Users can't go to the page but I can

Postby I need help » Sun Jul 06, 2003 12:01 pm

Ok I am new to Lil HTTP server. I have it all setup and when I run my server I can access every page. But no one else can. It will just give them a Page not found page (the regular internet explorer one not the Lil HTTP server one) I don't know why either. They just can't connect. I have my IP adress right and everything. If you guys could help that would be awesome.

If you are using a router for DSL or Cable Modem service, you will need to tell the router to send port 80 (web requests) to your computers local IP address. If you have DSL or Cable Modem directly setup on your computers network card, then the ISP may be blocking Port 80. Try another port like 8080. Then you would access the web server like http://your.ip.address:8080/, the :8080 tells the browser that it is to use port 8080 instead of the standard port 80.
