Hi there,

Having a big issue with accessing my localhost:8080/share/page outside my own network.

My application is using Tomcat and on port 8080

 

Things i have done:-

1. opened all port 8080

2. Did port forwarding with my ISP provider on my router IPv4 and IPv6

3. Have a fixed IP now (was DNCP)

4. Adding for LAN host ip to the DMZ on the router

 

https://www.yougetsi...ols/open-ports/

my external port is open

but not my LAN on 8080

 

Any information would help greatly. thanks in advanced

:confused: localhost means the computer you are using. So when you type in "localhost:8080/share/page" it will look on that "local host" computer through port "8080" for "/share/page".

 

If you were to then go to another computer and type in the same thing "localhost:8080/share/page" it means look on that computer, not over on the other computer. If you want it to look through "port 8080" for "/share/page" back on the other computer, you need to replace that "localhost" with the IPaddress of the other computer.

but it still doesn't work with the proper IP, so i am at a lost.  Could be that it is a SBS2011 server using .local domain, not sure.

To reach it while you're on the same local network would require a local IP address, or internal name if so assigned.

 

To reach it from outside the local network, (across the internet), will require its public IP address (or Domain name).
