Now the problem is that I can access the website with port number 80 from outside my network but I am not able to access the website with port 81.Please guide me what are the steps I need to perform to access the website from outside my network.Please share some links.

    Thanks

    Something will be blocking that port, no doubt a firewall or similar on your network.  You'll have to contact your network admin to ask how to open that port up to the outside.  Using 81 is a bad idea though, you should use ports that are outside of the known port range of 1000 or so.  You should especially try and ovoid ports used by people pirating copyrighted material :)

    Edit: you *are* adding the 81 to the uri, aren't you?

    Yes I am adding 81 in my uri and if I want to do it of my own can you give some resources on that.

    You can't do it on your own I'm afraid, if you could simply disable parts of the firewall because you wanted to then the network security wouldn't be very effective.  If the port is blocked it has been for a reason, so you'll need to find out who is responsible for unblocking it.
