HG659 - Port Forwarding 443

Message 1 of 4 (2,489 Views)

Hi there,

 

I've got a Huawei HG659 modem with my vdsl connection and am wanting to port forward 443 to a particular machine on my lan.

 

When visiting my remote IP on 443, it simply brings up the HG659 config site. This is regardless of the port-forwarding setup, or even if I put the machine in a DMZ, the forwarding on 443 does not work.

 

Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone know how to workaround or fix this?

 

Thanks for taking the time to look at this and hope you might be able to provide some guidance.

 

Regards,

dMP.

Also I found when testing port forwarding with the HG659 that I needed to be completely outside my home network to get results. Try from a mobile data connection.

 

Cheers.

Hey dMP,

 

Something sounds screwy there. You shouldn't be seeing the HG659 config from outside your network.

 

Why don't you try port forwarding with a random port outside your network to port 443 inside your network.

Hi hairy1,

 

You are quite right. I found by going off a completely remote connection it was all working ok.

 

Thanks for the tip.

 

Cheers,

dMP.
