I'm having issues making an apache page accessible over the internet.
Server: Ubuntu Server 11.10, Apache 2.2
I have registered a domain with dyn.com and have ddclient setup and seems to be working... (Externally i do a nslookup and shows my routers IP, ping does not work I thought it did once but unsure…)
Port forwarding is enabled on router pointing to server for port: 80..
No firewall enabled ATM.
I know the domain is linked to my server since I installed “Webmin” and can access “Webmin” fine externally via the domain name and the port.
Have a virtual host enabled on Apache listening on port 80, the apache site is accessible via the intranet so without updating my host file on another PC the domain will work and open the index file.
What do I need to do to make the site available on the internet…..????
Please let me know what information you require for trouble shooting…
It's possible your ISP is filtering port 80. One way to find out is to telnet on port 80 and observe the TCP protocol response (ex: RST) in Wireshark or a similar tool. Or you could just call them to find out.
Seriously it is more hassle than it is worth, pay less than a coffee and get onto a shared host, this will be far less than the cost of keeping a "server" running 24X7X365 in power alone. Even a modest 100W "server" is going to cost you about $0.70 a day to have turned on, so add it up, $20/mth or pay ~$5/mth for hosting.

Optus is useless when it comes to technical support, I have called them in the past and they did not even understand what ports were

No im using Apache.. i think it maybe my ISP blocking port 80 but the staff i end up with dont know..... I agree i dont think the staff i get know what ports are....
Well im currently keen on doing Unix server administration and learn to configure apache.... so im keen on setting up my own server as a learning bases... plus i want a web site to learn PHP and what not so i decided to link both the projects....
