Greetings.. hope you would be fine doing well..
For your problem I would like to suggest:
1 - Try Reinstalling Skype by first removing it from Add Remove Programs (Win-XP) and Program & Features (Win7-8) in Control panel and then installing it.
2 - If you have any webserver technology installed like xampp and wampp may be they are counterfeiting. Solution is you need to change skype connecting ports from options, but first stop apache services then do this.
Highly unlikely. That would block all HTTP sites that use Apache. Even then, how would they distinguish one web server from another type. Your error is based on a specific site, or all internet if Comcast does not show their splash page saying it can't reach a specific site.
To access "localhost" you must have a web server ( IIS or Apache - IIS is the simplest and is found in add/remove programs, Windows components usually) running on the PC that Joomla is installed on. You must also use http://localhost for it to work. Localhost means you are only doing a loopback to your own pc for testing purposes. By default most web servers run on port 80 if the port is changed then you must use "http://localhost:port". Depending on how your network is set up - If you have a router or firewall you may also have to "open" or do a port forward to port 80 for the software to see the server holding the Joomla pages and also allow internet access as a server. First try the default web page the server has usually default.htm or index.htm as http://localhost/default.htm etc, if it loads then you know localhost is functioning, then try the Joomla page you want to see using it in place of default.htm. If no page loads at the start - then check your Apache(Xampp) configuration file to be sure it is set up and working properly - if I recall it is hhtp.conf open it with notepad to configure and save as "all files" not text. You might also check your Joomla configuration options as well to be sure the correct port and location are used for serving pages.
htaccess is a simple text file that resides on a web server. It's called htaccess because the file is named ".htaccess" (with the period in front).
The purpose of the file is to allow the manager of the website to change the way a website functions by changing various configuration options for the software that runs the website (AKA, the webserver software. This software is called "Apache").
The file contains commands for the webserver software. These commands specify the new values for the configuration options.
There is too much detail about htaccess to go into here. The best way to learn about it is to read a tutorial like this one: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/howto/htaccess.html or to start by knowing what configuration change you want to make to the webserver software and then consulting the documentation in order to learn whether you can change that via htaccess and then how to do it.
Go to Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall> Exceptions> Click on add port. Call it port 80. In port number type in 80. Then click on OK. Then close all the windows.
Basically on the computer that is running apache (Server), YouTube is unblocking the port called 80. On some systems mainly XP home we found that port 80 was always blocked. Even though localhost worked, computers connecting to it would get an connection error. Also, if you have a 3rd party firewall, you have to unblock YouTube. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

Hi Robmoll, Let's get a little bit more in detail. I'm doing the same exact thing you are trying to do with a D-Link DI-624 and I'm using NO-IP instead of DynDNS. I'd like to ask you a question, if I may, what are you actually seeing now using port 80 and how did you disable it? Can you connect another PC to the same router (making a small Home Network) and test locally your Apache and eventually your web-page by typing something like this "http://192.168.0.101/"? Are you already able to see your router from the "outside" trough port 8080? Are you specifying your "private" IP in the port forwarding setting of your router? Do you mind showing a snapshot of your port forwarding settings? Here is mine; you see two different IP's because there are two PC connected.
As I had mentioned earlier to another gentleman, who had a similar issue; those SOHO routers and modem/routers have issues with their advanced functionalities which includes port forwarding. The first thing you must do is
- Make sure 'block anonymous internet requests', is disabled in the router's settings
- Go to the following website http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scanner/
- Try to see if there is a service running on port 80
If the port is open (which I believe would be a least possibility), there is something else we are missing here.
Get back to me with further observations
