i need internet users to be able to access my computer's webserver (this computer is on a home network)...i can edit 3 things...the IP in the apache config file, the HTTP ip setting on my internet connection (lil computer on the system tray)...and my router settings which has a whole bunch of shit that i dont feel comfortable messing around with unless a skilled person directs me.
Use the router... Either put the webserver in an internet facing DMZ (not recommended unless you know how to nail down an OS) or forward port tcp80 to the internal address of your webserver. Your ISP will need to setup your DNS and you may need to rent a static routable IP address.
1) You need a static IP from your ISP 2) Disable DHCP and run NAT 3) Open the correct ports which apache uses.
Dont know apache so I dont know the settings, dont know your router so I dont know the settings, dont know your ISP so I cant tell you how to get a astatic IP.. :p
nvm...i got it.
