Web server home PC

Posted 05 February 2010 - 07:48 PM

Well, first of all this is my first time trying to set up a web server. I have Apache installed and I need to know how to configure httpd to broadcast to the WWW on port 85. Now, I have the server running on localhost, but I can't see it on the WWW using my IP. What is the first thing I should check? I have a DSL connection (VPN) with an ISP supplied router. Is my ISP preventing me from serving?

Wrong forum.

Check the firewalls forwarding and the routers ports that are open. You also need your public ip, not the 192.168.1.1xx type, check http://www.ipchicken.com to find it.

Realistically the first thing you should check is the apache and ISP's manuals and terms.

You need to forward port 85 requests from your router to the server.

Why are you listening on port 85? Anyone wishing to view the website will be forced to add the port to the end of the address (URL), as port 80 is the default.
