I currently setup a port in my router. Port Number is 2300 and I wanted to share a site on my WAMP server. I know how to setup port forwarding so that can't be the issue. But when I go to {My-IP}:2300 I just get "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to {MY-IP}:2300". I changed Listen 80 to Listen 2300 in the Apache httpd.conf file. I used a port checker to see if my port goes through and it did, so the port seems to be working for the port checker, but not for me.

Are you testing this from inside your own network? If so, then you'd need a router that supports hairpin routing (which most consumer-grade "routers" don't support).
