|The problem I am having is that I cannot access my Apache server from outside the network.|
I have apache server installed, and listening on port 9090. Going to http://localhost:9090 brings up the server page just fine. Based on CMD>ipconfig, I determined my local ip (192.168.1.xxx) [this is a wireless machine, by the way]. I enabled port forwarding on my router (linksys) on port 9090 to 192.168.1.xxx. I have disabled my router firewall and computer firewall for testing purposes. When i type in my external IP (determined from whatismyip.org) 24.xx.xx.xx:9090, I get a connection timed out error.
Note: I have also tried this with port 8080 (changing it in apache config file and on router port forwarding)
EDIT:When i check my port with http://canyouseeme.org/ i get a timeout error.
Also, i tried accessing it from another computer in the network (192.168.1.xxx:9090 AND 192.168.1.xxx) and that does not work.
Also, just our external IP address (no port added) brings up our router config page (just as 192.168.1.1 does)
