Depending on how you're set up, you may not be able to browse to your external IP from the machine itself. For example, I can't browse to my external IP, but it doesn't mean I can't host a website. If I try and browse to the external IP it will try and connect me to the external interface of my router. As the connection is being received from the private network, the port forwarding doesn't come into effect and I won't see my website.

Have you actually tried browsing to your machine from another machine on a different public IP address? And if you have and it still failed, have you set up apache to listen for connections on the external IP address. Alos have you checked that there are no iptables rules preventing incoming connections. From what I remember from installing it on my machine at work, the default rules are fairly restrictive.

As said above you cannot "see yourself from yourself" unless you configure loopback. The other alternative is to find a public proxy server and then set your browser to work through the proxy server and the other is mentioned above and that is use another server.

PAH-1020, First, you *knowingly* broke the rules to be able to post a URL, and then the first legitimate post you have is against the LQ rules and contains abusive language. This is your first and final warning. Please reread the rules you agreed to when signing up for LQ and make sure to abide by them. Thanks.
