somewhat.
