    I am trying to forward port 80 requests to a web server
    connected to an MN-500 base station. I have an entry in
    Port-Forwarding as follows:

    Enabled - checked, Description - "http", Inbound Port -
    "80", Type - "TCP", Private IP Address - the IP of the
    web server, Private Port - "80"

    If I type http://localhost or http://<web server IP> into
    the browser while on the web server it returns a web
    page. If I type http://<WAN IP address> I receive "Cannot
    find server or DNS Error"

    Thanks in advance...

    Make sure you have the latest firmware rev installed.

    You need loopback support to do what you are describing, that support was
    added to the MN500 in its later firmware updates (that would be v 1.11.017)

    The problem was that I had two firewalls. The MN-500
    firewall and Windows XP firewall. I had not allowed port
    80 access through the Windows XP firewall.
