I am unable access my webserver from internet. What to do?

By freaklie ·
Hey TR Buddies,
I am unable access my home made web server from internet. I have done following things to make the web server:

1- Installed XAMPP
2- Installed DYNDNS resolved Dynamic IP problem.
3- Firewall disabled.
4- Antivirus Firewall disabled.
5- Port forwarding done to the PC having XAMPP installed.

I am having Windows XP Pro Server Pack 2, 2002 OS.

Need help kindly guide me.

Did you do a reboot both server and computer for access?

You could look at your tcp/ip to make sure you have the correct settings.

Yes, settings are fine as I can access my website from my hostname which is provided by dynDNS. I have signed in for free DynDNS and free .tk account.

How do you connect to the Internet?

I would assume that you have a firewall rule to open port 80 and/or port 443?

You mentioned that you have port-forwarding enabled...do you mean you have a NAT rule for the LAN IP address of your server?

Yes I have used NAT rule for LAN IP address i.e. port 80 is opened and forward it to 192.168.1.33 which is where my XAMPP is installed. I can access my website by type hostname given to me by DynDNS into the URL but the problem is that i can't access it through domain got from .tk. I think that I am having problem with configuring .tk domain with DynDNS. I would also like to mention here that I have free accounts of both www.dot.tk and www.dyndns.com.

Spend some money.

Everything isn't free. Just because you have a domain name doesn't mean you have DNS service for it.

DYNDNS and several others offer DNS service for host names, but they aren't free. They're reasonably-priced, though, and all you do is
1)purchase the service,
2)put the name server names into the NS list for your domain,
3)configure a client on your server or router that will keep the dynamic record updated.

Maybe dot tk offers the same service too. The important thing is to have a DNS update client installed on your server that keeps the name server's IP address up-to-date.

What if I get some Static IP instead and put it into free domain of .tk. will it work?
