Access guest web server from outside LAN

Postby edhkim » 12. Mar 2010, 00:37

Hello friends,

I have VB 3.1.4 running on a mini with SL Server which is hosting a bitnami appliance. The guest is configured for bridge networking and when I start the VM, I can successfully access the web app from any computer on our internal network at http://192.168.1.x. However, when I try to access the same web app from outside our network, I can NOT access it. I have a dd-wrt router that is configured to forward port 80 requests to 192.168.1.x

Here's the part that's killing me. When I launch the same virtual appliance on a VBox running on a Vista host, I can access it from outside my network no problem with the same router configuration. Any thoughts on what's going on?

Thank you for your time.

Make sure the x part is properly routed, use some external port testing site to see if the port is really open, some ISP block port 80 by default.
