I have been trying to set up my own server and so far I have apache installed and configured correctly (at least I think so) but for some reason if people type in my ip into their browsers it doesn't take them to my server. I have tried messing around with the modem settings but so far I have only got it to work in a way that if somebody puts in my ip then he gets to configure my modem (after he has inputted the username and password). I have tried to figure out this for some time already. With my computer when I input my own IP address to my browser I get the view my modem settings.
Anyone of you guys know an answer to this problem?
Thanks in advance (and sorry if this is the wrong forum to ask this...)

Do you mean the Dynamic DNS settings in the modem settings or the DNS settings in Network Settings? (using Ubuntu Linux). if you mean the Dynamic DNS: humm not necessarily wanting this service to work. If you mean the Network Settings: do I have to add my own IP into the DNS Servers section? I remember trying this before though, but back then I might not have messed around with my modem settings enough...
your modem has been set to activate remote admin on port 80, this would be the same port that would be used by apache, either disable/change the remote admin on the modem, or else change the port used for apache.
