Here is a link to your router configuration with all the details of how to do the port forwarding:

You need to do port forwarding on your router from the public ip port 80 to the internal (server)
ip port 80. Also, configure your router to always give the same ip (static ip) to your server.

This way all the requests coming from outside on port 80 are forwarded to internal server
ip on port 80, the server response are going to normally be routed to the source request,
but you just need the outside traffic to be routed the the server ip. So, search on your router
configuration  for port forwarding. That’s all you need to do, nothing on the apache, just
standard configuration.

Yes , has to be set to static  make sure your IP is out side the DCHP pool , that way it won’t
be given to any one else by mistake .

That’s why I start my DHCP pool at .100

Hello VA3RZS,

Yes, my internal IP address is static. It's But DHCP is set to "Automatic".
Does that affect?

Thank you.

It’s your inside address that needs to be static , yes the router will just be fine

Your box will need to be on something like 192.168.1( or 0) .50 let’s say and in the router
that ip and port should point to that ip and port

I have all my static ip’s under 100 and dhcp is above 100

Hope this helps

Hello Bob, Richar and Mark,
Thank you for your response.

@Bob Cochran,
Yeah, I can access port 80 form my local but not from internet. I'm trying to access my IP
from mobile network (Not wifi, from data pack) Please find my comments below.
I'm not sure what you mean by "successfully logged in" into your router.
As I said, I've registered a free domain name on<>, I had to
configure dynamic DNS in my router to synchronize my external/public IP (since it is dynamic
in nature) with my registered domain name automatically. So i meant that configuration was

Your router will need to support NAT to translate your local IP address
to the one on the Internet.
I'm using TP-Link 300M Wireless N Router, Model No. TL-WR841N / TL-WR841ND.
I hope this supports NAT.

sudo tcpdump -i enp2s0 -vvvSXn port 80
I'm not sure which parameters I need to change here according to my system. I just ran the
same command and got output as
tcpdump: enp2s0: No such device exists
(SIOCGIFHWADDR: No such device)

@Richard szajkowski,
It's my home network, and have dynamic IP address. But I've updated the IP address which I
got from google search "what is my ip",  while forwarding the port.

@Mark J Bradakis,
Thank you for the reference. I'll take a look.

Thank you.
