What Operating System is running on your RPi?


What Service, Daemon or other listening process is currently responding to connections to Port 80? Because it is almost certainly the configuration for that application that you need to modify.

Normally it is easier to configure the router something like: local port = 80 -> external port = 83.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated RPiOS Buster w/ Desktop OS.

That should probably read: external port 83 -> local port 80.

If the OP is trying to more or less hide port 80 (HTTP) by using 83 instead, he should be aware that port 83 has an official IANA usage assigned. In general, on such reassignments, all ports below 1024 should be avoided.
