    Internet Users cant see my server....
    I cant remember what i did to enable it or if i did anything to enable it, but right now when someone out in WWW land navigates to my ip it just is a no show. I Can see it via the ip from my computer (cause we are on a lan) but no-one else outside my lan can see it.
    Yes it is the first computer on the internet, ie the server box that shares the cable connection and has a switch inside it.

    Im stumped. Im using apache 1.3.x, php 4.3.3

    Is this anything to do with the old isur and iwam accounts.(Windows XP Pro obviously.)

    Any help would be great

    Are you sure you are using the right IP?

    You could try getting a subdomain from www.dyndns.org.

    I am extremely confident that is the correct ip.
    I can use it for accessing the server via my lan, but know one outside the lan (eg WWW) can see it.
    I have used this ip as my net connection for a while now, im sure of its address


    Sure, I will try the dyndns thing...

    Any other help would be great!

    The problem sounds like it lies in the router if your Lan can see it, but the outside world can't. There should be a config panel yuo can log into on your router, you may need to direct http requests to the server's lan IP address.

    What LAN are you talking about then that people can see your site on?

    Also, I moved this out of the PHP forum to the "Domain Names and Hosting" forum.

    Whoops, wrong forum. guesss i was posting php stuff earlier...

    I have a lan at my house.

    Apache is going now. When people outside my house lan connect to me via my ip or dydns.org address it works.

    The lan at my house is like this
    Code:
    CABLE MODEM
            |
        SERVER
          /|\
        /  |  \
    PC1 PC2 PC3
    Each pc can see the server with apache fine. The problem i have now fixed was that people outside the lan couldnt see it(eg. Other net users)

    I have resolved the problem. Thanks.

    There's 2 different ways to install apache on a windows box, you probably picked the port 8080 option instead of the port 80 option.
