    Unable to forward port 80 from WAN to a virtual server

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I have a TD-W8960N running in NAT mode. I want to forward port 80 (and others) to a server inside my network.

    When I add port 80 on the external side I get a message saying it is already in use and the external port is changed to 8080.

    When I access the external IP of my ADSL connection it shows the TD-W8960N admin page.

    How can I configure the router to NOT expose the admin web interface AND use the port for my own web server?

    Can you tried to forward other port like 9000? Port 80 is used by the Web UI.

    I have several other ports forwarded for email, https, ssh etc. I run a web server hence the need for port 80.

    Also under no circumstances do I want the admin interface availabe to the internet. I disconnected this router as soon as I found out it was. If this cannot be disabled I will be returning it as a defective product.

    If you do not want the admin interface available to the internet. You can go to Mangement > Access control> Remote Access then uncheck the option of web.
