I've successfully set up port forwarding for Remote Desktop connections on my Turbospeed WR7010v2 router.
Now I would like to set it up for TCP port 80 so I can run a small web server on my home computer for personal use.
I just can't get it to work.
Has anyone had any success with this?

Your rules should be the same just 3389 vs 80?

My rules is slightly different in that Remote Desktop uses both TCP and UDP, whereas HTTP uses only TCP.
It would seem like MWEB is blocking incoming connections to port 80.
Can someone confirm this?

When I ran IT for a small company, we discovered MWEB blocked incoming connections by default (for our "protection"). I think you can disable it from your account dashboard or call them and ask them.

Thanks, that was it :)
All I had to do was log into my MWEB account and toggle off the "Protected Access" feature.
It's all working now.
