Xampp viewable on localhost and 192.168.0.6, but not IP

Postby rjohnson1990 » 27. August 2012 17:20

I've seen this problem a lot and I still haven't found a solution for it yet.

I can connect to my website via localhost and 192.168.0.6, but when I try to access via my external IP from www.whatismyip.com, it comes up with a page saying unable to connect.

I port forwarded port 80 in my router and my firewall is not blocking it. I know this because I disabled my firewall and it still didn't work.
I'm pretty sure I port forwarded it right. Went to the Gateway tab and selected Forwarding. I entered my IP (192.168.0.6) and put 80 for both starting and ending port. For the TCP/UDP choice, I selected Both.

My laptop is running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64bit.

My router information:

Cable Modem Information
Cable Modem : DOCSIS 2.0 Compliant
MAC Address : 90:6E:BB:54:60:2A

Well one possibility is that your ISP blocks inbound port 80 requests.

I don't understand why it's blocking it. It worked before through the same internet provider, unless it has different exceptions for different counties.

A quick check with the help desk should answer that one. It's only a guess in a situation like this.

Good Luck
