I have a Zentyal Server with an external NIC (For Internet) and Internal NIC (For LAN)
My problem is that I cannot see my Zentyal Server on the Internet. My 2nd problem is my domain name is not pointing to my server even after I pointed it to my static IP address
Firstly I changed the “A Record” at my domain register (register.com) and set it to the Static IP Address provided by my ISP. (96.58.X.X2)
I have a one Motorola Modem/Router provided by my ISP with the following settings
Subnet of 255.255.255.252
The ISP router is in bridge mode
WAN Port 1 is setting up for static IP address by ISP and the other 4 ports are dynamic with an local IP Address of 192.168.0.1
My router is a Linksys 1900AC
Is set with the ISP Static Address 96.58.X.X
With a subnet of 255.255.255.252
My Local Network within Linksys Router is:
My Zentyal Web Server is setup on IP Address 192.168.1.75 with it being static locally within my router
I used port forwarding of the following:
Port 80 as TCP Protocol on IP address 192.168.1.75
Port 443 as TCP Protocol on IP address 192.168.1.75
This is just for starters, I just wanted to be able to see is on the Internet.
I can get to the Internet on all devices in my network.
But when I use port forwarding I cannot see my web server at all.
I did a test to make sure my web server was working properly, I removed my Linksys Router and placed my web server directly into Motorola ISP Modem/Router on WAN port 1 and it worked just fine after assigning it the static IP Address, default gateway, & subnet given by ISP to my Zentyal Webserver external NIC.
I also have a noip.org account that I was using dynamic IP Address but I was having problems getting my email back to my server, I could send email to other places just fine but getting email back was the problem, this was before I got a Static IP from ISP.
My Zentyal Server supports noip.org for use of dynamic IP Addresses so your web server never loses it's connection to your domain name or the Internet connection etc.
My ISP is Bright House Networks and they state that they do not block inbound nor outbound ports.
