I just want to know how a web server works by creating one in my own computer.
I have installed XAMPP and the apache server is running fine. I can access web pages hosted on my computer from local network.
But how can I make it accessible from the Internet? I use USB tethered internet connection on my system (my android device is connected to internet through LTE and I share this internet connection to my system using USB).
I tried to connect to my computer using a browser (http://[my_public_ipv6]) but it can't connect.
- Am I missing something related to port forwarding?
- How can i check whether my ISP allows incoming connection or not, if that matters at all?
And i would be grateful, if anyone can provide some tips regarding security issues too.
