I know this will be basic concept, but as I’m new to the network, I write this question.

[Situation] (OS: Ubuntu)

I need to set an apache2 server at a computer. I made php, mysql, and set apache2. I checked it works well at localhost. After that I got Ip address, subnet mask, gateway, dns server from professor.I set it with network manager (GUI). I checked it also works well.


But this doesn’t allow connection from external. If I type ip address from other device, it show nothing. The professor said that I need to use a router, but there’s already Gateway for the Ip. (But the gateway refuse connection)

Is it right that I need to connect the pc and router, and use the router’s gateway for port-forward?
