I'm sure you've answered this question a million times and I apologize in advance...
I'm hosting a website on a win 10 machine using Apache (WAMP). I can access the website by way of localhost/[website]. In the past I was able to connect to the website that I host by way of another dynamic DNS service so I'm confident that the Apache (WAMP) server is configured correctly.
I bought the dyndns pro service and registered a domain per instructions.
I downloaded, installed and configured the dyndns updater.
I checked the windows firewall and the Apache server is allowed to accept internet connections on ports 80 and 443.
The network adapter on the win 10 machine I'm using as a server is configured with a static internal IP address.
I'm using a D-Link router, DIR-842, port forwarding is configured to this static IP, port 80 and 443. Dynamic DNS is enabled on this router and configured with the dyndns domain information.
I can't connect to my website. Anybody have any ideas? What did I miss?
The windows firewall on the server machine, the default configuration for the Apache (WAMP) server was to allow external connections with an option to allow internal network connections. I changed the default configuration to allow internal connections and now I have internet connectivity to my website.
I'm going to blame this one on a Horizon VH-2402S Fast Ethernet Switch which occupies a network topography position between the D-Link router and the server machine.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it. All it has to do is work, right?
