|I have created a simple one page web site. I have it hosted on my own server with the abyss web server. There is also a router in the mix. I do not have a domain name but I make note of whatever my current external IP address is. I also make note of the internal IP address I get from the router. I added a rule to the router to forward the packet to the internal IP address of the server PC on port number 1000. I can only access the page from the internal network. What am I doing wrong? I do have a firewall on the server but I am not getting any messages that a request is coming through.|
The way I ubderstand it is this: your external IP comes to the router and the router uses the gateway address and adds port 1000 to it and then forwards to the internal address you specified. Is this correct? Thanks.
P.S. I am trying to access the page externally by using this address construction: 96.x.x.x:1000
