To use the web server, you must disable the private network and public network services on the Windows Firewall. The first step, of course, is to search for firewall settings in the Windows search bar.
Then disable the public network service and the static network as follows.To make sure that the ip address is publicly available, please enter "whats my ip" in the browser, then the displayed ip address is a public ip address that corresponds to the details of the received account information of the public ip address.
Congratulations, setting up a public IP address from Perwiramedia was successful.
The default gateway settings should be left unchanged if you have problems connecting to the Internet with VPN enabled. This is due to the fact that if you have configured your VPN connection to use the default gateway on the remote network, then this parameter overrides the default gateway settings that you specify in the TCP/IP settings.
To uncheck the default gateway option, follow these steps if you are a Windows user:
Go to the Start menu > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change the adapter settings.
- Right-click the VPN connection adapter and select Properties.
- Go to the "Network" tab.
- Double-click the Internet Protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) option.
- Click the Advanced button and go to the IP Settings tab.
- Uncheck Use the default gateway on the remote network.
- Click OK.
