Need some help getting access to my server

Posted 22 November 2011 - 06:40 PM

Hello I'm in desperate need of help. I have recently installed Apache (httpd) server on my Fedora 15 workstation. I properly setup the server and forwarded my ports (http 80 and ftp 21) on my linksys Wireless-N router. However I still cant seem to connect. The router is connected to a Linksys CM100 cable modem which may be the problem. Does anyone know what other kind of configurations i have to make in order to access my home server from another network?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

If it is working on the local network, & not from the external, then I would suspect that your ISP does not allow for traffic on port 80. You would need to get a commercial grade service.

You can verify this with trace route.

You can also verify this by being on your internal network, after you've verified that you can reach the webserver, & use a proxy server, thus forcing your traffic outside/external & hitting your router. If it doesn't work again, either your router is not configured correctly, or like I said about, your isp does not allow for port 80 traffic.
