Can you confirm that localhost:90 works?

changed the port number to 8080 to play around.

http://localhost:8080/ - works - works - my port was open when i used 90, but now this failed.

one prob solved --
Success: I can see your service on on port (8080)
Your ISP is not blocking port 8080

Rule of thumb is you wont get to say if it is directed at your external IP from within your own lan due to route loops.

If you edit \windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

And put localhost then it will.

However this won't tell you if people outside will get in. Though you cant see it, I suspect those on the outside will if you have a domain forwarding to your current IP (if not static)

And yes, that port forward for 8080 is correct if your PC is the virtual server it is attached to.
