Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache on a Non-Standard Port - follow-up question.
Date Tue, 20 Jul 2004 02:32:12 GMT
Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply.

Currently, I have paid a third party dns provider, to do this and as a matter of fact, I have
configured my linksys router to do port forwarding to
port 8080 for example. Likewise, enabled DDNS Service

Now, everytime I check locally the site, for instance I could access
the site. And on the outside, could only access it
through and not

My problem is, since I paid for the service with Could your suggestion also be done with and using my linksys router? I don't see

Any thoughts on this would be highly appreciated.
Thanks again.
