I am trying to make my home machine a webserver for a project I am working on. Here is my configuration
Windows XP Professional
I set up my IIS server 5.1 to listen the default web browser on port 200. I have also tried 1000 8000 9000 2333 etc.... When I type the url http://192.168.1.20:200/index.asp from my computer or any computer inside my network everything works fine and page is served up. When I try to do it outside my network it does not work. PLEASE NOTE I AM USING MY IP that is assigned to me from Optimum Online when I try from the outside. I also use the WAN IP on the inside and it works as well. I have tried everything.
DOES CABLEVISION block all web traffic on any port from home servers?
Am I doing something incorrectly?
I even removed my linksys router from the equation and tried without it. Still nothing.
The error I receive is "Page cannot be displayed"
Is there a log somewhere that would tell me if the request is actually reaching IIS at all?
Any help would be appreciated.
