It sounds likely that your external IP address has changed. As most ISP's provide their customers with a static IP address.

You can use a service such as dyndns.org to insure that your site is accessible externally if your IP should change.

A 404 message is generated by a web server. So either there is one running on your provider with your IP address, or it is your own machine that generates that error. It could even be that your router forwards the HTTP port to the wrong machine. If you have Firefox and the Live HTTP headers plug-in, you can see what headers are sent by the web server. Most servers identify themselves. So if you see the Abyss mentioned somewhere, it is probably your own server. If it is an other brand, it definitely isn't. But the 404 page itself could also contain that info.

If your own server generates the messages, they should be visible in the log (if you enabled logs). This is another point of inverstigation.

A typical not-found message in Live HTTP Headers looks like:

(request from the browser)
Code:
GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.0.5) Gecko/2008121622 Ubuntu/8.10 (intrepid) Firefox/3.0.5
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en,en-us;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: keep-alive


(answer from the web server)
Code:
HTTP/1.x 404 Not Found
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 403
Connection: Close
Date: Sun, 11 Jan 2009 12:31:54 GMT
Server: Abyss/2.4.0.3-X1-Linux AbyssLib/2.4.0.3

As you see on the last line, this is the Abyss web server running on Linux.

Did you manage to solve it?

if so, How? I am going through the same problem, my IP hasn't changed, I have worked with the port forwarding a bunch and I know it is right because my port is open but I cannot pull up the site from an external IP.

I installed the server software. Couldnt see my page on regular localhost. Changed the port to 8000 and it shows. Now how do I get the outside world to see my page? I also signed up with DynDNS. Have the name: themckeefamily.webhop.org

Verizon doesnt support port 80 port forwarding. So what do I do? I can email anyone screen shots if they can help me. dmckee01@verizon.net

Thanks much.

You need to append port 8000 at the end of the URL for the DynDNS address. You can also create a redirect that points to the IP Address of your server with the port suffixed at the end.

Example: http://themckeefamily.webhop.org:8000/
