Cannot connect to my IP

Postby Pazza » 29. May 2009 15:59


I've developed a website in htdocs, and I was hoping to make it available to everyone, by simply inputting my IP and voila, they would connect. Although, this is not the case and doesn't work for anyone who tries.

I have a Huawei Echolife 520gs router, and i've forwarded ports 3306 (mysql) and 80(Management). Although, this has made no effect. I have posted on various forums for a solution, yet one hasn't been found, so i've come on to this forum.

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated, and I can only give my thanks.

Which version of XAMPP did you install and what OS?

Check your firewall is not blocking the ports and make sure your ISP allows inbound traffic on those ports - some ISPs block home web servers and home email servers.
