problems getting past my LAN/router
[1/8] from: eric:ehrichweiss at: 15-Dec-2004 16:04
Hi, I've been playing with Rebol on and off for a couple years now but only recently needed to do anything that required access from outside my LAN. Well to get started I began playing with the tiny webserver code and to test it I tried accessing it from my IP(I've got static IP) and the server didn't seem to be listening to anything outside of my LAN. At first I had problems getting it to be seen beyond my loopback interface but I finally figured out what I was doing and now this. Before you suggest it, I already have my router set to forward port 80 to my server so that's not the problem(plus it's setup as the DMZ so everything should pass openly to it). My firewall is configured to allow Rebol full access to the network. Anyone have any ideas? I'll entertain any and all thoughts... P.S. I'm using the latest version of Core and View so this is not a simple update issue

Never mind... I'm gonna hafta work with why it doesn't allow network access if the directory of the script isn't inside the rebol dir... Ah well...

I'm interested in hearing the solution to this as well. I've seen similar DSL/Cable router problems at homes I've visited. That is, even though the router is set to forward in-bound ports to a LAN host (port 80 or even AltME ports), the router does not do it. These routers are pretty simple, and there are not a lot of options. Perhaps it is actually an ISP issue in some cases. Anyway, comments are appreciated. -Carl At 01:04 PM 12/15/2004, you wrote:

(resending cause I haven't seen it go through yet) Hi Carl, This is what I discovered. No matter what I do, if my script is run from outside my rebol dir, the script will not have any non-loopback interface connections. So if my directory is "c:\rebol\view" and my script is in "d:\scripts", it won't open the port except as loopback. Here's something that I'm now trying to work out and I'll probably start a new topic for it later if I can't find an answer soon: I've been running the "5 page" Rebol webserver that is supposed to handle cgi, etc. but for some reason I can't get it to handle POST-ing forms; it'll handle GET just fine. I know my script works because I tested it with Aprelium(which I like but suspect it'll be overwhelmed when I start taking on 1000+ connections at a time), so I suspect that the webserv.r isn't passing the POST data along to the form action script. P.S. I just upgraded View to 2.6.0 and when I run it, it no longer opens the Desktop by default, is there a good way to change this? Carl wrote:

Yes - in prefs.r (which should be in your REBOL/View directory) set desktop to true. -- Carl Read.

I've seen that, too. The other way (which worked for me, btw), add desktop into your user.r Hope that helps, Ingo
