apache not taking external request
 
Hi there, wonder if someone can help me out. Think my cable modem is blocking http request coming from the web. I have a linux box doing masquerading and I'm able to access my server internally using my public IP. However, if i try accessing the site outside the network, I get a site not responding error.


My cable modem is a Motorola SB5100, when i access the configuration page of the modem. I don't see any option to block http traffic. The modem came from my ISP (Adelphia). Do you think if i replace the modem that would solve the problem?



Kev

Thx for all the help...

Do you have a firewall between your modem and the server? Are you forwarding port 80 to your server? You will need to forward port 80 in order for you NAT cable modem or firewall to pass outside traffice to your server.

Hey Ram, I found the problem. ISP was blocking port 80. Thx for your help.
