I have been trying to run the Webserver from my home machine, and have configured the modem accordingly. but still not able to make it work.

I have WAMP installed, and my PC ip is, Once I "Put Online" WAMP, I am able to run localhost from "", So I think Localhost is not attached to my machine IP,

I have opened port 80 on my modem to forward the request to my local ip.

My modem model is "ZXDSL 831IIV7"

I tried to run from my WAN Ip on my local machine it always asks me for the modem's username/password, and if I run it from proxy or is says the site is down.

This could be caused by having your modem's WAN side web interface enabled. Check and make sure that it's turned off for WAN, but enabled for LAN. Some modems come with both WAN and LAN web interfaces enabled. Enabling the WAN side is a bad idea whether or not you're trying to run your own web server. – Vickash Nov 12 '11 at 2:26
"Remote Management" is what you are looking for, there will be an option that allows you to remote manage your router from the internet via a web gui – Paul Nov 12 '11 at 2:30

@Paul No I am not look remote management.. I just want if i open my ip from another computer i goes to my localhost where I am running a prject. – Unknown Nov 13 '11 at 5:11
I mean't you need to look for "Remote Management" in your router and make sure it is turned off. Though I suspect the reason might be your ISP blocks incoming http connections. Have you checked? – Paul Nov 13 '11 at 8:32
