If you think it's Comcast throttling inbound port 80, you could try moving Apache to a different port (change the Port value in httpd.conf). To access it, then do: http://dans.homelinux.net:81/
If you did need it on port 80, you could always use virtual hosts (help: 1
) on Apache so you have a different website for (say) port 81 (the new location) and then on port 80, you put a page that redirects to http://dans.homelinux.net:81/
(using a meta refresh
or an Apache redirect
Remember, depending on the connection, with a 128Kbps uplink, you're going to transfer about 12-13Kbytes/sec max but I don't know what transfer rates you are achieving.
