I have just received static IP address from my ISP and I am trying to setup small experimental server on my home laptop which has Ubuntu installed.

curl http://117.218.XXX.XXX curl: (7) couldn't connect to host

"sudo ufw disable" But issue persist.
I am not sure configuration changes required on Dlink , Below is the config page of Dlink firewall
Can someone please help me with it.
