Go to control pannel
double click network connections.

select the internet connection on that machine right click select properties.

select the last tab on the top advanced...

if the box is checked to protect your computer and network the the firewall is enabled...
IMHO, it wouldn't be a good idea to diable it...
if it's not checked it would be a good idea to enable it.

click on settings...
you'll see a connection labled websever

click edit, now put in the address of the machine in the name or IP address of the computer hosting this service...

click OK,
then OK again and the apply...

now the port will be mapped from the outside to that machine...

for addresses from the inside, it might be that you are having a problem addressing your outgoing card in an ingoing manner trying to get inside from the outside.

To fix this you have two choices, either installing a DNS server on that machine that has a record for your hosted domain name so that your local machine looks on the local machine rather than querying the no-ip dns database...

or much more simply...
add a line to the file that can be found at c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

open it with notepad.

tell us when you have checked the firewall settings, (my instructions are for pre service pack 2).

and I'll check your website from the outside of your machine...

if the problem is accessing your external IP address use your internal one...

add


127.0.0.1 zombie-crew.myvnc.org

to the file, this will mean you cann access it internally...

external access still isn't working, cannot conect to port 80 (web service) so it must still be blocked on your firewall,

you can just turn the firewall off... and it will solve this problem you are having connecing to the webserver...


but it may cause a whole heap of other problems...



perhaps the problem is that your ISP blocks port 80 to stop you hosting a website...

try changing the port to something different..


inthe httpd.conf change the line that says listen 80 to

listen 8080 (it's in section 1 I think)...

now connect to http://localhost:8080

tell us when it is set up and we'll have another try at connecting from the outside.

ok, so im supposed to cahnge these to 8080 instead of 80?

# Listen: Allows you to bind Apache to specific IP addresses and/or
# ports, instead of the default. See also the <VirtualHost>
# directive.
#
# Change this to Listen on specific IP addresses as shown below to
# prevent Apache from glomming onto all bound IP addresses (0.0.0.0)
#
#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80

and...

# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.
# This can often be determined automatically, but we recommend you specify
# it explicitly to prevent problems during startup.
#
# If this is not set to valid DNS name for your host, server-generated
# redirections will not work. See also the UseCanonicalName directive.
#
# If your host doesn't have a registered DNS name, enter its IP address here.
# You will have to access it by its address anyway, and this will make
# redirections work in a sensible way.
#
ServerName zombiecrew.myvnc.com:80

is there anyway to find out which ones they block, contact them i suppose?

Listen 80

ServerName zombiecrew.myvnc.com:80


change to

Listen 8080

ServerName zombiecrew.myvnc.com:8080

the only way to find out what they block (if indeed any, is to scour their websiet or contact them, most ISPs don't advertise the little things like blocking services from their customers use.
