Title: To open your Server to the outside, you need to Port Forward and config Firewall
Post by: admin on July 27, 2007, 12:00:25 AM
1) Port Forward port 80 from the WAN-side to the local LAN IP that your server is bound to...

This task is performed under the router. You need your router IP address, and it's user/password combo. You also need the local system LAN IP [run 'ipconfig' from a dos box to get it].



My router is a Linksys WRT54GS, its default IP is 192.168.1.1, no user name, password 'admin'. My local LAN IP is 192.168.1.100.

http to 192.168.1.1 [this will be slightly different for other makes/models/configuration]

Menu 'Applications & Gaming'...'Port Range Forward' [this will be slightly different for other makes/models/configuration]

2) If you are running Windows XP SP2 or higher, you need to allow an exception for the \www\Apache22\bin\httpd.exe application, or Windows will block access from the outside.

This will take care of the router and Windows OS Firewall. Other firewall programs and anti-vir s/w might also need to be updated.

Note that this does not open up access to the web applications from the outside.

That task is explained here...
