Port forwading with US Robotics 9003 Sureconnect ADSL Ethern

Hi all
Got ADSL the other day, set up was easy and everything was working fine.
But now have been trying to set up port forwading on so that I can access my web server from outside.
Unfortunaly there is no 'port forwarding' option. on my modem (USR Sureconnect ADSL Ethernet/USB Router Model 9003). There are tonnes of options so I am sure that it can be done, but the documentation is not very helpfull. Especialy as I don't know much about router/firewall setup. I keep on breaking it when I try various options, so a reluctant to keep trying in case I get it to a state that I can't fix.

I have tried Google and the USR site but there is nowhere that is much help Sad
Does anyone who knows about networking have this and know how to set it up.
Or does anyone have any helpfull advice?

Look for the NAT configuration option.

Yeah, I had one of these before it exploded after 2 weeks use. I got it to work for apache. I'll do this from memory - as I don't have the USR anymore.

First the machine that is running the web server needs a static private IP. Say 192.168.1.10

Go to the firewall section of the web interface
I think you have to set up IP filtering first...
You'll notice there are some default values. For instance eth1 allows anything in. The lower the precedence value the higher the priority. You'll have to decide the value for that.
For SRC IP address enter 0.0.0.0 with 32 bit netmask. This allows connction from any IP address.
For DEST IP enter your public IP address with a 32 bit netmask even if your public IP is 24 etc. bit. This means only to this address.
SRC port 0 this means from any port.
DEST port 80 if you're web server is running on port 80.
Protocol - TCP.
Flags - none.
Interface name - ppp0.
Direction - IN.
FW action - Allow.
Cick Apply

Now for the NAT
First
Static WAN - enter your public IP address this maps public to private IP addresses and ports
Next
Port range mapping
Enter your public IP address
Public port from - 80
Public port to - 80
Local address - the static private IP for the machine on the LAN that runs the web server
Local port from - 80
Local port to - 80
Protocol TCP
Cick Apply

I think you need this as well
Static NAT mapping this maps private IP's to your public address.
Local address from - your first machine's address
Local address to - your last machine's address
NAT public IP
Click Apply

It should all work now.

The fact that promantis had one blow up doesn't sound like a recommendation to me!

The Netgear DG814 fits your stated requirements and doesn't, in my experience, blow up. I'm sure there are many more too.
