Outside access to local Apahce server
Authored by: pslambe on Dec 07, '03 09:37:25PM
I am NOT an expert at this, but I have gone through the same hassles with Apache, PHP, mySQL. I too have broadband access through a netgear router. My ISP (Optus) specifically prohibits web servers on home machines but I just wanted to get on the learning curve. After repeated problems I rang my ISP to be told that they block port 80 (and 8080 I think), use DHCP, AND use transparent proxies. I think its probably the latter which is giving you grief because basically whatever your Mac or PC reports as your IP address has been spoofed. At least that is what I understand to be occurring.
