    2 weeks of trying to get this to work


    ok i couldnt get apache 2.0 to work (came with mandrake 9.1) so i installed 1.3.27 (actually got it to install woohoo)

    heres the thing
    i can see the page if i type http://localhost but no one else can see it on the outside

    i know my LAN IP is 192.168.0.3

    i have a netgear fr 314 router and its set to allow ports 80, 8080 8000 (tryin em all) to go out via my lan IP yet it doesnt work....im gettin really ticked here. i have also configured the httpd.conf file to those different ports (one at time) restarted and still no one could connect (thought maybe my isp was blocking port 80

    Can anyone help??

    Make sure your router is forwarding port 80 to your machine and make sure you have them connect to your router ip and not your internal one.

    I have this experience as well, there, you are not alone. Kinda busy learning basic Linux stuff lately, so I just ignore it, Gonna try it again this weekend.

    I think there is an option called NAT in yr routher or server. try and config it. make it forward the global IP to yr apache server's network IP.

    Port Forwarding is the key here.
    I got a question relating to NAT regarding ports since we are on this topic. I too have a router and I forward some ports (let's say 80 for this case). Now, what I'd like to understand is, how does improve security? I'm thinking since port 80 is open, the system is still vulnerable.
