Subject Re: [users@httpd] Expose my server to internet

Could it be that you have a Provider Grade NAT?

This means that your host is within your home LAN, and this home LAN is
within a LAN of the Internet provider. If you ask for your IP address on
sites like, you see the IP address that your
provider's gateway has in the Internet. Thousands of other hosts which
are also customers of your provider could have the same IP address then.

If so, there is no way to access your host from outside (from the
Internet zone). There is also no way to access your host from within
another host of your ISP's network, because the intrazone traffic is
usally blocked.
