Have tried the following


Port Forwarding

Create the port forwarding rules to allow certain applications or server software to work on your computers if the Internet connection uses NAT.


Application Name

External Packet

Internal Host




IP Address

What happens if you access http://localhost off your PC (assuming your computer + server are the same thing).  Try turning off your firewall + antivirus and try that again.

Maybe try accessing from another computer on your network, see if your website comes up then.

Everything else is working fine inside the LAN.
i can see the server using another pc, problem is from the outside world.

How do you allow traffic(on a router) from outside to access a web server.
