Forum Thread: How Do You Use Msfconsole for WAN

I have been wondering how to use msfconsole for WAN (not on you LAN)
I have got the payload to work on LAN, I have port forwarded and everything seems fine.

I just need to know how to set up a metasploit listener which listens for things on WAN. When I try setting the LHOST as my external ip metasploit cannot do that, it has to be internal so how would I get it to work.

Thanks James

Your listener will be your local IP. Ex. 192.168.x.x. or simply
Your payload will be your external IP address.

As long as you correctly have a port forwarded in your router, it should connect back.
