Can't get online, what do I do? Apache and httpd?
I have set my registrar to forward my domain, www.johntennyson.com, to my home ip, which currently is
220.127.116.11 -- technically this is a dynamic ip; however, it hardly ever changes so I am treating
it as a static ip and can always change the forwarding later on.
I have apache set to listen to all available adresses on port 80, so that I can have my router
forward to my local server as there are many machines on my local network.
I have my router setup in the port forwarding section to forward the HTTP (service name) to the
local ip of my machine (192.168.0.2) with the start and end ports of 80.
Results: not too good really, when I start apache with /etc/init.d/httpd start, it starts. OK, good
for now. When I point any browser that is connected through our router to the local ip address of
the server (192.168.0.2) then I see the web page that I want the world to see. Good Again.
The bad stuff :( . When I try to enter my ip manually in any browser I get a message reading: "The
connection was refused when attempting to contact 18.104.22.168." The really strange part, though,
is that when I attempt to connect to www.johntennyson.com--and you guys can check this out and tell
me if I'm wrong--that it says connecting, transferring data; however, no webpage is displayed, and
no connection refused message.
Ok I've read alot about port 80 being blocked by the isp, which I can check and it seems to be
blocked; however, with the above setup, what can I do to change to a different port. I am new to
server setups and don't know what it means to use 8080 or another port. Not sure how to turn them
on and assign them, etc. When I run the command "nmap -p 80 22.214.171.124 I get a message that the
port is closed". When I run "nmap -sT 126.96.36.199" I see that the only open port is 5432 running
the postgres service...hmmm. When I run "nmap -p 80 192.168.0.2" for my local ip address I see that
port 80 is up and running.
Can anyone help me getting my site online. I really don't understand why this isn't working.
Although, I think that it might be a problem with how I set my router, because I see the
sight with local IP...:(
Thanks for your help...

Wrong :) I can see the webpage saying "Comming Soon JohnTennyson.com"
