Hey Apache Friends -
I recently successfully installed XAMPP on one of my PCs. However, I seem to be stuck somewhere. I gave my pc a static IP address and opened up ports 80 and 443 in both my Linksys router and my ZyXEL 660 series modem. I have DynDNS redirecting one of their free domains to my external IP. Then, I have the modem's firewall forwarding accepting WAN to LAN traffic, and my Linksys Router forwarding all WAN traffic to the static IP of the server.
When test the ports for the external IP address, they are closed, even though I made an exception for them in the NAT. I have gone through every possible menu item in both the router and modem. ANy help would be greatly appreciated.
