I am trying to setup a virtual host. So far it's working on LAN but when I try to access it on another network, it's pointing me to my router's interface. I have PROLiNK H5004N ADSL2+ Wireless Modem/Router. I am not that familiar with port forwarding so I think this is the problem. Anyways, here's my configuration(Router Features>Virtual Server Forwarding):

ServerName:   WEB
Protocol: TCP
Local IP Address:
Local Port:   80-80
WAN IP Address:   my.ip.add.ress
WAN Port: 80-80

Here's my virtualhost config:

NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "C:\wamp\www\web"

Here's my hosts file:   localhost

first always test with after any minor change with telnet command:

telnet yourpublicIP 80

if you get message connection timout you need to ckeck port forwarding.

on port forwarding configure always this way:

REMOTE IP: any if options or leave blank.

this is the basic parameters to enable port forwarding, just stay with the basics till work.

Thanks for the answer. I reconfigured my port forwarding to yours. I also added this line to my hosts file "my.ip.add.ress". I tried accessing through my browser and still no luck. It still points me to my router's interface instead of web server from I'm going to check and test everything later. Thank you! – nomonomo Jun 27 '13 at 2:47
