    Testing port forwarding with gobby

    Hi, is there someone out there who wants to help me testing gobby?

    I need to know if gobby can be reached from outside my network.

    What I have done:
    • I've installed Gobby 0.4.9 (the gobby package in synaptic)
    • I went to my router and configured this line:
      Code:
      No.   LAN-IP-Addr.  Protocol-Type  LAN-Port Public-port  enable
      1.    192.168.1.3   TCP            6522     6522         yes
    • I openend Gobby and started a session without password


    My ip address is 81.241.88.207

    What you should do to help me test it:
    • install the same gobby version
    • start gobby and choose to participate in a session
    • fill in my ip address (81.241.88.207), the port should be ok and then click connect
    • you should see some files I tried (for now a test and a test.tex file) and be able to edit them.


    If anyone would help, it would be great. hope it works from the first time.

    oh yeah, i also openend the port with the command
    Code:
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d 0/0 -s 0/0 --dport 6522 -j ACCEPT
    It could be that you'll have to do the same, I don't know

    EDIT: found that command here:http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ubuntu-451282/

    I found someone who wanted to test it and it didn't work. I even tried to forward port 80 to my computer but only computers inside my network could see my /var/www directory. has anyone got an idea?

    Try using 'gobby-0.5' instead of 'gobby' and if you're setting up a dedicated server, check out 'infinoted' instead of 'sobby'. They are the new development focus and have more features but are beta instead of stable.

    You should probably set up a dedicated server. I'm not sure if a client session can work as a server over the web.
