Port forwarding just isnt working... Apache / xinetd Please help!
Heres my dillema. I got my Apache going, but my Isp blocks port 80. I edited the httpd.conf and made it from 80 to 8080.
Now, I have a router, but the router doesnt have any port forwarding options. Ifconfig tellls me that my ip is 192.168.254 (internal). When I access whatismyip.com , that tells me 151.198.153.xxx
Since the router doesnt have any port forwarding, I had to take things into my own hands and use xinetd. I found someone that had a situation very similar to mine and they had sucess with the following...
disable = no
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
user = nobody
wait = no
port = 8080
redirect = 192.168.254.xxx 8080
So I added that as a file, then restarted xinetd. Now I should be able to get access at (h)ttp://151.198.153.xxx:8080 right? Well I cant. Ive spent alot of time lookin and askin around, nobodys been able to help me on this one. If you can provide some assistance, please do so, its much apprecaited! Thank you!
