Access from outside LAN

I installed Browseamp on my computer and I can access the web interface using my local (internal to router) IP address (typically 192.168.x.x). I know my public IP address but http://ipaddress:portnum/ does not bring up the right page (while http:///internalip:portnum/ does in fact bring it up).

How can I fix this?

You have to configure your router to forward the incoming packets at port xx to the computer with browseamp running. See router manual for port forwarding.

Thanks for your reply. I did fwd the ports on my router. Still no go.

Now i'm on a school LAN with my own IP (it's not internal), but i still can't access the page from another computer outside the network (even though the IP is public). I can however, access the page from my own browser and from other computers on my LAN as well.

I don't know why there's no access from outside. :(  Does anyone have any ideas?

you may have to punch holes in the software firewalls, such as the windows one...
to allow external networks to connect
