I’m having trouble configuring a server with a static public IP to be accesible through a peplink balance 390 and was wondering if anyone could help.
I never had to do this since I usually just configure the nat mapping to do a 1 on 1 and had no problems accessing the server but that left the server with a dhcp ip thats not public and I need to try out an app on a server that identifies its IP from the network adapters. Doing that left me with the app that communicates to other servers successfully but cannot be reached since it is reporting its ip to be the internal dhcp ip.
So far what I did was, configure the server with the static public ip which at the same time is configured in the list of available ips on the peplink. Then I made a server with that ip in the inbound access section. Then I setup a service in the same section to make sure all TCP traffic to the static public ip is directed to the server. But when trying to connect I get connection refused.
I know I must be missing something very stupid but I looked on the net and didn’t find any guide on doing it and I just can’t figure it out.
So any help would be greatly appreciated.
