I just got a new ISP. They are blocking port 80. This means I cannot access my websites being hosting on my server running out of my home network.
So if I go to www.mm-theory.com, which I used to be able to do with my previous provider, it tells me: the site cannot be reached. I'm trying to open port 5000 so that I can get to my site by typing www.mm-theory.com:5000, but that doesn't seem to be working either.
I'm wondering if anyone can help me troubleshoot the issue.
I have the domain mm-theory.com registered with register.com. When I log into my account with them, this is what I have set for the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses:
The IPv6 address is left blank because Telus (my current ISP) changes it on a daily basis. Technical support at register.com told me I could leave it blank and only have the IPv4 address, so I did that.
When I go to whatismyip.com, this is what I see:
When I go onto my Windows Server 2003, this is what I get when I type ipconfig /all:
...and I see this when I open the properties for mm-theory.com in IIS on my my server:
This is what I have set for port forwarding on my router:
Does anyone know what might be going wrong? Thanks.
EDIT: I am not able to get the screen captures to show up. I am able to get them to show up here:
