Topic: Problem redirecting ports from modem to router
I've spend some weekends to get along with my first OpenWRT router TP-LINK TL-WR841N v8.4c behind a D-Link DSL-321B modem.
To access my modem I've set modem IP to 192.168._0_.1.
Router LAN has default IP 192.168._1_.1.
In addition to default settings I've just set up dynamic DNS support (works), fixed IPs for my home clients/server and Port Forwarding for Nginx running on my home server (80, 443).
Problem: requesting my.ddns.net opens my modem configuration menu instead the Nginx page on the server.
What I've tried:
1. Set router IP (192.168.0.2) in modem configuration as "DMZ" (which means "exposed host" according to modem info).
2. Forwarding whole port range from modem to router.
To confirm: Modem firewall is _dis_abled.
Question: to be honest I don't understand the concept of OpenWRT interfaces yet. Do I need to forward the incomfing traffic on WAN interface to LAN interface separately?
Thx a lot, OpenWRT is awesome!
