Hi, im currently trying to have a website which i am able to conenct to, but others can't for some reason. I recently had a similiar problem when i was using xampplite(poeple were able to connect to my website with its original name, but i had to use http://localhost). Now i use Xampp(not xampplite) and i tried changing listen 80 to listen 85, i restarted apache, and it still didnt work. then i tried changing all 3:
----------------------------------
#Listen 0.0.0.0:80
#Listen [::]:80
Listen 80
----------------------------------

i restarted apache after that and it still didn't work. I dunno what to do? can someone please help me?

Missing support info - what XAMPP version and which Windows OS?

Have you allowed trafic through your firewall?

Are you using a router?

Did you allow traffic through your Windows firewall?

Is your ISP blocking port 80/85 etc.?

Any address that I can test your issue from here?

What address are you giving to those outside your PC to access the Apache server?

Have you put a web site in the htdocs folder so they can access it?

Any entries in the apache\logs\error.log or access.log file that may give clues?

yes i put i in htdocs, im giving them scorpia.no-ip.org. the host is conencted to my ip so it should work. the only erros in logs>errors, are unrelated to a connection problem, its just errors about an image on my website that i was fixing. however there are notices that i think might be helpful:

http://scorpia.no-ip.org/ takes me to a page titled Forgotten - Latest News, Author Gesior that shows TIBIA web site.

Is that the site you mean as it is working for me out here.

It also tells me it is being served by an Apache server on XAMPP.

Maybe it wasn't even broken ;).

BTW you should be able to access your web site using the no-ip address from your own PC but make sure that you have cleared your browser's cache (deleted Temporary Internet Files - do a Google for how to).
