Do you want to run your own mail server, ftp site, etc... over your Office Online connection? Normally, your internal network is protected from being noticed by the outside world because the Farallon router acts as a firewall. So, if you want outsiders to have limited access to your internal server, you'll need to allow them in. In the text below, we'll describe how to setup your router to export traffic to your particular server.
|Configuring your Farallon router to allow traffic to your server:|
First off, you must Telnet to your
router. Usually the IP (the host you must connect to) is 10.0.1.1 unless you or your network
administrator have customized it for your particular needs. Once in, go
through the menus:
Advanced Configuration/Network Protocol Setup/IP Setup/Exported Services
You'll end up seeing a screen like the one below. Check to see if there are currently any exported services before adding any more. You should only have one per port number.
Exported Services (Local Port to IP Address Remapping) Show/Change Exports... Add Export... Delete Export...
After adding exported services, use the show feature and it will list which exported services are active:
Exported Services +-Port Name---Port #---from IP Address-+ +--------------------------------------+ | smtp 25 10.0.1.2 | | ftp 21 10.0.1.2 | | pop3 110 10.0.1.2 | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | +--------------------------------------+
Depending on what features you have in mind for your server, you will need
to specify which ports you want to allow access on. Then you must decide
which ip to export them to (this is the internal network ip address
of the actual server). Some of the most common ports are:
Port 21 - FTP (File Transfer Protocol) Traffic
Port 25 - SMTP (Outbound Mail) Traffic
Port 80 - HTTP (Web) Traffic
Port 110 - POP3 (Incoming Mail) Traffic
Normally, the server ip will be based on 10.0.1.# but may differ if you have customized the router for your particular network.
Once you've setup your server, you can connect to it by going to the router's ip address or domain name. If you are running a mail server, please contact Tech Support to have us direct all mail to your router's ip address. If you wish to have another name, such as ftp.domain.com or www.domain.com associated to your router's ip, please also contact Technical Support. For additional information on exporting services, please see Netopia's FAQ.
