    Your internet service provider may be blocking port 80.
    it is a common practice.

    Go to GRC*|*Gibson Research Corporation Home Page**

    They will portscan your IP address. If 80 is closed,
    it is blocked and you can't be reached.

    You need to supply more information. Is your external IP bound on your webserver? Or do you have a fw/router that the external IP is bound to and which NATs your internal traffic?
