    Troubleshooting RH9 behind PT-3812


    I'm having lots of trouble accessing my RH9 box from my external IP. I have read enough about port-forwarding and DMZ and its just not happening.

    It could be the modem - i've exchanged it for a new one... same prob: everything is working except this.

    It could be the RH9 box however...
    - iptables is all set to ACCEPT
    - tcp wrappers are set to default (host.allow/deny are blank)
    - running an nmap scan displays all necesary ports are open on the local IP
    - all servers are accessable by the local IP

    I tried setting the DMZ to an unused IP and scanned the external IP with an number of scanners all reporting that there are no stealth ports - does this mean its the modem again?

    Is port forwarding conditional of the modems NAT or WAN settings?

    Can anyone please help?

    I think the best way to see if the problem lies with the computer or the modem/router is to run tcpdump or ethereal on the computer while sending packets to it from an outside computer.
