I am encountering a very simple (by the looks of it) problem with Apache22.
To become familiarized with the configuration of the server I started off with a normal ports install, default config settings.
In the httpd.conf the only thing I toyed with was the Listen directive.
I set mines to:
- Code: Select all
The server itself is assigned with the internal IP adress of 192.168.0.50.
My objective is to see the "It Works!" message from the preinstalled [FILE]index.html[/FILE] file from another computer within the same network (by going to http://192.168.0.50). Which looks allright.
The next step is to see the "It Works!" message by entering the external IP of my router.
To accomplish this, I forwarded port 80 to 192.168.0.50 on my router. But here comes the problem which I cannot seem to solve, or to make up a clever Google query for....
When I access my server by using http://192.168.0.50 "It Works!". When I access my server by using [url]http://[external_ip][/url] "It Doens't Work!".
I'm pretty sure I must be overlooking something... Anyone out there who could give me the final push so I can move on with testing?
