New to using linux at home i'm struggling to get files served over the web.
I've got a domain name registered and updated the zone file to point to my router IP. My ISP doesn't allow a web server to run off port 80 so i've set up port forwarding from my router to the linux box using another port. I've disabled SELinux and allowed my custom port (4643) to be opened on the firewall.
I can log in via ssh.
I've put a simple test page called index.htm in the document root (/var/www/html). I've also tried changing the listing port in the httpd.conf file to 4643. I simply cannot make a connection to the server via a browser. Just get an error in firefox saying that a connection cannot be established. I can browse to the index file locally and its served.
httpd is running from startup.
Anyone got any ideas? Am I overlooking something? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers
