Port Renumbering Settings

If you use NAT pinholes to forward HTTP or telnet traffic through your Motorola Netopia® Gateway to an
internal host, you must change the port numbers the Motorola Netopia® Gateway uses for its own con-
figuration traffic. For example, if you set up a NAT pinhole to forward network traffic on Port 80 (HTTP)
to another host, you would have to tell the Motorola Netopia® Gateway to listen for configuration con-
nection requests on a port number other than 80, such as 6080.
After you have changed the port numbers the Motorola Netopia® Gateway uses for its configuration
traffic, you must use those port numbers instead of the standard numbers when configuring the Motor-
ola Netopia® Gateway. For example, if you move the Gateway's Web service to port "6080" on a box
with a system (DNS) name of "superbox", you would enter the URL http://superbox:6080 in a Web
browser to open the Motorola Netopia® Gateway graphical user interface. Similarly, you would have to
configure your telnet application to use the appropriate port when opening a configuration connection to
your Motorola Netopia® Gateway.
set servers web-http [ 1 - 65534 ]
Specifies the port number for HTTP (web) communication with the Motorola Netopia® Gateway.
Because port numbers in the range 0-1024 are used by other protocols, you should use numbers in the
range 1025-65534 when assigning new port numbers to the Motorola Netopia® Gateway web configu-
ration interface. A setting of 0 (zero) will turn the server off.
set servers telnet-tcp [ 1 - 65534 ]
Specifies the port number for telnet (CLI) communication with the Motorola Netopia® Gateway.
Because port numbers in the range 0-1024 are used by other protocols, you should use numbers in the
range 1025-65534 when assigning new port numbers to the Motorola Netopia® Gateway telnet config-
uration interface. A setting of 0 (zero) will turn the server off.
NOTE:
You cannot specify a port setting of 0 (zero) for both the web and telnet ports at the same
time. This would prevent you from accessing the Gateway.
