Hi.

Just activated my unrestricted APN from Vodacom and can make connections
perfectly.:cool:

I have also created a DDNS system so the unique Vodacom IP is assigned to a
static URL.

However when i enter this URL on a PC directly linked to the router i access
the login page the same as entering the routers IP. However on a "foreign" PC
with a separate internet connection, when i type the URL it gives me a server
time out error. Which i really don't understand.

I thought about portforwarding the routers IP 192.168.1.1 but on trying this it
simply says that IP is invalid. So I tried portforwarding another IP 192.168.1.2
on port 80 (HTTP) and assigned the routers remote web management IP to
192.168.1.2. However no success still a server time out error on other
PCs.:eek:

I also phoned Vodacom data support and they tried to help but as it is
unrestricted APN they were not able to solve the problem.:mad:

So can anybody PLEASE HELP ??:confused::confused:

:rolleyes:**Info**:rolleyes:
Router: Vodafone B970
RouterIP: 192.168.1.1
Remote-Managment-IP:192.168.1.2
Success-Rate: 0 :(

I think you need to test the connection to the dyndns url from another machine attached to the internet. Testing it from a machine attached to your network is probably not going to work.

Ok. - clear up some things!

The first idea for remote IP being 0.0.0.0 returns an invalid IP address error.

Second of all my DDNS setup is fine and updates my URL successfully every time
I connect. Thus if i put this URL into a browsers address area (on a local machine my login page displays!! - because it reads the IP address that has been assigned to the URL is my Dynamic Vodacom IP).

However on any other separate machine the address (URL) gives a server time out error.

So what exactly are you trying to achieve? Do you want to manage the router remotely or do you want to portforward to some service on your LAN? I believe the remote IP address field under remote management settings refers to the remote IP of the machine that will connect to the router.
