I am running ubuntu 12.04, with apache2.
My router configuration is set to forward port 80 to my local IP.
The problem is I can only access the server as localhost. Else it times out (from devices using the same network). I do not have sfw firewall enabled, neither shorefirewall. Nothing. It is very strange, what else could I do?

The problem is I cannot access from the same network, it must be from outside.
To fix it we could use hairpin NAT.
