Now that my XAMPP server works fine in the local network, i want to approach it from every network outside the local network. I've already forwarded the ports as far as i could. But when i insert the ip given by http://whatismyipaddress.com/ in my browser it doesn't give the result i would like! Anyone have some answers?
I've already did some googling, but the results weren't successfull!
You need to unblock port 80 from your firewall to allow outcoming access from your server. Once you're done with that, try to access the IP again. (You can also find your IP by using Wikipedia: use http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:MyTalk; the IP is the title, which is User talk:xxx.xxx.xx.xx depending on your IP)
Some routers do not forward to the Server PC if the request also is coming from the server PC (or from inside the same LAN). Instead they show up the routers config page or similar.
Try to reach your Server from a different PC (outside from your LAN - you may supply a link here so that we can test it for you). And for the clients inside your LAN, you must not enter the Public WAN IP into the browser but the local LAN IP instead.
Someone else tested it and it wouldn't work too! Ports are open, i think ^^! Has someone a check? I definitely allowed the ports in my firewall and the router too. Is there some way to check this? And is there something i need to change in the config file in apache?
