Hi there,

I have a strange problem with XAMPP on my home server running W2K8. After a while (~an hour?) my websites in /htdocs/ are no longer reachable over the internet (by At this point they are still accessable over local IP ( that is). When I reboot my router (D-Link DIR-655) it is accessable again, but only for about an hour, as stated earlier.

I run more programs out of my network, on ports like 8080, 8085. These are still working at this point, through something like Ofcourse, these aren't running on XAMPP, which is why I'm thinking the problem is with XAMPP here. It isn't my domain name either, because http://<externalip>/site doesn't work either. With the other programs something like http://<externalip>:8080/program does work.

Thanks in advance.
