I can not see the apache web server on my laptop from the Internet


Initially, I could access my Apache web server from the Internet via IP, but for several days I have not been able to access my Apache web server from the Internet.

The web server is fine, I access from my own machine with localhost or the IP that I have assigned and it gives me the welcome message of Default Page of apache.

I can ping both ways between my laptop and any other PC connected to the Internet.

I put any port other than 80 in apache, even the 8080 and if I can see the web server from the Internet, but it is not the idea that I have to put the IP plus the port, in this case the port 8080 or the port that be. link

I tried connecting my laptop to another Internet service that obviously has another IP and if I can see my Apache web server normally by IP and any server connected to the Internet can see it anyway.

The detail is that I have a fixed IP on my Internet service.

I have a Lubuntu 18.04 server and a apache2 2.4.29 (Ubuntu)

What could be happening?

Any ideas to help me get out of this quagmire?

From what you say, probably your router or the firewall of the company that provides you with internet service is blocking port 80.
