I'm guessing you're looking at a configuration problem in your
modem/router *or* your router recognises that the request to 85.... is
coming from inside the LAN and so it serves up the config page for the
router instead of forwarding to the linux server. Try it from outside
your LAN -- use a friends machine or a library machine or get yourself
a free shell account somewhere and use links from that.
