Port forwarding HTTP traffic on port 8080



  • Hi Guys,

    I need to port forward port 8080 in one of PC's on LAN however the rule seems to be not working. I have already port forwarded port 80 of the same machine successfully and I don't know why it doesn't work on port 8080. I followed the same procedure described here http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/How_can_I_forward_ports_with_pfSense%3F

    Any idea what's wrong?

    TIA



  • Do you have a firewall on that pc. did you make test from another lan pc? is there a router in front of your pfSense box?

    I've disabled the firewall on that PC (WinXP) and I'm doing the test from outside the network. pfSense is the main router, no other router behind or in front.



  • Delete that portforward for 8080 and the firewallrule it created for it. Then readd the portforward making sure the firewallrule autocreate tickbox is still enabled. If that doesn't help either review your firewall rules at WAN. The order is important and in case you have some custom block rules there and the firewallrule is created below that one it won't match. If that still doesn't help edit the firewallrule and check the log option. Then retest and check your firewallogs at status>systemlogs, firewall.
