Opening a port to wordwide web

3 posts in this topic

We have a webserver in dmz zone, the firewall appliance is sonciwall.Earlier the webserver got only iis in it and it used port 80 and is accessible from world wide web, recently we installed wamp in it and started apache in port 8080, we have a drupal based website hosted in apache.

The website in apache is accessible from local network(private), but cant get it from world wide web, port scanning says port 8080 is not open.

Where should i open the port firewall or router (port forwarding) ?

You need a firewall rule and a forwarding rule that look exactly like the one for port 80.

I have added exactly the same rule as you said, but still cannot access apache which is listening on port 8080..

when connecting from LAN to DMZ it works but WAN to DMZ the connection is refused

the firewall appliance is SonicWALL PRO 5060

edit:

did it :) .First i added a "access rule" to open the port

Second added NAT rules in the firewall

Thats it :D
