I have run XAMPP for at least a year or two now with no problems. The installer and packaging saves a very large ammount of time, and still allows you to customize as much as you want... I love it. Two days ago, however, I encountered a problem which I can't seem to fix... I suddenly lost the ability to connect from ouside the LAN.
Port 80 is forwarded. SBC Yahoo does not seem to block port 80 either.
I use two different dynamic IP DNS services (no-ip.com and homeip.net).
My router is a Linksys WRT54G.
All other services on the server work perfectly (such as Teamspeak).
I can access the server by its LAN address (192.168.1.3) but outside users cannot access it. I also cannot access it by the URL version (http://glor.homeip.net).
The server had worked perfectly up until this point and no changes have been made to that PC for months... I didn't even have a monitor, keyboard, or mouse on it. I simply used VNC to restart if need arises.
I checked all the computers on the network with Sysinternals TCPView program. The only program listening on port 80 on the entire network was the apache.
I reinstalled XAMPP to the latest version, and the problem remains.
The windows firewall is disabled, and there is a port 80 exeption there too, just in case.
Does anybody have a clue as to what could have caused my port 80 to stop forwarding correctly, or how I might further diagnose the problem?
