I'm trying to setup a web server behind a DI-524 router, but I'm not being able to make connection from the external network.

I do have a private VPN configured on the same server and it works correctly.

Does anyone has a tip on how to do it?

This is driving me crazy... If I connect my computer straight to the ISP everything works... When connecting through the router... nada, niente, nothing. – Paulo Santos Mar 10 '10 at 3:03

Don't you have to open the incoming ports on 80?

Setup port forwarding to your web server. This is assuming your ISP will allow incoming port 80 traffic.
