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?

I have contacted customer support and they say, no  AT&T does not block access to my website on my U-verse internet connection.

 

Is anybody else able to host websites on their U-verse internet connection?  What am I missing?

Does it matter what kind of website it is?  I post transcripts from the International Court Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia that I have processed for legibility.  I am not violating any laws, as far as I know.  The link when it worked was www.ictytranscripts.org.

go to http://www.canyouseeme.org/ on your PC that hosts your website, does it see you on port 80?

 

If not then you need to configure the firewall to allow port 80 to be forwarded, or you can put your static ip you have on the PC in DMZ mode which will open the PC up to the WWW on all ports.

 

If it does see you on port 80 then the problem is with you configuration on the PC that is preventing the broadcast of your documents.
