Did you also specify there that incoming traffic for the program should be routed to the IP you set up in step 5? If not, there's the problem.
Huh, I don't even have the option to do so on that screen. It takes just the application name & port number.
BTW on Vista.
I have a quite a bit to learn obviously. I did get it to work but not in the way I was trying to do...
I allowed "Web Server" through in the routers firewall settings.
Then I took the routers public IP (not the custom IPv4 address I set up) and was able to access it outside of my local network, so http://public-ip/my-web-folder.
So that's confusing. I thought I was going to have access via my custom IP address. Another reason I'm interested in knowing if that's right is because the directory isn't protected. When I tried none of the instructed changes took place so that's why I was thinking that might not work.
I realize there are so many parameters to each setup - if anything strikes you though appreciate the help-
