Hey there guys, how is everyone doing?

Ok, so here is my problem. I'm trying to run a webserver on my computer, so I can host a web site which I have done before, just not on this computer. This is what is happening:
Every time I run apache everything goes OK, and if I try to connect to my website locally, everything works like it should, now if I try to connect to my website from a computer outside my network, I get my router login page every time. I have tried port forwarding it many times, using port 80 and 443, but the result is always the same, I end up in my routers login web page. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? Any comments/ideas are welcome, and thank you for taking the time to read this.

I assume you are using NAT and your server has IP address from private network range.

Does your router use the same port 80/443 for its web interface? If so, try to change it (e.g. 80 -> 81, remember that port to be able to configure your router Smile). Port forwarding should work now.

Change the router port to 81 or something else

For most Dlink router this setting is found at Tools > WebPort

Thanks for all the replies guys! What was happenign was, my router uses port 80 for its remote log in, so everytime I used my IP it automatically redirected me to the log in web page. Thanks for all the help guys!

PS: I use a Belkin F5d8230-4 For future reference if anyone ever has this problem.
