Yep, DHCP server and network router is the default. Works quite
well and will allow web serving if you set it up.
Lets call that 188.8.131.52. Are you aware you can get a free
referrer name from dyndns and the like, which can be set up to
update the referenced IP as your IP changes?
Yep, the web requests will go to the modem, not your web server.
Yes. I have the 1300Plus4. I imagine the 1300 interface is similar.
Now, you will have probably set up your web server to get an IP via
DHCP (check your network settings to confirm this). The modem will
have given you a private IP to use. Lets call it 192.168.1.12 (did
I get it right?).
All you need to do is to tell the modem to forward all connections
on port 80 (the normal web server port) to your computer. From your
web server, browse to the modem's configuration web interface
(probably just by entering 192.168.1.1 as the URL in your browser.
Click on Advanced Settings, and find the Port Forwarding
Add a new forward like this:
Incoming port: 80
Destination port: 80 (or whatever your web server is set to)
Connection type: TCP
Destination host: 192.168.1.12 (or your private IP if different).
Click the link to save and reboot the modem. In 30 seconds or so,
you should be right to go. Note that you can't test this from
inside your network though! Either go to some other Internet
connected machine, or remote login to another machine on the
Internet and make a connection back to your web server from there.
Enabling ftp is similar, but a bit more complicated. To enable
PASSIVE ftp, forwards ports 20 TCP and 21 TCP as above. To enable
ACTIVE ftp, you'd actually need to put your web server in the DMZ,
or put the modem into half-bridge mode. Passive should work fine
Hope that helps!
