    I installed Wampserver on my laptop and although it works locally by typing 127.0.0.1 or localhost, I cannot access anything from outside the network. I have changed my Belkin router settings to open ports 80 and 8080 and I have also made ports 80 and 8080 open in Windows firewall. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Which WAMP server did you install? Before you can get your Belkin router working you'll need to have the WAMP's Apache web server listening on your workstation's network interface.

    Localhost can't be reached by anyone else including your Belkin router.

    Sorry, Jan. I guess I didn't explain my problem very well. I know I cannot access the server from outside of the network by typing localhost or 127.0.0.1. I should, however, be able to type my ip address (199.255.184.69)(Dynamic) and see my index directory. Is that correct? Anyway, I cannot access anything from outside of the network. I installed Wampserver 2.2e. BTW, I am not real savvy with web server lingo.

  4. Moved to localhost.

    If that's your LAN IP, and you have WAMP running, then yes. Keep in mind WP doesn't like multiple locations.

    Anyway, I cannot access anything from outside of the network.

    You mean your WAMP site can't see anything on the WAN, but the LAN is okay?

    I cannot access my computer at all from outside of the network even though it looks as if Wamp is running fine. And yes, that is my lan ip. It most likely is something I have done (or not done) when configuring Wamp. I just don't know what it is. I am not web server savvy. I simply want to make some of my own music available for friends to download as an album. I use fileden, but they only allow 100mb uploads... too small. I don't want to pay for professional web storage. I am testing Wamp on my laptop, but if I can get it working, I have an unused desktop I will use just as a server.
