I have a valid IP address set on my router. I want to map the IP address to my server running windows server 2008 r2 enterprise, But I don't know how to do it! Can any body please help me with this? I also need to forward my ports from modem to CRM application, any guide on this? Thanks in advance However, I know how to use the wizard to set static IP address!(LAN properties->IPv4 Properties), my problem is that my ISP has offered default gateway and subnet mask addresses in my modem's page, which are different from those I can see in CMD window when I type ipconfig command, So, should I set these addresses too? Because when I tried, I got a warning message! Help me please!
In general, what you can do is setup your router with the IP address given by your ISP in WAN settings page and configure your LAN with static IP, configure you server with a static ip,say 192.168.1.10 or something with reference to the router LAN settings. goto the page for forwarding ports and give your server IP address port number and protocol there.
PC's connected to the router uses the default gateway IP as the routers IP, thats why you get different address in cmd. need to know about which router you are using to help out you more
The settings ISP gave you have to go into the router's configuration, particularly the network interface facing the ISP. There should be an IP address, netmask and a default gateway (optionally DNS addresses). The other network interface facing your local area network can have addresses of form (192.168.X.X, 172.16.X.X, 10.X.X.X/8).
For port forwarding you have to configure NAT (Network Address Translation) on your router and map the
For ex. you want to NAT a web server to outside world. Web server is 192.168.1.254 and outside address is 203.0.113.17, then create a rule in NAT configuration like:
But for more precise info please describe your equipment and addressing scheme a little bit more.
