I'm setting up a WAMP server with SSL on XP SP2.

-Default port 80 && 443 are NOT forwarded.

The server's admin forwarded ports 1000-1010 && 8080.

When I change httpd config file to listen to port 8080 for regular HTTP && SSL on 1001

8080 - Brings me to a routers/gateway login screen. 1001 - "SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length"

This is my first time setting up a HTTP/S server.

Localhost works perfectly. I'm not setting up Virtualhosts because I'm NOT wanting to connect to this via DNS.

WAMP should be used for development only. You're asking to get hacked if you expose it to the internet (which is what you're trying to do). – EEAA May 9 '11 at 2:07

I agree with ErikA. You should never put a WAMP server in the wild. Its fine to run on the Intra-net. Fine for business applications. Fine for development work. But we live in a world where this is a small challenge to crackers.
