It's odd that you didn't use the two forward slashes in your posting for
http://, because that should not be a legitimate URL in a web browser.


Any IP is valid, no matter if it is used statically or dynamically.


Unless you have access control filters on your web server (you can test
by trying http://localhost <http://localhost/>  on your server), you may
be running into firewall issues on your host running the web server
and/or with your network provider/ISP not allowing public web servers on
their network.


Also, the time honored test is to telnet to port 80 on a remote computer
to test network connectivity and that the server is up and listening.

Hi everybody,

I have a simple question (I think):

I've got the apache 2.2 running on my computer, I know my IP at the
moment (by and I was trying to access my server,
like this: 
http:\\, from another computer on the internet. And it
doesn't work. Later, I tried the tomcat, like this:
http:\\, and nothing happens as well.

Am I doing anything wrong? How can I make my server visible to the
world? Do I need a real IP (buy one), or my dynamic IP can do it just

Thank you in advance.
