    I have installed suse 10.1 ("The Perfect Setup - SuSE 10.1") plus the ISPconfig and all works fine but only on LAN. If I check the tool the ports return for example:

    Error: I could not see your service on xx.xx.xx.xx on port (80)
    Reason: Connection timed out

    testing this with a friend over the internet, same results, could not reach the server.

    Port 80 (tcp/udp) is forwarded to the server IP on router. (No linux firewall active)

    any help with this ? do I need to forward some more ports to the server machine ?

    thanks alot

    ok I made a change to the router's port forwarding. Changed:

    external port 80 to > 6969

    and the check tool can see my service on port 6969

    but an external internet user gets taken to the Shared IP page.

    I am working on it but any help would be appreciated.
