I have searched on Google and here as well, I'm trying to put my apache2 server running on my Windows 7 machine online for public access.
I have a bell 2wire modem/router and am behind a NAT, I have forwarded port80 to my computer.
I cannot however access the server from local ip or my public ip address. The only computer that can currently access the webserver is the computer it is running on, via 127.0.0.1
I also am 99% sure there are no conflicts on that port. However i'm not positive how to verify that.
I know I have to be missing something here, I can't imagine this is that hard to do.
Please excuse the lack of information, I'm not by any means a professional IT person. I have a group of clients overseas and I'm trying to demo some code, so this does not need to be a secure or permanent solution. Once my application is ready to go live I will invest the time setting up a proper stand-alone server (or more likely hire someone to do it for us).
