I set up a QNX 4 box to work as a html - server.
the box hides behind a router, which on the other side is connected to a DSL with static ip adress. everything fine, I can browse, telnet, ftp … anything from the internet.
the router has a functionality to ‘automatically connect’ after a disconnect, as caused by a supply power failure, for example. some entries like user-id and password have to be made in the router’s config pages.
for some reason, which I suspect to be on either the provider’s side or the the router’s fault (I am not willing to dig into that any deeper), I cannot see the QNX 4 server anymore from the internet and vice versa. switching off and on the router helps.
can anyone point me to any reading material ? or maybe to a script, that cron would call, to set up the session fresh once a day, so that I might be able not to use the router’s ‘automatically connect’ feature ?
