Get XAMPP on Internet

Postby extreme.aly » 20. April 2009 15:36

Hello ppl! I googled for this thing alot but could get any success.

I have a HUAWEI modem ( which is providing me internet and then I also have a Wireless network (Linksys which is spreading the internet to other computers.

I have given a static IP to the Linksys Router ( and the Linksys router itself have the IP:
A cmputer which have XAMPP installed is connected to the router having the IP:

So far, I have successfully got XAMPP working using:
http://localhost/ (XAMPP PC) (LINKSYS network) (LINKSYS on HUAWEI network)
using port forwarding in Linksys router (xampp listening to port 80)
SO that means that I have got XAMPP on HUAWEI modem.

Now the main thing begins where I can't get through...
I have tried to do port forwarding on HUAWEI modem:
Private IP:
Private Port: 80
Public Port: 80 (also tried 8080 and then tried this link: but not working)

Please tell me how to make it work on internet? I have got it working on my intranet but not on internet!

Those IPs are for LAN (Local Aera Network) Access.

You need to link to your WAN (Wide Area Network) IP...

I would suggest you to use a free program as No-IP DUC => ""
You can take a Free Domain Name; e.g.: "" and the prog will redirect people from this address "" to your WAN IP.

That is impossible - and (i think so) it is not permitted by your provider. Your HUAWEI Modem has been assigned to a Local Lan Address ( instead of a public address.

The HUAWEI Modem is a UMTS Modem which usually does not connect via cable but via cellphone data line. Most cellphone providers do not permit their customers to install a local webserver via UMTS, and some of them simply assign a LAN Address to the clients, so these modems cannot be accessed from the outer world.
