    Well.....you must be doing it wrong then :p

    Assuming you want to run a web server from within your home LAN.....

    Router has IP
    Set web server to have a fixed IP (say

    In port forwarding on router

    Set source and destination port to be 80
    Set destination IP to be

    Job done.....from the outside world try to web browse to your home public IP address. To test it from home go to
    and it will show you what can be seen from the outside world.

    make sure your ISP isn't blocking the ports... mine does. if so, try another set of ports that isn't used by something your ISP may block
