HELP! I can locally browse my server, but my friends cannot.
« on: December 14, 2005, 08:21:16 PM »
I am new to this program. I read through the FAQ to find the answer to this. I tried the first 2 options. I think it is the router or proxy thing. How do I fix it. Thanks.  :?

I think it's your router.
Tell us your router model/name and we will try to help you. :smokin:

Whats the router?
« Reply #2 on: December 14, 2005, 08:36:00 PM »
Is the router you are refering to the thing that gives me the internet? Cause I have a Belkin router, it sends wireless signal up from my other PC to my PC I use HFS on.

By the way thanks for the quick reply  :)

Try follow this guide here:

Port 80 may not work because it may be blocked by your ISP so try a higher port.

rejetto

There are always router questions on how to port forward.

I suggest you make a STICKY and include this EXCELLENT site below that shows you how to do it, step by step,  for a large variety of routers.

I always used that site to help other users.
Making it sticky would be very helpful.
Edit: I made another post about it and I hope rejetto will make it sticky.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, I went to the website you told me to configure my router, but first it saied I have to go and make my ip address static. I type into run 'command and this came up:



How do I overcome this, cause I tried to forward my port without doing this first but it didn't work, so I thought I had to set my ip adress static, please tell me how to.

Thanks  :D

Sorry, I am new to this forum and dont know how to put sticky.  :?:

I know how to overcome that problem:
Just open CMD and not COMMAND. (Start -> Run -> CMD)
Anyway, I posted another topic about the routers: http://www.rejetto.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2622
Only rejetto and Mr. Anon can make topics sticky.

We would be glad to help if we can.  BUT if you are going to supply screenshots to help solve your problem, PLEASE make them big enough so we can see what they are all about!!  All I get here are small thumbnails that are illegible.
