it is NOT possible to access your Webserver from behind your Router with your public IP Address.

Your Router will not forward the request.
The Router will only forward incoming requests.
But since you are already in the LAN you don't have an incoming request...
Since you never leave your LAN (because your Router realizes that he has already found the IP)

So long

not quite....
You still have to forward the Port 80 to your server, and deaktivate the Firewall in the Router....

When I scan your IP I get the following answer:

Port State Service
53/tcp open domain
80/tcp filtered http
135/tcp filtered loc-srv
137/tcp filtered netbios-ns
138/tcp filtered netbios-dgm
139/tcp filtered netbios-ssn
445/tcp filtered microsoft-ds

1. you should close the Ports 135 - 139
2. forward 80 443 21 and 20

So long

Hey, i am having the same problem....
I can view my page from localhost, however i cannot view it (nor can anyone else who isn't on my router view it) using my IP. I have the 80, 443, 21, and 20 ports properly forwarded and i have no firewall.
Any ideas?
