I'm writing an http proxy server (homework assignment). I got it working on my home network but i can't connect to it from the outside.
I've configured the router to forward communication on the port i use to the machine running the server, turned off windows firewall and entered my outside real-world ip in the brwoser's proxy settings. Is there anything else i should do ?
turns out the problem was with the address to which i was binding the server. When I used "localhost" it didn't work, once i removed it and only supplied the port, the server was bound to some default address and everything started working. What address should have i used ?
