    help with port forwarding


    Well like the title says, i need help with port forwarding my linux server so that i can acces it from any computer, i have an ZyXEL NBG-416N Router, bought it new today, from the looks of my router i already forwarderd the correct port for apache 2, that is running on my linux server. But i still can't acces my linux server if i connect to it with my ip adress, here is a pic to show my router status:
    puu(DOT)sh/ha3n

    and here is a pic from a port checker that says that my port is still closed:
    puu(DOT)sh/ha8i

    my server is his local ip is
    192.168.1.56

    and my own ip is
    94.209.140.115

    i hope you guys can help me with this,

    regards,

    It seems that, if I directly connect my laptop server to my modem, and open port 80 on my moden, it does work, but i also seem that my dekstop pc, who is still behind my router, does not show up in the list of connected users, could the problem be somewhere in that area?

    You ISP might be blocking the lower ranges of ports. This is one way they are preventing the common user from running their own services.

    If your ISP is blocking, buying a new router isn't going to change a thing as they are blocking at their firewall not yours.
    You should ask them, then you will know.
