I can successfully navigate to : http://localhost/postinfo.html
Note the html file extension above.
but when I navigate to this existing page:
http://localhost/localstart.asp I am promopt to enter my username/password, which I do but the dialog keeps reappearingeach time I correctly enter it.
When I try to use my external IP address
http://188.8.131.52/postinfo.html with my router set to port forward traffic on port 80 to the IP address of the same machine, I get the followinge error:
The server 184.108.40.206 at UTA200-TM requires a username and password. Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection).
I have no anti virus app on this machine and I tried to turn off Windows Firewall.
All of this worked at one time, I am not sure what changed. I am not inclined to think that my ISP is blocking incoming traffic on port 80 as this once worked-of course, it could have changed but I am thinking hopefully...
Can someone help so people outside of my home intranet access my web site?
