I'm basically a self-taught, now inactive, web designer who still seeks to learn more about css (and some javascript) while pushing it to its limits: all as a part-time hobby between my Ph.D. studies.

comment Get Windows localhost (port 80) to forward to port 8080 for Apache service
@harrymc--Having made the changes, I cannot even get my WAMP server to start. Not sure why, but at present it prevents a full testing to know if it is going to work. I am also wondering if, in the first link, the ourdomain.dom is something specific to my computer or not (or is it just an arbitrary name, since he was dealing with subdomains... should mine be localhost?). Additionally, in the first link, the our.ip.addess for the routing to IIS is going to be the same for the Apache server, as they are on the same computer (just different port). That should not cause issues, right?

comment Get Windows localhost (port 80) to forward to port 8080 for Apache service
@harrymc--As I mentioned in my question, I'm not really a network person, so I have a couple of questions and need a little guidance. First, is changing my WHS to port 90 going to affect how the WHS functions as a home server? Second, the link you posted refers to trying to access subdomains, whereas I am not (rather, I'm seeking to access different local domains); so does that change anything? For guidance from the linked solution, I have some Apache knowledge, so #4-5 I follow, but I have nearly zilch IIS knowledge, so points #1-3 I'm unsure how to do (or even in my case if I need to do).

@MartinoDino--Thanks for your suggestions. I've just updated some info in my question that I believe now my main issue to be that my WHS computer is not even handling the request for my test sites, but rather my ISP proxy seems to be. If I can get that resolved, then I'll begin to find out if my other local parts are actually working.

@harrymc--thanks for the input. That may be useful, however, if you look at my latest update (just posted), I've discovered that my first main issue is that the test url's are never making it to my local computer, but are attempting to be handled by my ISP proxy. If you have some suggestions about circumventing that, I'm open.

@erikxiv--Well, the link looks promising. I also found this link which looked even more promising, as it appears to be doing the exact same thing I would like to do. The problem is, I still can't seem to get the forwarding to work. I'll post what I did in my question above.

@erikxiv--no, I am not sure about it. My problem was the fact that I'm in territory unfamiliar to me, so I did not know how to make it work if it could. I'll look into the link and get back to you.

Interesting. There are no log files for my attempted accesses, except in those cases where I was using the direct localhost access. So I turned off the WAMP server all together, and found I was getting the same results. Which would seem to indicate Apache is not handling the requests to begin with, but IIS is.
