Default port forwarding not working


I'm trying to set up port forwarding on my router and it doesn't seem to be working.

Please see the attached screen shot titled "port forwarding rule.jpg". This shows the rule I have setup to forward HTTP requests to my server. I have it set to ports 80 and 81 for both the LAN and WAN (not sure if this is right), TCP for the protocol, and for the server address (which I've verified is correct).

If you have a look at the other attachment (titled "port forwarding options.jpg"), you will see what kind of options my router gives me for setting up port forwarding. One thing I've never seen before is start and end ports for BOTH WAN and LAN. Not sure if it should be the same for both.

In any case, it's not working.

I set the A record with my registration company to, which I got off www.whatismyip.com, so it should be pointing to my router.

Can anyone think of why it is not working?
