Cool Apache and broadband internet servers

I run a server out of my closet that runs apache. In my old house, we had cable. I set up my router to DMZ my server, and it worked. I had a web server in my closet! In my new house, we use Verizon DSL, which has blocked port 80. I decided to use port 81. I then went to my router settings and forwarded port 81 to my server, and changed the config file for apache. I could not get onto my site. I typed in my servers lan address, and i could get on. I then became curious, and launched an apache server from my windows laptop and set it to port 81. I could access this server over the web via my dsl ip. I then went to my linux box and edited the services and inet files and designated port 81 as a www port alongside 80. I restarted the server, changed all my forwarding so the port 81 pointed to the server, etc. I can access the page via the lan IP, but not my dls' www ip. Any suggestions?

Hrm...maybe something is using port 81.

try to switch it to port 8080?

You can do a netstat (with one of the switches - I can't remember which ones) and i believe that will tell you what is running on all of your ports.
