Port forwarding - apache server not visible from public side
I'm new to apache, this is the first web server I've attempted to configure and I just can't seem to get it visible. Yes, apache IS running. I know apache is running correctly (I can view the test html files on the private side), I can view files like 192.168.1.250:8080/test.html. My apache/conf/httpd.conf includes:
which are the only 2 lines I edited I believe, besides AddType for php.
Having gone over lots of apache config walkthroughs and such, I thought my router was to blame (verizon blocks port 80 requests apparently?). My router is a Verizon Fios ActionTec M1424WR. The port forwarding rule is setup as:
Networked Computer / Device: 192.168.1.250
Network Address: 192.168.1.250:8080
Public IP Address:
Remote Host IP Address:
Protocols: HTTP - TCP Any -> 80
WAN Connection Type: All Broadband Devices
But trying to load my public IP with :8080 just loads my router's config page. When I had the port changed to something else earlier (8095), it would just be not found.
Im using Slackware 12 with apache 2.2, php 5.2, mysql 5.1. I hope this is something obvious and im just a noob :)
