Installed LAMP via tasksel everything is default

Ok so i have port forwarded external port 65000 to internal port 80 pointing to my VM 192.168.xx.xx

so dynamicip:65000 --> 192.168.xx.xx:80

internally apache works by 192.168.xx . This shows the IT works page. I can access it from other machines on the LAN too. However externally i get nothing. I confirm the dynamic dns is pointing to the correct place.

There is no firewall, ufw is off, there are no iptable rules. i have Listen set to port 80 i have

NameVirtualHost *:80 Listen 80 I've googled for anything i can try and no luck.

Even took the setup home and cloned the VM and setup my own port forward and still no luck

ive been trying to figure this out for hours with no luck, please what am i missing?

Thanks in advance
