I have a question regarding connecting to a gateway remotely.
Let me clarify this with what I have done so far.
I have a windows computer running the gateway on port 8080. The computer is hooked up to a router and the router is hooked up to the internet (It has a external IP / Public IP). The router is configured to port forward all incoming TCP/UDP packages to the static IP address of the computer running the gateway.
The port forwarding configuration looks like this:
Service Type: TCP/UDP
External starting port: 20
External ending port: 20
Internal starting port: 8080
Internal ending port: 8080
Internal IP address: 192.168.0.19
All this i located at location A.
From another location, lets call it location B, I have a computer from which I want to connect to the gateway. Location B has a different public IP-address. Here I open my browser and type in the public IP-address of location A followed by the external starting port. It looks like this:
I thought this would open the gateway but it won’t… What am I missing?
I have tried to ping the public IP-address of location A from location B and here it shows that the request times out?? Is there something basic network configuration that I have missed?
Hope someone can clarify what I need to do and please let me know if further information is needed.
Thanks in advance!
