Hi all! I have on my net a home web server for testing purposes. I've configured DNS for web access but when I try to config NAT from DNS I see the router login page.
 Web server address is and this is the NAT configuration: 

Also I've trying to use the application tab with the default config for web server but don't work.
It's possible to set up it?

    I don't see what DNS has to do with it.
    Anyway, are you testing from inside or from outside? Don't know if your router supports loopback (accessing the external IP address from inside). So it's possible it only works from outside.

    I set up a DNS, not having a static IP, to allow customers to see previews of the work. The idea is, therefore, to redirect requests from the outside to the internal webserver.

    From outside i don't see home of web server but the login router page.

    Port 80 is used by default by modem web gui. I'm not sure  you can change that on a Tiscali-locked modem.

    In the applications tab of NAT, it's possible to add an application with default configuration and there's webserver config. I've been trying it but nothing resolving.

    If there's a default config for webserver I think it possible to do .. perhaps I been wrong with WAN Interface?

    Of course the webinterface of the router is not supposed to run on the WAN. If you remove your portforwards, do you still see the firmware interface from outside?

    You could check in Management/Remote management: port 80 shoud be in use.
    Anyway, I'm not sure you can either access and/or modify that page on a Tiscali-branded modem.

    Generally, you don't want to use port-forwarding to forward an incoming port,
    to the same port on your LAN.

    Try placing your internal webserver onto a different port, such as 8080, for example.
    Then change your port forwarding rule "Mapped port" to 8080, and try it again.

    Alternately, some dynamic DNS providers will let you specify a specific port number
    for your website. . .   if so, change it to something other than 80.
    Example:    mywebserver.dynamicdns.com:9191

    Then on your router, map your incoming port 9191 to your internal webserver at port 80.

    See example from DYN, in the link below. . .

    You may need some combination of both, to get it to work correctly.
