    Apache Newbie Issue


    Hello,
    Me and my friend have recently set up an apache server on a computer running Linux that is connected by an ethernet cable to the router and is connected to the internet.

    I can succuessfully connect to the server from another computer in the network with the server computer's internal ip adress.

    However, when I try to access it from a computer outside of the network over the internet using, http://(server computer's external ip):80 and http://(server computer's external ip) I can't connect to the server.

    Do I need to port forward the server computer? And if so, how?

    Or am I just trying to connect to the server from an outside computer the wrong way?

    Thank you very much in advance for any responses!

    in order to connect your computer through internet, your computer must have a registered domain name, and your domain name is registered in any name server
