Apache httpd/RP114 router problems

I can't connect to my httpd server running on my computer behind my router for some reason. The router is configured to forward any ports the webserver uses, 8081 at the moment. I can successfully connect to my SSHd server running on port 22 on the same computer. I've disabled all filters and things in the router that might affect this. Come with suggestions though, I might have forgot something really stupid.

I can only access the webserver through localhost, and the LAN IP: router) does not work, neither does it if I use my external IP.

I can access the HTTP server running on the router(I configured it to use port 8080, and no WAN access), and also through my external IP from the LAN(not sure if it works now that I disabled WAN access). I can not remember if I can access it from the outside. I think I can't.

I do not know if I can access my httpd server if I remove the router.

Apache 1.3.29 (I should upgrade to 2.x, lazy)
Netgear RP114 3.26 (should be the latest version, quite old anyway)
Linux 2.6.1 (doesn't really matter as I can access my SSH server)

I also have a httpd server running on my other computer, which is running Windows XP, I can not access that one either.

Just ask if any more information is needed, and thanks in advance for any help.

You probably do not have loopback natting in your router. Try using a web proxy such as guardster to conduct your tests or ask a friend to try.

Yay, guardster worked!

I configured apache to listen to 8080 instead, and 80 too for the local network. I guess port 80 must really be blocked by my ISP.

Thanks for the help!
