    Any of you guys have a suggestion on how to get my site to poke through firestarter? I run the wizard and open up port 80 to everyone but still can't see the site from outside.

    I know this is a nix newbie question... so be gentle;)
    • I'm not familiar with firestarter, but the first question I have is: Is the firewall on the same box as the slashsite or is it a different piece of hardware?
          If it's a different piece of hardware, as mine was, in addition to "opening" the port, you'll have to "redirect" incoming port 80 on the firewall to port 80 on the slashsite.
          Please give more detail, and we'll help as best we can!

        I think he means Firestarter [].

        Yes, in addition to opening a port, you need to tell the firewall where to have all the traffic for that port to go.


        It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.

          hrm, where? I ran the wizard and opened 80 but I don't see anywhere for it to tell where to forward port 80.

          How do I tell it to allow connections to port 80 from the world ip's versus the internal 192.*...'s?
