      Router config to enable web site hosting via apache

      I've moved from BT broadband to Sky. I have my own web-site that I host on my pc running Apache server. However I've not been able to access my website remotely since changing ISP.
      I have the SAGEM Fast 2504 router and have defined a firewall rule to allow inbound service HTTP setting the LAN server ip address to the ip address of my ADSL port.
      I have edited my apache config file to listen on my pc's ip address i.e. 192.168.0.2:80 and I've tried setting the ServerName to my website domain name and the ADSL port, neither works.

      I can access the website locally by entering 192.168.0.2, but not remotely via the internet.
      I think this is a router issue. Can anyone please advise on any other settings are required, or whether I've made a mistake in my definitions?
      Thanks.

      when you say remotley do you mean on another internet conection? as you cant visit the site from your own internet connection

      also you are not allowed to host websites on a sky bb connection, they dont allow it.

      Yes, I mean I can't access the website from another internet connection.
      I didn't know it wasn't allowed to host a website on sky. Do they physically prevent this and how come there are other people on this forum who host their own websites?

      Extract from T & Cs.
      (h) To protect our network and maintain quality of service for all our users we can temporarily or permanently control or restrict your online activities via Sky Broadband where such activities may have a detrimental effect on other customers' quality of service and it is reasonable for us to do so (e.g. sending "spam" Messages or hosting a website).
      Although this is mentioned in the T & Cs, there have been no reports of anyone being restricted. I think it would depend on the type of site you were hosting. A few pages would probably not attract any attention but one which had thousands of visitors a day would probably be stepped on.
