[Freebox] web server or FTP server
You want to set up a web or FTP server
(or any type of server
) hosted on a computer behind a Freebox. This is possible, but some manipulations are needed:
Configuring Personal Firewall
If a personal firewall is installed on the machine hosting the server, it is necessary to disable it or to set some rules allowing the transfer packets through TCP/IP
port used by the server (port 80 for web server
, port 21 for FTP).
Assign a private IP address
By default, computers connected to the Freebox will have an IP address automatically assigned by DHCP server from the Freebox, which means that the server's IP address can change at every reboot. In the properties of your network card, note the existing values, and the current IP address(192.168.0.x or 192.168.1.x).
Configuring the freebox
In the Freebox, it is necessary to set a NAT rule to allow external computers to access the server behind it:
Setting up a proxy for internal connection
From there, only outsiders can access your server. To see them from the local stations, you must add a proxy address to your browser
(IE, Firefox, Safari or any browser).
For Free useres the proxy is: proxy.free.fr port n° 3128
