Okay, a couple days ago I built a bare bones kit into a machine. I've been running through tutorials to get it to work and right now I've gotten as far as making it available in my lan, hooray!
However, I cannot access the repositories remotely. Any machine on the lan can easily access it through the hostname or, using 'outbound ip/hostname' or 'outbound ip/machine ip'. The machine can be pinged from a remote, non-lan machine and responds. I just can't get anyone into it outside of my lan.
I've been trying to figure it out but I'm lost. I'm breaking a few rules and if any of these would be my problem, please indicate.
- I don't think I have a static IP (However I check my outbound IP whenever I do testing, is that not enough? It has stayed the same for 5+ days)
- I have not discussed this set-up with my service provider (Does Optimum Online block port 80? If so, can I just switch apache to listen on a different port?)
- I am in the DMZ of my router. This is what allowed it to be pinged remotely. For security reasons the machine that is in that zone is turned off most of the time until I can get it locked down.
- HTTP protocol (I was planning on changing once I had figured out this issue)
Any help would be appreciated, even if it's just a couple of words I could google to understand what I'm doing wrong.
Tortoise SVN does not allow access remotely, but it does within the LAN as well.
