Possible Port Problems

Postby Froste » 22. February 2013 03:07

I have apache running on one of my computers and when I go to its IP address (192.169.X.X), shows the html file located in "c:\xampp\htdocs" so I know the server is working. Problem is when I type my online IP address, it cant find anything and times out. I have my router forwarding port 80 and 443 to the computer with the server, but it doesn't work. Can anyone figure out what might be wrong? :?

Are you typing it from within your network? Many routers block loop back calls.
