Sorry if this misses the point of your post but it may provide at least a
starting point.

Which IP address are you trying? If you are behind the router on a private
network you may need to access the server like this http://ServerPrivateIP
Address. If you are accessing from the public side of the router you will
need to access the server like this http://RouterPublicIPAddress and
forward port 80 in the router to the server's private IP Address.
