[ASUSWRT/Merlin] Multiple problems (port forwarding, stability)

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am using an Asus RT-AC87U with AirVPN. I have a couple of problems.

 

I wish to forward multiple :80 ports to multiple addresses, but I believe that is not directly possible. I can create the IPTABLES rules, but I can only open port 80 to the VPN if I am correct? Is there a way I can open multiple :80 ports on multiple local IPs? It doesn't really matter if I need different or new hardware.

 

Second, my Asus router seems very instable. The speeds are slow (around 1.5mbps where I can get 300mbps without VPN), but that isn't the real problem. Every week or so, the VPN client disables itself without further notice, and I can't enable it manually, it simply never starts. The logs state nothing. The only option I found so far is to fully reset the router and setup everything from stock again, until it breaks again.

 

Am I maybe better of using a custom (server-grade) box or router running PfSense (or similar)? Also keeping my first quesion in mind.

I'm wondering what you're trying to achieve. Multiple websites on one machine? Multiple webserver daemons? To mitigate the XY problem, please let us know.

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

I'm sorry if I wasn't clear enough.

 

I am indeed using multiple computers as webservers to achieve a hobby project. All computers need port 80, that is the problem.

 

I can't change the port in the webserver software, it is custom made (proprietary) software.

AirVPN offers dynamic DNS.  All you'll need to remember is the DDNS name you gave to each forwarded port.  Then you can force your servers to listen on whatever port AirVPN assigns you, no need to remember the different port numbers.

 

If you're having stability problems, then talk about it on the AsusMerlin forums.  https://www.snbforums.com/forums/asuswrt-merlin.42/

A proprietary webserver software with no ability to change the port it listens to? There are a few red flags. Is Apache or nginx for example not an option?
