When you are entering your WAN ip address http://24.132.xx.xx is the machine / device you are using also on the same network as the machine you are connecting to ?
The reason I ask is that some routers dont support this.
I think its called something like NAT Loopback, but dont quote me on that
If your router is anything like mine, the only way to test with the WAN IP address is to test via a different internet connection on a different network. For this I use my iPhone or iPad on 3G, once I know it works ok, I go back to using the local IP.
OK, have not tried that. Cant do that until the morning, but thanks for the info. I will update this post with any progress. Thanks again..
