Ok I have the server setup, its running slackware on
AMD Athon 64 3200
1 Gig Memory
250 Gig HD
My connection has a dedicated 3mg/s down and 1mg/s up
So I had to change the original game plan up a bit.
But my question is how to get access the file outside of my house
It works fine on intranet but I can't excess them outside of that.
You can try check your apache log (it should be in your apache installation logs/ directory) and verify there was an access to your server. If there isn't, then this mean, the port forwarding did not setup correctly.
I am not sure which firewall you are using, but for mine, I need to specify the TCP port to be open/accept for remote connection and map it to internal machine with the designated IP and TCP port. You should check your firewall manual as well.
It was the ISP, sorry for not explaining, I had a Linksys firewall setup and had port 80 forwarded to my local IP, but the ISP had blocked port 80 and had to go into my httpd.conf file and listen on a different port 8080 seemed to do the trick. Also had to open the port on my firewall.
Thanx for the help
seems the best bet is just paying for a dedicated box, centOS seems to work better for this purpose
