    Unhappy route static subnet through from wan

    ISP has routed a static subnet to dynamic (but permanent) wan IP

    ISP GW -
    MY WAN IP -

    routed subnet -

    have linux 2.4.20 and iptables on router,

    interface - vlan1 -
    interface - br0 -

    routing table - - - br0 - (lan) - - - vlan1 - (wan) - - - lo
    default - - - vlan1 - (wan)

    forwarding is enabled, iptables is empty with defaults of ACCEPT

    hosts behind br0 are able to talk to the internet OK
    The internet can ping router br0 interface from the wan side.

    Host behind the router can reach the internet

    The router can reach host by ping and port 80
    The internet can NOT reach host from the wan side

    what's wrong with this picture?
    what is needed to make the subnet hosts visible to the internet?

    Is forwarding turned on? If you have IPTABLES running with no rules then you can turn that off as it is doing nothing.
