Cant access server from mobile device

Hi -

I am running an Apache server (WAMP installation 3.22). Windows 10. Apache icon is green and seems to be running fine.


I am running a HTTP server for some development I am doing. This project involves comunicating with a HTTP server and a Firebird Database.

Now, all is well until I try use my external IP address from a mobile device to access the server. Then it just times out.

I have correctly setup port-forwarding on the router and everything is accessible from ANY other computer. So the url goes something like this..

[70.12.123]

To test this, I have connected from another computer on the LAN (using the external IP) and it connects fine. I have used Teamviewer and connected from a computer NOT on the LAN (again using my public ip) . That also connects fine.

However, whenever I try to use the same url from a mobile device (phone) it just times out.

Any help would be much appreciated..
Thanks.

Hi

Is the phone connected via wifi or via your data plan?

Hi -

I have tried both. Tried turning WiFi off and use only the mobile network - did not connect. Tried with WiFi connection and did not connect either sad smiley

I also turned off firewall (just to rule that out..)
