I have Ubuntu 8.10 server set up on my network which is connect to the
internet through a linksys router. I wanted to be able to access
websites on my server but need to go through a port besides 80 because
the router blocks this port. I've enabled port forewarding on port 8080
on my router and have set up a static IP for my linux machine. When I
try and connect to my server with myserver.net:8080 it still times out.
I'm pretty sure I set up everything correctly though. Here's my
ports.conf file in the apache2 folder:
I tried switching to VirtualHost *:8080 as well as changing it in the
default file in the sites-available folder but it didn't work either.
I've done this before on my Hardy system and I had no NameVirtualHost
option so I'm not really sure why it's there now.
