hi vinay you understood my problem weare on the same page. I am using FC5
and I edited the etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and modified listen port to
8080.. I also change the wifidog.conf located inside the linksys router to
look for <public IP>:8080 instead of
<private IP>80

I still get
Uh oh! Login screen unavailable

   - Version: 1.1.3_beta2
   - Node ID: Wifidog


   - WiFiDog Status <http://www.google.com/wifidog/status>
   - About WiFiDog <http://www.google.com/wifidog/about>
   - WiFiDog's homepage <http://www.wifidog.org/>

 Uh oh! Login screen unavailable
I check the log on the router running wifidog an says it cannot find
authentication server
Oct 14 16:55:01 (none) user.info : [3][Sat Oct 14 16:55:01 2006][1175](
centralserver.c:173) Failed to connect to any of the auth servers
This may very well be because the wireless wifdog router is located inside
the LAN  trying to direct the data traffic to go outside the LAN< To get
authenticated> but cannot go outside the LAN before getting authenticated so
it catch 22(
The only reason wifidog is inside the LAN because i do not have access to
another location where I can put the wifidog on another LAN which outside
the LAN of the authentication server

I am not sure If I am making sense here. I hope you understand.
