Question Apache issuses

I'm running Fedora 3.0. I had Apache running for one night but now it times out when trying to access it from outside my network. Internally it runs fine. I can get to my web site by typing http://localhost and also by typing my external ip address but if I try from outside my cable connection it times out. It worked the first night I had it setup since I have cable and DSL running in my house but now it just times out. The router is setup to port foward to 80. I have my servername as my external ip address and I have for the listen command listen 80. Anything I can check before I go crazy? It wouldn't be so bad if it never worked but it did for one night. The only thing I can think of is the access permissions isn't setup correctly.

I ran portqry.exe on my home macine from work and it returned this error:

TCP port 80 (http service): FILTERED
portqry.exe -n xx.xx.xx.102 -e 80 -p TCP exits with return code 0x00000002.

Does this mean the ISP is doing the filtering or I have something setup incorrectly? Thanks

a lot of times that is possible... i would recommend you to setup your httpd.conf to listen on port 8080 or something different than 80

this a lot of times is done by the isp to prevent any web servers from being ran.. evidently web hosting private websites takes up an unimagineable stress on thier servers.... (when they see that you are using up your whole 25kbps upload bandwidth... i mean.. come on...)

luckily i don't have that problem and i am able to host sites without problem.

Which ISP do you use? It's strange that it worked for one day and stopped working the other. I know optimum online blocks port 80, it was a pain

Something simple you could check is the IP address that was assigned by your cable modem.
Remember most cable modems provide dynamic address (not static). So if it worked one time with a certain IP and not again, it is probably due to the fact that your original IP address was reassigned and a new address was assigned to you... start there and let me know.

It must have been port 80 was being blocked. I changed to port 999 and it works fine now. Now one more question. Since i got it working I'm using the free port forwarding from since that is where I bought my domain name from. But when I go to my web site using the it keeps showing the ip address and port instead of the web site URL in the address bar. I tried setting up masking thru godaddy but that didn''t work. Any ideas? Thanks

P.S. I do have a Dynamic IP address but it hasn't changed in over a year now. Also I'm only using the web site for friends and family so it shouldn't get alot of traffic. Also I just got upgraded to 3.0/768k speed.
