    I can connect to the internet just fine, but whenever I try to connect to the address my computer is currently using, e.g., it won't let me. I have an Apache web server running, and I can't connect to it via typing into my browser.

    I've forwarded the ports, added exceptions to the firewall, and checked to see if a server was already running on port 80(it wasn't). I'm at a loss as to what this problem may be, and any help would be extremely appreciated. There's absolutely no reason this should not work.

    EDIT: I found out that it's something to do with my anti-virus(ESET Smart Security 5) which seems to block these things. Anyone know how to disable this?
