dear all,

first of all, I apologyze if there is already a solved post like this: I've tried to search before writing a post, but found nothing...
I'm trying to set up a webserver form my pc, which I need to connect from outside through my public ip. After configuring apache and php, I configured my router in order to forward every external request on port 80, to the port 80 of the local ip of the machine where the webserver is running. (portfowarded port 80 to My model/router is a Dlink dsl-2640b. I'm using ubuntu 10.10 server.
My problem is that even if I told the router to use the, it forward the request to my public ip to the admin page of the router itself (
Does anyone have an idea on what's is going on?
Thanks a lot.

I have the same problem, and Im waiting d-link give us a answer. But I have windows and disabled firewall. I did everything that is possible. The 2640b do not forward any request to the socket we want. We need this solution to still using d-link products.
