I can connect to the server locally using the WAN IP but when trying the exact same thing from outside I am not able to connect to the server.
My port forwarding on my Asus N66U is set up like:
<unusedport1> <pcip> 80 TCP <unusedport2> <pcip> 443 TCP
I would expect to be able to go to wanip:unusedport1 and see the index page.
What I've Tried
Access the site locally: I am able to go to pcip:80 and access the server as well as using the wanip:unusedport1 and acessing the server.
Check ports: I've used this port checker tool and been told that unusedport1 and unusedport2 are open.
Checked config files: The Apache config files are set at their default as "Listen 80" and "Listen 443" so they aren't listening for a specific IP.
Windows Firewall: I've set up incoming rules for Ports 21,80,443 in Windows Firewall as well as completely turned off the firewall and tried to access the page.
The error I get is "Could not connect to remote server"
Anybody have any suggestions for what else to check and/or try? It should work to forward a non matching port to port 80 correct? As in for wanip port 6403 to pcip port 80.
