Global Access to server!!?!?!???? H E L P

Postby EDPB » 02. April 2006 18:30

My website cannot be accessed by others outside my local network!

Ive set up a server with XAMPP about 30 times now, tried different things etc, the PC it is at is running windows 2000, and does not have any anti-virus or firewall protection.
At first I tried opening up port 80 at my router, and it had no effect, so I told apache to listen at port 81, and did the corresponding changes in my router settings by allowing port 81 at the servers IP. But still, absolutely no effect.

So what do I do now so that everyone can access it? :?: :?: :?:

you have to enable NAT (network adress translation sometimes called port-forwarding) for port 80 on your router too!

ok, i understood your "opened up port 80" as opened it in the firewall...
so try opening port 80 (81) in your firewall

They can block this port too. And now? ...

BTW:
You are allowed to have an own server at home by your isp?

I dont know, arent sure, but nothing says I CANT, and Ive tried other ports than that too, the ISP is the best in Norway considering quality etc, so Im guessing theyre not blocking ppl from that, and Im able to run remote desktop etc so it should be possible??

Changing ports doesnt help, other programs like XAMPP doesnt help + they arent really any good, and manual apache etc doesnt help either..

PS:
Ive tried this on 2 different PCs and trough a virtual windows 2003 server installation on vmware with NAT networking

localhost or machine IP

Postby Pho3nix » 12. April 2006 20:04

Hi,
Just a quick question, how have you set-up the apache server, as localhost (127.0.0.1) or by network IP?

if you told apache to listen on port 81, did you also add this to the end of the address?

www.yoursite.com:81 ??
or
IP:81

it might sound strange but try and enableing PING on WAN Port.

maybe you've tried all this stuff, may be not. i hope i'm not teaching you to suck eggs! if so, sorry.

all the best.
