I don’t know this client so I can’t help there.

This means the client apparently works, it finds your modem’s external
Of course it can be someone else’s
Go to this page to see your external address:
Then command ‘host yourhomepage.com’ or whatever name your homepage has.
It should give you the same address as above if the client works ok.
If not there’s something wrong with the client and you must fix that as
a separate issue.
Point the browser to your real external IP.
To make sure, from another address, a smartphone for example or ask a
friend to do it. Sometimes you cannot access a service running in
192.168.x if you try it from the same address. This is something that
needs to be addressed separately.
But if this, attempted from another address gives the modem’s homepage
there’s something wrong with port forwarding/firewall…

If you have a web server running in 192.168.1.100 (this needs to be a
fixed address) you need to direct port 80 from “any” to 192.168.0.100.
You also need to open this port in the firewalls, both in your machine
and the router/modem…
Disable first the firewalls altogether, then find out how to properly
direct the port.
When this succeeds, configure the firewalls.
Oh, check also locally, ‘http://localhost’ to make sure you have the
service running properly
