The "from" port should be :80 also as that's the standard for http.Here we go..
Now, my routers asks me for the external IP address, that bit's easy. It also asks me for the port number to forward FROM. This I don't know. I do know the IP address and port that I am forwarding TO (192.168.0.102:80)
Indeed. Depends on your router.. the one from O2 works fine, but the BT Homehub that I have makes it impossible to access it via the external IP.. I end up having 2 bookmarks; one for external access, one for internal.Maybe someone with more knowledge can help but in the past I've had issues accessing the external ip address when connected on the local network but thing that was a router issue.
I guess you'd need add the line back in if the webif is updated as the config file will be overwritten?This is probably not the best solution since there are quite a number of sub-directories in the mongoose tree and it would be a bit of a pain to secure them all using this method.
A better method might be to create the .htpasswd file in /mod/etc then edit /mod/etc/mongoose.conf to include the line:
You may have to restart mongoose after making these changes. It will then ignore any per-directory .htpasswd files and only use /mod/etc/.htpasswd for all directoies.
