comment Cannot curl webserver from outside network
Thanks for the help everyone. Closing this. The page now loads completely, but sometimes barely. This symptom as well as the traceroute definitely points to an ISP issue.

@Paul, ok it's suddenly working - sorta. The page prints out "hi", as intended but I still see "Resolving host" as chrome is waiting for something to load. Definitely feels like something wrong with my ISP.

@Paul, I did a traceroute to my external address and it failed within comcast's network, before ever reaching my router. I think this might be a problem with my ISP?

@Paul, a curl from the vm to asdf.com took 6 seconds. a curl from the host of the VM took .167 seconds. It is interesting to me why there is a big difference.

@ekaj, yup, I can! In that case, I can use either the external IP or the internal IP address, and both work! The only other thing I can think of that might be an issue is that my external network right now is a mobile hotspot with verizon. Not sure if they would block anything. But seeing as how requesting the wrong port changes from hanging to "quitting" immediately, it seems as though my packets are still getting through to the router at least

I'm running python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8888

@ekaj, then why can I access the webserver at the local ip of 192.168.1.100:8888 from another machine on my network? I'm not accessing 0.0.0.0:8888.

ok this might be a red flag, but when i do netstat -tpln on the webserver machine (a bridged VM), i see that the service is running on 0.0.0.0:8888. Is that an issue?

@ekaj, basically the same as curl. the correct port hangs but a random port immediately quits.

@Paul, I disabled the firewall on the VM running the webserver, and host machine running the VM, and the router. Not feeling safe right now.

Thanks, but I am positive I have the correct local IP.
