SecondLife + VirtualServer

I'm not sure where to post this, but I hope I'm at the right place. To keep the story short: I am unable to connect to SecondLife while I have Virtual Server running on my router.

I am using Virtual Server mode (on my Sitecom 300XR router) because I'm running a webserver at home. I basically need this for port forwarding. When I have this enabled, I am unable to communicate with the Simulator. The login screen freezes on "Awaiting region handshake". I've tried multiple viewers, different ports on the server, but nothing seems to work.

Here are some of my networks infrastructure info, if someone needs this:

Server IP:

Virtual Server : - Port 80 (LAN) - to -> Port 80 (WAN)
Router: Sitecom 300N Gigabit Router XR
Router Firmware version: 1.4

I have my firewalls disabled (on server, desktop and my router) but this doesn't change anything either.


Does anyone know a workaround for this?

I can run any game just fine over multiplayer, so I'm quite certain that the problem lies with the viewer (or any viewer for that matter)


Thanks in advance!

Gah, this is unbelivable!

I've added all ports required by SecondLife as described on this page: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Configuring_your_firewall to my portforwarding page, but I'm still having the same issue...

Do I need a new router? I really can't permit not having my webserver online for work sake. Whenever I enable either Virtual Server or Port Forwarding on this router, SecondLife is unable to communicate with the simulator when I'm running two clients at the same time. I need these two clients since I'm programming bot software. But in order to debug this, I need to be inworld as well on a regular viewer...

I'll try downgrading my routers firmware, see if that changes anything.
