unable to connect to my own website

Postby gtv11 » 11. July 2010 04:35

"windows confirmed that "98.145.197.63" is currently online, but is not responding to connection attempts at this time.

this usually means that a firewall is running somewhere between the two computers and is blocking " world wide web service(HTTP)". windows has confirmed that windows firewall on this compute is currently configures to allow this connection. however, a remote firewall might be blocking your connection.

it didnt allow me to copy and paste.... so i hope the grammer is ok.
port check says all ports are open, and i checked my router, it says its still open...
and i checked from the computer it runs on, so......

help?!.

Well I hope its a XAMPP install we are talking about. LOL.

You may need to create an exception in the Windows (or other) firewall on the host machine. XAMMP would run as localhost, but not respond to remote requests. Are you running any of those security suites?

Any chance your ISP blocks port 80?

Does FileZilla work? If it does and Apache doesn't could be a port 80 specific issue.

Good Luck.

What Windows version are you on?

Its probably a port 80 issue if FileZilla works.

Should I assume that you tried to access from outside your local network? Did you check with your ISP? If your server machine is at your residence, many Cable and DSL providers don't allow port 80 inbound requests on their basic plans. Do you have a fixed IP or dynamic?

do this:

at the command prompt on a machine OUTSIDE your local network, type

Code: Select all
tracert 98.145.197.63


(use either the fixed IP of your router, or your domain name)

this will likely reveal where the firewall or problem is (it shows the path to the destination IP and how long each hop takes.

this is not an XAMPP issue most likely. (one is NEVER sure of everything)

Good Luck
