static ip question

HI Guys,

I have a static IP with my service provider.

im in the process of setting up a local web server using wamp for small projects.

problem is whenever i access my ip via a web browser it goes directly to this website

http://xx.xxx.xx.xx/homebase/signin?i=1377859

Which is my attached device (mystora.com : which is my NAS).

How do I stop this ip from pointing to my NAS drive.

Presumably, you have a router.

You need to modify the router so it forwards port 80 to the server and NOT the NAS.  I avoid NAS devices, so the following is speculation, but if the NAS supports UPnP then it MIGHT automatically configure the router so you may need to look into that...

Yes I have a router.

Ive disabled UPnP totally on the router.

now when I access the ip it goes to the router login page which is at 192.168.0.1

but I need it to go to 127.0.0.1 which is the wamp server.

No, 127.0.0.1 is the loop back address.  You won't get a web server working on that.

You need to configure the router to forward port 80 to the internal IP address of your WAMP server.  That address is NOT 127.0.0.1, rather, it should be something like 192.168.0.SOMETHING.
