Hi, I'm new to Linux and to the forums. I have recently installed Fedora Core on a machine and am attempting to use Apache. Have run into a little problem opening up the correct ports. I've been using the guide at to help me out, but it's not really helping any. The router in question is a Belkin Wireless F5D7230-4. I have attempted to use the routers port forwarding option to open Port 80 and 443, but when I do, it comes back to me with an error message that reads: "The public port number cannot be 80.Because it will have a collision with the Wireless Router web service." (Typos included verbatim). What does this mean and how do I fix it? Much help would be appreciated. Thank you.

NOTE: This is not a Linux problem specifically, I can access the router from other machines on my network that use Windows and it gives me the same message.

Your router's web-based administration panel already runs on port 80. Try and configure it to listen on, say, port 82
