Can't Access My Local Web Server By Its External IP

I have a local web server that I want to make available outside of my local network of two computers. I configured NAT at my router, configured the firewall. I Typed the external IP and got nothing, while I still was able to access my web server by typing "localhost", I tried both IIS and Apache, but what is interesting is that fact that the other people can access my web server via that external IP, I just cannot access it from my local network.

Updating Access Databases On Local Web Server
I am using Windows XP Pro, and since I updated to Internet Explorer 7 I am having problems getting web sites to work on my PC in Internet Explorer using the local IIS web server. These web sites are using ASP and Access databases.

The two errors I get are:

Operation must use an updateable query.


Cannot modify the design of table 'TABLE_NAME'. It is in a read-only database. (they are not read only!)

Does anyone know how I can get this working so I can test my web sites locally before uploading them to the live sites?

Opening Up Local Access
I have a script running on my server that has access via port 1031, but I would like to block access to it from the public, and instead allow access only through a php proxy script on my server which will connect to port 1031 via (i.e.

So some may be thinking why? Currently users gain access by heading to . However I would now like to include adverts along side the script (but can't physically make adjustments to the script as the company that made the script has vanished of earth)
So the only way I can think of doing this, is by having the adverts in an Frame next to the proxy script.

So does opening up access via just for this case, give me security problems?

Managing Local Root Folder Without Being Able To Access It
I'm planning a website at the moment but I'm wondering about a slight issue, regarding the local root folder of a website.

Currently, I'm using Dreamweaver to create a website and I have had no problems of uploading my files to a site through Dreamweaver before. But I will not have access to my computer for about one month every year. However, I have a laptop available during that month. But since my local root folder is located on my stationary computer it seems impossible for me to, in any way, use that laptop to manage my site (upload new files to the server).

We require a server with 10+ IP addresses (Each one with a separate OS and external IP Address, i.e

This is to be used as an added security level for our employees logging into our system from outside the office. Our system monitors the IP Address and we need to restrict access to certain items depending on the IP. We basically would like to set up multiple VPS on one server.

Can you confirm how this would work?I know we can buy a Windows VPS for around £15, but we need multiple of these (10-20)and figure our own server might be the way forward.

Mailshot And External Mail Server
way of going about the following:

I have a client who has hosting with another company for their website and they have their own internal MS Exchange server for email...

In order to switch the hosting to one of my servers they just need to alter the A record for the website to my webserver's IP address at the registrar - correct?

They also want to start sending a "mailshot" to existing clients - what is the best way of doing this? I have no experiance of Exchange Server so I am thinking of running something simple like phpList on the webserver but how can this be configured to use their Exchange Server?

I am thinking that if I just setup phplist as normal then the emails it sends would bounce, is the trick to setup phplist differently or to change the servers DNS settings for that domain?

the server is running CentOs and cPanel

Server Load - Balance With External Host
I have one dedicated server that hosts a PHP/MySQL highly dynamic site. In peak periods my site is starting to get high load (still very manageable but enough to warrant thinking about the future). My site is mostly images - photo gallery type stuff.

I've thought about using Amazon WS to host images from my site but it works out too expensive as do other similar Content Delivery options.

From what I can tell, when the load is high, mysql CPU usage isn't too bad, it hovers around 20% and peaks to 60% every 20 seconds or so, so my assumption is that the load is partly from apache (I see lots of apache processes in peak periods).

I am considering just get a cheap VPS hosted elsewhere that will be used as a static image/file server to release stress from my main server- How much stress would this help release?- Any other suggestions on solutions?

- I would have to do quite a bit of work to my application to ensure images are posted to this server and not my main server which seems a pain (or cron these tasks).

Different Local Remote Server Types
I cannot find a suitable forum for this query so here goes on this one!

I am doing a charity site as a voluntary exercise. They currently host with Eclipse who have the Zeus server (site developed in Frontpage).

This is not an open source server. Thing is, what are the issues of say developing on my loacal machine (apache or IIS5) and having the remote being Zeus. I use Dreamweaver 8 for developing.

I would of thought this does not matter as the server technology is transparent and down to configuration files. The directory structure both ends can be the same.

Am I right to go ahead and not worry about this?

Connecting To Local Server With Virtual Machines
How do you go about setting up virtual machines so that they can see sites hosted on the host machine?

I've got Virtual PC 2007 and the disk image that MS supply for testing IE6 on Vista machines and I'm having trouble accessing my local Apache server (set up with XAMPP). Until recently I was able to set the XP VM's LAN settings to use a proxy server with the IP address of the host machine, but I got migrated to ADSL2+ yesterday by my ISP and now that's no longer working.

To access my sites locally, I set up httpd.conf like this:

PHP Code:
<VirtualHost *:80>  DocumentRoot "C:PathToFolder"  ServerName siteName.local</VirtualHost><Directory "C:PathToFolder">    Options FollowSymLinks    AllowOverride None    Order allow,deny    Allow from all</Directory>

and then in Windows hosts file I add siteName.local.

So what's the best way of getting the host and VMs to talk to each other?

Cannot Access Server
I have a little problem with either my server or my connection. For some darn reason I will be doing FTP uploads on small PHP files or viewing the forums on the server and then everything will start timing out. Yesterday this happened I would be able to get on the server from time to time for short amounts of time. After about 3 hours is went back to normal. Tonight, however, it did the same thing but I have no access to the server and it's been like this for about 4 hours. What could be causing this?

Server Access Denied
I have a strange problem that I encounter sometimes. I have 3 websites on my hosting account. About once a week, I will try to access one of those sites and I will get a timeout or connection error in my browser. I will not have any problem viewing any other websites and as soon as I restart my computer, I can view my sites again.

It seems like either my computer, wifi router, isp or webhost decides to block me from accessing any of my 3 sites for no apparent reason. Restarting my computer fixs this. My ip does not change when I restart my computer so I do not know why it would suddenly allow me acces again but it does.

What is this problem likley to be? A bug on my computer, a bug on my server? My isp being retarded? No one else seems to have any problems accessing my site, I would guess it is a local issue. What I can not figure out though, is why it only happens to my own websites on my hosting account. This never happens when trying to view any other websites except my own(on my hosting account). This cannot be a coincidence. It is a big mystery to me.

My PC Is Blocked. Cannot Access To My Server
Yes, cannot access my server with my PC. Tried everything but no avail. I confirmed that the server is up and running, everyone else can access it.

Here is what has been done so far:Cannot access to server after my FTP program automaticly tries to connect few times with wrong password. Fine, my IP will be flushed in 10~20 minutes tops. But no, after an hour still cannot access.

Submitted a ticket to the provider. They have flushed the Iptables, stopped the firewall, and added my IP address to allowed hosts file.

I have stopped the firewall in my PC. Flushed the DNS cache and restarted the windows.
Can use internet without a problem. Can access any website w/o problem except my own server.

Can anyone think of anything causing this?

Network Access Only Server
I am wondering how powerful of a computer/server I'm going to need for a project for work.

The server will only be accessible over the companies LAN, it will most probably need to be running Windows, because that's what the rest of the system runs. Even though I'd rather have it Linux. The server will be running Apache, PHP, and MySQL.

It will need be accessed by around 100-200 workstations (200 on the far out side max).

They don't need to write to the database. Just read. So possibly only 1 to 2 MySQL queries per page. PHP will be of course used to generate the pages.

So how powerful of a server that's just dedicated to this would be needed?

I realize this might not be the right forum for this, but the people here are so helpful

Getting Remote Access To My Server
I would like to setup my server to allow remote access from home. It's on an office network which is separated from the WAN by a router. So long as I'm on this network, I can access the server from any computer connected to it. I enter the https URL of my server through IE and it brings me to the helm interface (the one that comes with Windows Server 2003). I can click on Maintenance and then on Remote Desktop, and it opens a new window with the server's desktop displayed.

If I'm somewhere other than the office network, I can't access it. IE gives me a "can't find webpage" message (or something along those lines). How do I setup my server to access it from outside the office network. I'd prefer to have a similar graphical interface as Remote Desktop.

You Don't Have Permission To Access /phpmyadmin/ On This Server
Recently, i upgraded my WAMP from WampServer2.0f to WampServer2.0g.

I uninstalled WampServer2.0f and then only installed WampServer2.0g.

I can access [url] and i can see under my tools section that there is a link to phpMyadmin which points to [url]

I get the error: Forbidden - You don't have permission to access /phpmyadmin/ on this server whenever i try to access phpMyadmin.

Additional Info:

My WAMP icon is white.

I tried Restarting all services but nothing helped.

I have a folder called phpmyadmin3.1.3 which is located inside C:wampapps.

The version of MySQL on my localhost is 5.1.32 (How do i know this? I clicked on my WAMP icon, pointed to MySQL --> Version and it displayed a checked mark on 5.1.32).

Did some homework, and people say that there may be a problem with the phpmyadmin.conf file. It's located in my C:wampalias

Can that file be edited phpmyadmin.conf?

I havent tried uninstalling and reinstalling WAMP. I'll do that as a last resort (and i don't know if that will fix things).

Secure Employees SSH Access To Server
I'm thinking about creating a limited platform for my employees to access my hosting servers

I wish they can create certain types of directories for users, set permissions on some directories, list users accounts, etc.

but although I don't think they would want to abuse this kind of access, I not only like the Trust-No-One premisse, but I also find it not very unlikely that the computer they're using get compromised or something like that

so I'd like to get technical ideas on how to develop this system and to know if anyone is interested and would like to contribute to the code

what I've considered so far is that I should either create a special user for that which would be on all users group, or should give it "root" access... the latter seems more reasonable for me considering the implementation and compatibility between systems and control panels

but with "root" access I mean "running MY INTERFACE to the employee as root"... this interface would have limited options like "create directory for user X", "list content of user X", etc. (taking a lot of care on input validation)... and would enforce some limits to prevent abuse (for example, can't list the content of more than 10 users per hour, or something like that... and alert me)

my main doubt is how you think that should be implemented? as a special server or as a webservice? with webservice I have the advantage of being capable of using SSL in a simple way and I don't need a special client (since any browser is a client)
then that could be PHP or Perl... but running as UID 0 (I don't even know if apache allows that, or if there's a workaround like SUID)

How Can I Http Access A Server Without A Domain
I've setup a dedicated server that is currently running with a domain bound to it. However this time I want to setup a centos 5.1 + latest apache 2 + bind 9 server that can only be connected to by IP address and doesn't have a domain name. So what do I need to modify in the below files to do so:

First of all will I even need bind at all? I already have it setup and (mis-)configured but I guess if I don't need it I can just take if off of autostart and stop the process "named".


options {
pid-file "/var/named/chroot/var/run/named/";
directory "/var/named/chroot/var/named";
query-source address * port 53;
allow-query { any; };
allow-transfer { };
recursion no;
notify no;
version "unknown";

logging {
category default { null; };

zone "" { type master; file ""; };
I don't even want the zone have in its name but that's just there so I could show you how I'd include

$TTL 14400
@ IN SOA (
86400 ) 14400 IN NS 14400 IN NS

localhost 14400 IN A
www 14400 IN A
I'm not sure what to do about those references to here, they shouldn't be needed but without them I don't know what to put here. ^^
Obviously I can't use those nameservers...


The only thing missing from this file is "search" at the top, is that needed even though I won't really have any domains used by this server?


# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail ....
