I am blocked ( more than want to be for protection).
I was thinking a kind of server accessible from
outside. Living temporarily in an odd country
I am not thinking to get official domain name.

I have the same IP whole time, satellite fast connection.

I know my IP as seen outside. I logged in to a western world
server and look at the IP the connection was coming
(different I see here, NAT).

Ping and traceroute work from outside to this IP.

I tried ssh (my own firewall port open) from outside.
No connection.

Then I tought that firewalls block upper addresess and
wrote few line php script as server on the port 54321.
Works internally in my network, blocked from outside.

I can't negotiate with local people.
Can I do anything to get connection to my computer?

Hi big_pig,

Have you tried temporarily disabling your Firewall, so that you can see if this is the cause of the problem?

Thanks Dan,
but I have tried. In fact not only opening ports but testing that my computer is
really accessible. It is accessible from internal network, so my own firewall is
open. :tazz:
