Cannot get my website out to the internet on my Uverse connection
I have a small computer on my home LAN that I use to host pages to the internet. I recently switched to Uverse and set up my Uverse supplied modem/router to host this computer to the internet. I went into the firewall settings at the Uverse modem/router web page, 192.168.1.254, to pass HTTP requests to the static address of my website computer. I tried accessing the website from my IP address, xxxxxxxxxx and I can't get the website. I can get the website using the local static IP address, xxxxxxxxxx [edited for privacy – please do not post personal information].
What is going on? I believe I have a residential service, I have discounted service by way of being a SNAP recipient. Could it be that I am restricted from hosting a website?
