hello,

I setted up a LAMP server here at the office. and forwarded the port 80 to the ip address of my server but still i cant quite access the content of the website that i hosted. I am running out of options. I have a static IP from my ISP. and over at the dot.tk domain i forwarded the address to my public Static Ip but still i cant access the website.

Please help me. i want to host our company's website here at the office to lessen the cost of Webhosting

Thank you

Check the output of `iptables-save` to see if port 80 is allowed through.

its allowed if i Telnet it Via port 80 i can connect. it only says waiting for example.com on the bottom left of the webpage. what seems to be the problem?

Where did you telnet from? If from the same machine then it's not a valid test, you'd need to do it from outside too.
