I have a wireless internet connection setup on my Mac. (v10.5.6) Am connected to the internet and everything is running smoothly. I recently discovered a quirky behaviour while setting up apache web server. When i typed in my dynamic ip (http://126.96.36.199/) in the webbrowser to visit my site pages it just timed out. In terminal i tried pinging localhost and it worked.
$ ping localhost
PING localhost (127.0.0.1): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.063 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.056 ms
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.044 ms
But if i pinged my ip it would just time out.
$ ping 188.8.131.52
PING 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11): 56 data bytes
--- 18.104.22.168 ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss
Pinging any other site works though.
I am completely stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
