When I am trying to access my server through my IP adress/localhost/ all of thoes are working fine but when I am trying my external IP I get:


You don't have permission to access / on this server.

I was looking for guide referring to the external but I only found to the localhost, If any one know some guide about fixing this problem referring to the external IP I will be very thankful.

Edit: I found 1 guide until now referring to the firewall, The firewall is not the problem.

Are you using apache? If so, check the config files for your server.

On one of my sites, I require a login unless the ip is; This lets me run a pdf generator service on output of certain pages. From your description, it seems your website is acting as though it is denying everything except from localhost.

Check the /etc/apache2/sites-available/YOURSITE file, and look at your VirtualHost settings.
