I am having some major problems with people trying to connect to my web server I am hosting thru XAMPP Light. I insta;;ed the program as directed by the ReadMe, I forwarded the ports correctly, ( I do know how to forwarded them fine, I run game servers) as well as forwarding them in the Windows Firewall. I asked my freind to connect to my External IP, and the page will not display for him. I can access it perfectly from inside the Network, just any person from the outside can't. I know for a fact I forwarded eveything properly, and just for the heck of it, I disabled the windows firewall AS WELL AS the Router securtiy on this PC only, yet still it will not work. I am seriouly getting tired of doing this. If you have something that might help me, please do.
I have a Cable Connection Thru a company called Cox Communications
I have WindowsXP Pro with SP2
And I have a Linksys Cable/DSL Router '
