OK, so I live in an apartment that offers me internet, but I have no idea through who, or what type. I have all of my computers running through my router, that is plugged into the Ethernet port in my wall. I would like to run a web server, but am unsure if I have a public ip available to me.
I can access my server from within the network at 192.168.2.5 . I forwarded the port through my router, but if I try to access it through my public ip, the connection times out.
The only information I could find on my router's (belkin) configuration is that the WAN IP it reports is the same as my public ip. I am unsure if I am not connecting because I have configured things wrong, or because I am behind another firewall I can't access. Is there any way to discover additional levels of firewalls between me and the internet?
