Others can't connect

Recommended Posts

Unfortunantly, a problem I had with apache on another computer (I had fixed it, but now I do not have the file, and I do not remember how I did it), and it has repeated on my current one.

 

I am running Windows XP with a cable modem, using a routher, and a firewall. I am using Apache 1.3.23

 

I have it set to listen to Port 8000, so I connect on my computer with localhost:8000

 

For others to connect, I give them:

 

http://24.188.93.111:8000/

 

Yet, they cannot connect. I am very unsure as to what the problem can be, and I exhausted myself looking up and down, and if I look again, I\'m sure I won\'t find it, mostly because I\'m pooped. So I turn to you guys, tell me what might be wrong?

1. is your router directing port 8000 requests to the internal ip of your xp box?

2. is your xp firewall running?

1. How do I check?

2. No

 

I believe my cable modem has a firewall too, but by setting to 8000, that should have been eliminated. I don\'t understand why it won\'t work on my current comp... help appreciated.
