browser timing out - can't connect

Post by sweddjen » Mon Jul 06, 2009 7:48 pm

When I'm at work, I can't seem to connect to netjukebox on my home computer.

When I go to my IP http://##.###.##.222/netjukebox/, I receive the following error in my browser:
Connection Interrupted
The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again.
So it appears to be timing out...

At work I'm on a mac with Firefox 3.0.

Any idea why it times out?

Thanks!

How long does it take before you get this message?

I don't mean to state the obvious, but is your computer behind a router, and if so have you forwarded port 80 to your computer's local IP address?

It takes about 60-90 seconds to timeout. I'm not sure exactly because I keep alt-tabbing to do something else, and by the time I come back it has timed out.

Yes my computer is behind a router at home. I'm a total noob at networking stuff, so I haven't forwarded anything.....

How do I go about forwarding it? I have a linksys router, and am using xampp. Do I forward it from within my router setup page?

Thanks.

Maybe this "How to" can help:

Thanks... got the port forwarded last night. The print issue of Maximum PC didn't include the last step in the process that the online article did.
