I've been trying to install Apache on my windows XP Home box upstairs in order to create a local webserver in my house for mostly personal use and everything seems fine except that when i try to see the web page from my laptop through an internet connection (my laptop through my cable modem back in through the modem to my webserver) I get nothing from my browser. I can ping my outside interface (on the cable modem) and i can ping the domain name (which is attached to the outside interface using dynamic DNS) but I can't connect to the server from outside. I have a static ip address on the pc upstairs and I am forwarding traffic to that address on port 80 through the cable modem/router. I also have McAffee installed on my pc but the firewall is disabled as is the windows firewall on the server pc. Any ideas?
I'm thinking I might be pinging the outside interface without actually going out to the internet so I'm off to a coffee shop to try to establish an actual internet connection to my home pc.
Thanks so much!
Windows XP Home on the server, either Linux RedHat 12 or Windows Vista on the laptop
