    I've downloaded WAMP5 for Windows and everything works great under http://localhost/ and from other computers (192.168.10.100:80) in the network the server is in. My question is when I try to access from a computer off the network via my IP (65.12.190.98) or my domain (I use http://freedns.afraid.org/) I get nothing. Nothing happened when I tried to use IIS and Sambar instead of WAMP either. My ISP is Belllsouth. Do they block port 80 and or HTTP requests?!? I'm also behind a Linksys WRT54G Router that I configured port 80 on already though. I also tried port 81 82 and 83 but to no success. Never done this before. Please Help!

    Sounds like you understand the basics. You sure you got the router setup correctly.

    No im not. Went to port forwarding in router setup. I then opened port 80 both TCP and UDP for the server IP.

    What is the make and model number of the Broadband modem you are using? I am wondering if it might be using NAT translation as well. In which case you would have a double NAT translation. If you are using that Versalink modem, it looks like it is also doing NAT translation, which means you would need to setup and IP passthru on that as well.
