Network Setup

Configuring for Network Address Translation

One case where you will need to modify the 'Advanced mode' settings is to configure your server to accept http connections on a different ip address (and/or port) from the local machine address (and/or port). This kind of setup is usually referred to as 'Network Address Translation' or NAT for short.
To enable NAT you will need to specify the IP Address and HTTP Port that are displayed under 'Simple mode'. To disable NAT simply change this value back to localhost.
The server decides which address to return to the user (internal or external) based on the remote users address and the pattern address. All configurable properties are listed below:

Another case where you will need to modify the 'Advanced mode' settings is to configure your server to work through a web http or socks proxy web server. If you have a proxy server and do not configure these settings your nesstar server will not be able to function fully.
The server uses the proxy address to make http connections to itself both internally and from the client tools bundled with the server. All configurable properties are listed below:
