Postby SirChick » 05. September 2009 18:53

Hey,

Im trying to allow people to access my localhost via my ip but it doesn't load up... i don't get why...localhost works but when i view my ip/file.php suddenly it hangs for ever and it won't load.... is there some setting i have to change to allow it?

Hope you can help.

If it's work for anyone, what's the problem? You don't want that people can access your server? (maybe I misunderstood you)

OK.

Assuming a default XAMPP installation, Apache is listening to all incoming connections.
--> So you have to verify your firewall or router settings.

BTW:
It's (can be) normal that you self can't use your external ip. So someone else have to test this.

Well i do have a router, but i put my ip in to the DMZ.. i should add i have managed to get it to work before (on vista) now im on Windows 7 and it hangs when i attempt it... so i don't think its the router as settings have no changed since vista.

That leaves W7 firewall... what can i do to add to the firewall to see if it will work ?


EDIT:
Should i check my error logs to see if there is a connect log that can help see what is stopping it ?

You can check your "access.log", to see if there is a connection attempt.

That the connection does not reach the webserver. Something is blocking it.

What are you using for a firewall? I was using Nod32 for AntiVirus and for Firewall, I had to switch the firewall mode to allow other PC's on my home LAN to gain access.

Hello Guys!
I'm Dominik
I am spending a lot of time on hosting my website on my pc home server.
I can not get it to work from outside, from inside the router windows shows up.
I have Linksys Router WRTU54G-TM, and Comcast ISP - which is a bitch, because they did not let me get static ip, even additional IP, even additional account. So I have Dyndns Updater, for now I have a free domain name just for testing, if I will get it to work, I am going to buy a couple of dyndns domainnames, for my dream websites. I forwarded the ports listed below. Do I need to do the triggering port stuff? DNZ is enabled. DHCP is enabled. Firewalled is disabled in the router. dyndns.org is set up in the router, because it's got the option for it.

If I don't have static ip, and I have Comcast should I set my TCP/IP in Local area connections to static or what or I should leave to obtain automatically?

Looks like that dyndns 3.1.0 is working properly. Is there any way I can check if it works properly?

I am using appache 2.0 as a server. I added there ports; 80, 8080, 443, even 21, 22, 23, 25. The IP is the same as my ISP's. The domain name is dominiczek.mine.nu - again just for testing for the start.
In the host file in my windows my ip is set up to the same as my ISP and domain name.

I have Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3
I forwarded the ports in Windows Firewall.
I have windows Defender
I have Kasperky Antivirus, free one - which is the best - I totally recomend it.

If I forgot something to provide, just aske me questions. Sorry for too much questions, but I am sure that my experience will help somebody in the future.
I hope you can help me out here, I really need these website to work.
DynDns guys help me out please!
Guys Thanks in advance!
Dominiczek
