I understand your desire to find an answer right away, but answers take time and research. Instead of filling up this page with comments, move over to the chat and talk there, or wait until answers can be given to you. Also for future reference, give as much info as you can relating to the question. The higher the quality the question the higher the quality the answer you will get. – KronoS Oct 20 '10 at 16:56

Your problem is not ip address related but rather port forwarding related. You have to forward the port range of the apache server from the router to the server. (Which as qroberts stated is port 80)

Change the remote administration port of your router from 80 to something different.

Forward port 80 on your router to point to the IP address of the machine where the apache server is located.

and where from i can change that? in router i cant find any port Forward menu can you guide plz – livetolearn Oct 20 '10 at 16:23
What is the model/make of your router? Did you want to DMZ the server where apache is installed? – qroberts Oct 20 '10 at 16:24
Without knowing the exact router you have it's impossible to give detailed instructions, have you tried searching your routers manual for port forwarding? – Jane T Oct 20 '10 at 16:24 here you go you can now change in my router – livetolearn Oct 20 '10 at 16:28
I would strongly advise NOT posting that on a public website. I cannot access it from here. It may be my works policy or it isn't allowing remote connections. Someone else give it a shot? – qroberts Oct 20 '10 at 16:28
