Hello everyone...need help with xampp please..

I installed xampp in C drive...got everything working and runnning localhost in browser also shows welcome page of xampp.
But the problem is, when my friend tries to open my xampp server site using my public ip address which i noted from www.ipchicken.com, he dont reach the page. it says "could not connect to remote server" ..please help me how to make xampp public over internet so that anyone can see my site that am publishing in xampp. and when i enter my public ip address in my computer where xampp is running, it shows xampp welcome page without problem...why do others outside my network cant access my xampp pages (site) ?
please help me...
m running xampp 1.81 on windows 7 32 bit.

only localhost working and not from others...

thanks in advance..

My guess is some combination of the following:

1. It is being blocked by some security software/firewall on your machine
2. You are behind a router (NAT) and did not forward the required ports
3. Your ISP does not forward your ports/does not allow you to run your own servers

hello..
i read your posts ..
can u please help me with xampp
my problem is when i type "localhost" or "127.0.0.1" then m successfully able to see welcome page of xampp..
its working fine ...but its working only on my laptop on which it is installed.
i mean others cant access the files in my xampp that i want to publish.
like if i try to type my public ip address on my mobile , i dont get any result. cant see the site.
as if i typed some wrong address...firewall is also off. am using internet via bluetooth (tethering) via my android phone.
dynamic ip is enabled.
using internet via tethering from my android phone...so i guess dont have any router issue...firewall is off..

kindly help me in enabling access across network...like anyone with my public ip should be able to see what m publishing/hosting.
n i did changed in http-d.conf file too makin "allow from all"

That is not exactly true. Your phone is acting as a router in this case. I did a quick Google search and it appears many people are asking about port forwarding in relation to tethering on the phone so that functionality might no be there by default. I have never attempt to do this so I can not tell you for sure what works and what does not work.

You might want to start by looking at something like this:

I would also make sure that you can contact your phone IP first from the internet to make sure your carrier is not blocking that. If that does not work, you will need to do some searching around on google or other places to see what other people have done.
