Default ooopps - forgot about this thread - sorry

- you must restart after any/all changes to Apache config file to have them go into effect.
- use IP to avoid DNS issues. I use Zoneedit for free DNS services and loosely monitor my IP for changes (which my ISP avoids doing so they can more easily track useage)
- if you can't see the site by putting the IP into your browser I would look at the router configuration (it's not directing you to the web hosting machine)
- putting your IP into your browser directs you to the router ... where it stops because it is the device with that IP address and the router isn't configured to point to an internal LAN device. (interesting - does it pop up the usename/password dialog box? If it does - put in a complex password in the routers configuration options to be safe!!)
- you will have to change the http porting only IF your ISP is blocking 80 and 8080.
Open Port Check Tool
- you will need a static IP on the web hosting PC
- for port forwarding in the Linksys look here: PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall
