Before I start, I should say I know a similar topic (http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=40&TopicId=20022) has been posted prior on this forum but "it is now locked" and I could not post my question there. Also, my issue relates to opening Port 80 on Vodafone Mobile Broadband Connectcard, not a router as the previous topic which is now closed.
I have Vodafone Mobile Broadband which I use via my Vodafone Connectcard. For many months now, I have been trying to use this broadband connection to serve up my webpages but cannot get it to work because port 80 is not open or some other problem. My Laptop is all setup correctly as I can immediately use it to run the webserver on my laptop if I use any other connection besides the Vodafone connection. I have been reading up all I can on the internet but no joy until I stumbled on the entry about this on this forum.
Am not sure what am doing wrong as each and everything on my laptop is etup correctly which leaves the connection itself. I am hoping that the member who has kindly helped the other users can help me. I am navigating to my laptop using the public IP address of my machine which is clearly different from the one shown on My Connection when I view it. The IP address shown in My Connection works only for localhost so I hope there is some way I can get this working. I only got this Vodafone account just to use for this reason and I can't seem to get it to work.
I have a screenshot I would have added to this post but can't see how to do this on this forum
Thanks for any help rendered in advance.
