Router: IP: 192.168.1.1
Host OS: Windows 7(64 bit) - IP: 192.168.1.2
Guest OS(VMware): Ubuntu 12.04 LTS(64 bit) - IP: 192.168.1.10
Guest OS has a NAT and a bridged connection via VMWare.
I'm running a basic Node.js server/website listening on port 8000. Port forwarded Router with internal/external port: 8000
I can access my website on LAN(via Windows OS) but not from the any computer outside it or via the internet.
(1) Disabling Ubuntu firewall "ufw".
(2) Windows 7 firewall disabled.
(3) Problem persists even for apache2 or any other server.
Result: No change
Also external port scans(nmap on external IP) show my port 8000 to be "filtered" rather than open.
Also running the same Node.js server on port 8000 in Win 7 works fine. Port 8000 is "open".
I have tried a "lot" of online solutions for several days but no progress. Any solutions/ideas please?
