Re: Problems getting on my server

For the benefit of anyone else who runs into this, I eventually figured out what my problem was (because it happened again).

All my traffic goes through two routers -- an "outer" router and an "inner" router. The outer router has a dynamic IP from my ISP. The inner router has a fixed IP. I set up port forwarding on the outer router to forward to the inner and on the inner router to forward to my emulator server. For reasons that baffle me completely, if the IP address on the outer router changes (the Internet-facing interface), then I have to delete and recreate the port forwarding information on the inner router. IMO, this is bizarre, since the inner router in theory doesn't know or care about the outer router's outer interface.
