I'm interested in creating a home server wherein i can upload websites, ftp server and vpn.
I've set up a freedns dynamic ip updater account so that i can access the computer even though the ip changes on each reset of the modem.
the problem is that when i access the router through an external ip, even after port forwarding, I end up opening the router admin page. I've checked that the port is open using www.canyouseeme.org and found out that it is open. the ip address is properly linked to my desktop internal ip address.
can anyone suggest any fix for this problem?
