Hi everyone,
I'm new to the server scene and need some help.
I'm sorry if you have read my problem on other forums but I haven't got a solution yet.
My setup is this.
Home network via broadband wireless network router.
3 xp pc's and a Ubuntu6.10/Apache2/Mysql/Php server.
I have a simple test page on the server, index.html in /var/www
I can view this from any pc on the network so Apache must be working.
However no joy from outside my network.
I have been to canyouseeme.com and found that my service provider is blocking port 80 but not 8080.
I have edited apache to listen on 8080 and set my router to forward 8080 to my internal ip address.
I have been to ipaddressworld.com to find out the current ip address at the time and tried that followed by :8080
I get an instant not found error.
If I place the server in the DMZ I then get a long wait followed by a timed out error.
Has anyone here had a similar problem.

make sure you can view the page on your network.

Assuming you have 192.168.1.100 for server
and
Assuming you have 192.168.1.101 on another computer

try

192.168.1.100:8080

if it fails, problem with apache config / server (firewall on ?)

success means problem with router

192.168.1.100:8080 from any pc on the network = success

89.241.214.186:8080 for instance = failure (that address changes)

Either the ISP blocks that port or the router is configured wrong.

check your router, as port 8080 is usually the admin login page to configure the router - even if you have told it to forward traffic on port 8080 the router still won't pass it to your apache server.

There are some routers that allow web interface access over the internet.

if your router has provided you with an interface you could tinker the settings with, you might want to check on the tabs if it is supported.

I have a linksys wrt 160n router and it allows me to just that. I hope that you could see that so that you could make changes without being connected to it.
