Hi, I setup my ip with dyndns.com so that I can access a LAN web server at my house.  The ip for the server is  The problem is that when I access it from the outside without the port number, i.e. myserver.dyndns.org, I get straight to the routers login screen.  When I add the port number to the end, myserver.dyndns.org:80, then all is well.  Is there anyway I can make sure that either:


1. I block incoming traffic from getting to my router's login screen (router is a Westell Ultraline Series3 9100em)


or better yet...


2. Forward requests for myserver.dyndns.org straight to my web server?

Mostly likely port 80 is being blocked by your ISP, unless you are on the Business Plan.


#1 When forwarding port 80, is port 80 open from the net?

#2 When not forwarding port 80, is port 80 open from the net?


You can test for those things, using any of the following sites:

grc.com shields up




#3 You can change the port number that this web server listens on?

b) If you do not know what I mean by this, it would help to know the program's name...

Yeah, looks like verizon is blocking port 80.  Port 443 is open though, so I might just use that instead.  The program I am trying to access is my Windows Home Server on my HP MediaSmart Server.
