    Ugh.. All those IPs from the same range.. How about a pretty diagram of your network setup showing exactly what is connected where, including all addresses?

    For systems you have on your side of the modem/router, you need access to port 80. Public access to your server is usually inhibited by the ISP by design.
    They want you to PAY for a server class bandwidth connection.

    As a temporary work around, have the Webserver use a port link 60080
    and then use your browser to access it eg

    The ISP can't block everything :) but may charge you an arm+leg for extra bandwidth:(

    if router has a DMZ port put server on that
    if not you must do port forward I used to use 192-168-1-200 lan open both tcp and udp pick a port # like 6345 or 8080 is common I think you can go to 5 digits up to about 40000??
    now config your server app like , if you own your on doman
    here's my old url if you don't have a doman name
    you use your WAN ip from your provider 00-000-00-0:8080/
    dots instead of dashs of course
    most ISP's wil not even bother you about your bandwidth
    just remember this is uploading and your uploads are limited under 700kb/s

    the highest port number allowed is 2**16 or 65535 and port 8080 is
    another http service for JSP technology(ie: java on the server side).
    I'm sure that will get blocked also, but hey -- give it a try -- it might just work :)

    typical acceptable use policy

    sometimes we forget to read all the fine print. here's an excerpt from
    my ISP's Acceptable Use Policy:
    (e) Traffic Consumption Allowances. xxxxx has the right to
    monitor, measure and report bandwidth consumption by You. xxxxx
    reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to establish, modify and/or
    enforce consumption allowances at any time now or in the future, with or
    without notice to You, and to apply a surcharge for excess usage

    (g) to run a server of any type in connection with the xxxxx
    Broadband Service, or to provide network or host services to others via
    the xxxxx Network. Prohibited uses include, without limitation,
    running servers for PPP, FTP, HTTP, DNS, POP, SMTP, NNTP, Proxy
    (any variety), DHCP, IRC, TELNET, TFTP, SNMP and multi-user
    interactive forums, and remapping of ports for the purpose of operating a
    server on the xxxxx Network;

    (j) to operate a WI-FI or other form of wireless network that allows others
    who are not in your household to use your xxxxx Broadband Service.​
