    look mate, yo arent really giving us alot of of info here.
    for example,
    what are you using?
    what networking gear do you have?
    what system are you running?

    for all i know u are using a bowl of cereal, connected using a coffee mug and a small bottle of cough syrup.

    you get the idea?

    Depending on what ISP you have, they could be blocking port 80 traffic from ever reaching your server.

    If you're able to open a different port, 81 or 56789 for example, but still have no luck with 80, it's probably the case that your ISP is blocking traffic.

    If you answer some of my questions i can help you.

    FYI - port 80 will not be blocked by any isp as far as im aware, other wise i doubt you would be able to view this webpage cos http uses port 80.

    thanks for the info.

    u need to forward the port to your local ip addresss (192.168.1.xxx) then u need to allow port 80 to allow incoming requests through the winxp firewall and/or webroot.
    i would suggest that u assign a static ip address to your computer 1st as it the port will always be forwarded to the correct ip address. If u have a dhcp address then that can change.

    but my windows firewall is always off and webroot doesnt let me choose which ports to go through....i dont think it blocks ports....so really all i have to do is forward the port to my local ip addresss right?

    From the Webroot site-
    "Webroot Software is a leader in antivirus and antispyware security solutions for home, small business, and enterprise customers."

    It is NOT a firewall.

    To answer your question, Yes
