Configuring Apache

Okay, I installed Apache on Windows XP Home.

If I go to http://127.0.0.1:8000 I get the default Apache page.  To be doubly-sure I found the html page and modified it slightly, then refreshed...and my changes showed up.  So Apache appears to have installed successfully.

However, when I try and access this page from outside the firewall it does not work.

I know many IPS block ports like 80.

If this is the case.....what are my options?

You need to open port 80 on your firewall and possibly enable port-forwarding to port 80 on the machine that's hosting apache if you are using a router.

The method for doing this varies greatly depending on your DSL router, so you might want to consult the documentation for your hardware.
