Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache and router

Hi . Thanks for the help. There is some other script following the 2nd screen url. I omitted
this because I thought it unecessary. cgi-bin is followed by /ai. 
Apologies for not including this.
I am still puzzled why the url flips to the IP of the router on the occasion of the sending
of a booking request from the user, outside of the router, to the server that is behind the
router.

  Your 2ndscreen URL looks very suspicious; I've never seen /cgi-bin which was not followed
by something. Whatever has handled that URL looks like it has sent out a page with a URL containing
http://192.168.0.2

    Hi. I have a problem! 

    I am using Apache along with a software system on a server at a club. The system is accessed
over Internet to make bookings. There is a router in between the club LAN and the Internet.
There is a static IP address for the server. The first message from the Internet to the club
that activates two introductory screens works fine and you will see an example with amended
- for security reasons -  IP addresses below. The first interaction from the customer, when
booking details are sent to the server over Internet, causes the http IP address to change
to that of the router after which the booking sequence falls over because the server can no
longer be accesed over Internet.

    USING WEB ADDRESS

    First screen

    http://www.xxx.



    2ndscreen

     http://www.xxx/cgi-bin



    3rd screen where problem begins and router IP address is substituted

    http://192.168.0.2/cgi-bin/ai





    4th screen etc - problem remains

    http://192.168.0.2/cgi-bin/ai



    USING IP ADDRESS (Amended for security reasons)

    First screen

     http://86.13.8.7/



     2nd screen

    http://86.13.8.7/cgi-bin/ai



     3rd screen etc

    http://192.168.0.2/cgi-bin/ai




    My question. Is this an Apache config problem or a Router setting problem or both or neither?
    What is the solution?

    Thanks for any help
    John Tunstall
