Subject Re: [users@httpd] port forwarding and other options for having access to my apache server through the ip address
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2019 20:36:49 GMT
You may also need to look into whether you have a static or dynamic IP
address.  Many Consumer ISP packages provide dynamic, so the public IP
address changes periodically, often a day or two in my experience.  Also
note this won't be the IP address of your host machine, but the IP assigned
to the router.
