As a start, you should try either posting in english on international mailing lists or find
a danish/norwegian/swedish mailing list.

You should also post at least some info on the actual configuration of your server, gateway,
DNS etc. Just telling us what OS and software you use doesn't say much about the config. Posting
more detailed info about the actual results when trying to connect from the "oustide" could
also help.

This indicates that the problem is not in your Apache config but rather in your DNS and/or
routing setup, but it's hard to know without knowing anything about your config. It probably
also means that it's kind of OT for this list.

The most common cause of this are DNS related errors. Does this happen both when people outside
your LAN uses domain adress and when they youse you're IP address? If using the IP address
works but not the domain address, check the DNS stuff.

Exactly what happens when you triy to connect from the outside? Can't resolv the host name?
Host name resolvs but connection is refused? Host name resolvs but you get no answer at all?

Do you have any kind of firerwall installed on this machine? If yes, have you opened the port
you run your Apache on?

Have you checked that the dynamic DNS record really points to your dynamic IP address when
your friends try to connect to your site?
