I am also having this problem.

I did a fresh install of xampp (current self installing version on Windows XP SP2) today to "E:\Program Files\xampp\". I have also port forwarded ports 80, 8080 and 443 in an attempt to get it to work and my Windows Firewall is off. I have done a ShieldsUP test, and the ports are open and visible.

I've seen some of the other threads make metion of using vhosts, but these seem to be used for running multiple websites on the one webserver. I tried modifying my "E:\Program Files\xampp\apache\conf\extra\httpd-vhosts.conf file as specified in one of the other threads, however Apache just wouldn't start.

I'm really banging my head over this, i know there has to be something stupid i've missed. Any help you can offer would be much appreciated.

It seems I was mistaken. I should have got somebody else to try to access the webserver via my IP before posting.

While looking through the other posts, someone mentioned that you can't access yourself via the public ip because the router doesn't forward it properly.

It seems that if I type my public IP address from my computer, it times out. But if others do, it works. It doesn't seem right to me, as I would have thought the request would be sent to my ISP, which would resolve the IP to me, and then go through my router.

Sorry for the false alarm.
