hi all

I am using xp pro and I installed apache2triad on my computer.  I would like to use my computer as my own web server and I opened ports 443 – 80 – and 3306 on my modem

using virtual server.  But when I type my ip address from another computer I can not reach my apache server.  It gives the error “The page can not be found”. I diverted modem interface port to  8080. Would you please explain me the steps, PLEASE?

Are these internal servers or external ones?

You can verify Apache is working by going to http://127.0.0.1/

First culprit would be Windows Firewall or another Firewall make sure they are all disabled. As your using a modem? you shoudlent need virtual servers which would make my conclude your using a Router (do you have more than one machine on your network?) if so try your internal IP address from both your machine and another machine on your network.

If your trying your Internet IP Address from within your lan it may also not work as a lot of routers wont map DNS for yur own IP internally only externally.

Try going to http://www.megaproxy.com/ and doing http://<your ip/ you can your external ip by going to www.whatsmyip.com.
