  • Installing Wamp On Vista

    My question is stemming from this article on how to install apache or wamp rather on vista.

    http://www.petri.com/install_wamp_server_on_vista.htm

    My problem is this. I followed this article to the T. I still can not view my directory from any remote computer when I put http://myipaddress/ . I also tried http://myipaddress:80 .

    I configured my httpd.conf as stated on the page as a starting point.

    <Directory />
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
    </Directory>

    Still nothing from a outside view. I can however view locally from http://192.168.15.126/ , http://localhost/, and even at http://myipaddress. Is there something else I have to do to in order to accept incomming remote requests?

    Oh I have also disabled my firewall during a few test runs in a attempt to get it to work. Notta. Has anyone had a simular problem or know how to fix.

    my first thought is a firewall or a virusscanner which is blocking inbound port 80.
    Have you opened the correct port on the correct profile on Vista?

      Depends on what the firewall is but you'll probably have to setup a port forward to direct http traffic to the host PC or setup a web publishing rule if it's ISA server.

      Also try running a port scanner to ensure that port 80 is open for _inbound_ traffic. It's obviously open for outbound or you couldn't browse the web. Shield's Up at www.grc.com is pretty good.

        Another reason could probably be your ISP blocking inbound http traffic!!

          Maybe the TS should tell us what the "outside" is...
          Is the outside the internet or an other client on the network
