How to specify a dynamic ip address in place of localhost:8080 when accessing a webpage
Posted on 2003-02-27
I am newbie to the web development thing and I am anxious to explore this world. So I was happy to resolve many issues with loading servlets and jsps and get them up and running no problems at all. However, now what I was trying to do in the past days is to be able to access the jsp without the need to say localhost:8080 as part of the URL. I would like also to access the jsp from outside. My host is behind a linksys router and I have got a DHCP meaning that the IP address I get is dynamic so I dont have a local ip address. So I dont know what is the current ip address to use it in place of the localhost:8081. How can I know the current Ip address ? And assuming I got to know the ip address, would it be possible for others to be able to access my jsp on my host ?
My operating system is windows 98 and modem is DSL. Tomcat server is 4.1
Please help and thanks a lot in advance.
