Hello, I emailed the support about this, but was told to call their free number instead. Available only in India. Like the majority of the world's population, I don't live in India. Let me preface this with some online threads of people having the exact same problem: https://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?97139-Unable-to-forward-port-80-from-WAN-to-a-virtual-server http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-3543624/w8960n-disable-remote-access.html https://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?90440-TD-W8960N-V7-and-prot-forwarding-problems https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1893131 https://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?106701-No-HTTP-port-forwarding-with-TD-W8960N& https://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?97308-Port-80-Redirection https://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?96444-Cant-use-port-80-to-modem-router https://forum.tp-link.com/showthread.php?51424-Port-80 https://superuser.com/questions/1278417/how-to-move-router-port-80-to-other Quite a few, huh? I've got a TD-W8960N v7. I'm trying to forward port 80 to my device running a webserver. I don't want the router's web interface accessible from the wan in ANY way. It's supposed to be disabled. Instead of moving to 8080 for lan connections, it's on 80 over wan. My virtual server is the one moving to 8080. The one that's supposed to go on 80. What I want is simple; forward port 80. No router interface, no switching ports around. This is a very serious problem your product wasn't supposed to have and that I wasn't informed about when I paid for it. No ISP/firewall issues whatsoever.

Hi

It is possibly too late to help you but maybe somone else will need it.

I had exactly the same problem. The issue is caused by the router itself as its web management control panel works on port 80. So when you try to forward port 80 to other IP it won't work.

And the solution is so simply (now I know after many hours of fight!).

You just need to change listening port of your router to other than 80 (81 I am using now).

In my case (TP-Link MR-3220) it is under section Security/Remote Management. Change port, Save and magically it starts forwarding port 80 to any IP in your LAN.

Hope it helps

Darek
