I tried everything to get my local testing server to work. I've used No-IP, Simple Port Forwarding, and Port Forward. I changed the host file, I changed the config file, I used Xampp, Wampserver, Ampps, Vertrigo AND Server2Go. Nothing works! I have spent a whole week on this and in the meantime my work goes unfinished.
This has been a real headache for me and I give up. It's obvious to me that Verizon has blocked several ports. I don't like the idea of having to pay extra just to test some templates and when I do get a business account I'm going to use a different service provider.
I'd rather not test remotely but right now I have no choice. Have you or anyone else had this experience? If so, do you know what they did to correct it? Maybe I'll try one more time but for now I have to finish my work and I don't want to waste anymore time on this.
