Hey sorry for pointing you out but the help you have given me has worked and you seem to know alot about the router. I'm still having trouble with the web hosting. I setup the site on my machine just fine, followed the steps and everything. Now when i go to connect to it, says page cannot be displayed. I think its an issue with the router. Before you had told me to put in the ip http-server command. When i did that it would bring up a login box to log into the router. Then you told me to remove that and so i did. When i remove it i get the no page can be displayed error. I'm thinking maybe i got the login box because i am physically connected to the router so it may think i am trying to connect to it, and people that are trying to connect wont get that message because they are not connected as i am. I hope that made sence to you? But there is no way for me to try it because i only have one connection to the internet and the only other way is to use the connection at school, but i am suspended for fighting and wont be going back until friday :/ I'm only 17. Anyway, should i be able to connect to my own site if its on my network VIA the IP thats used for my router? I only have one IP: That ip is dynamically assigned from my ISP through my E0/0. Then i have my ip nat inside on the E0/1. And the ip scheme i used for that is with a subnet of Now the computer with the website running is ip I don't know what else to do, i posted in the web forum and got alot of problems from people and just don't need to deal with it right now... if you want email me and i will give you a telnet password and you can see whats going on in my router. alexanderthegreat85@cox.net

Are you sure your web site is listening on port 80?

Everything looks like it should be working just fine.

I'll email you tomorrow. Have to go make peace with the wife..

Does your web server have the right default gateway/subnet mask?

I still think it is something in the web server, not the config, except that it won't accept the "extendable" tag.

Its strange, I configured the website properly. The only options i have for that is what port to use and the IP. I can either use any IP it finds, or specify an IP for it to use. When i try it on the computer running the site it works with the static IP ( I don't even have to type port :80 at the end. When i try the dynamic ip, it doesn't work. It's very weird. The only thing i can think of is that my ISP is somehow blocking port 80? Is that possible?

Also i did notice that 'extendable' command didn't work when you told me to add it in the configuration. The IOS is the newest one i believe so i don't know whats going on with that.

The only thing I can think of is formatting that PC and reinstalling the operating system so i know that the computer is fresh.

The webserver should have the right gateway/subnet, it does go online and do everything else...

You won't be able to get to the public IP from the inside. It's just the way nat works.
Can you get to it from another local PC by using the private IP?

Yes, the ISP can certainly block inbound port 80 - and often do. You're buying a home Internet connection and if you read all the fine print of the contract, I'll bet it says that you can't set up servers. The ISP's want a business-class fee for permitting "business" servers.

Well what if i decide to run it on port 81? Will it work then? I would just have to change that command in the router to port 81, am i correct?

No, I have not tried from a different pc on the same network, i will try that when i get home. I am in school now.

I feel as though i will never be able to accomplish this..

when i try to connect from another pc via private IP, it prompts me with a username and password. Now the question comes up with does this drive need to be shared?? And if so what users need to be added etc, etc. This shouldn't be so complicated!

Your server should still be listening on port 80. You can set the router to listen on a higher port, ie. 8080 and forward that to port 80 on the inside:

ip nat inside static tcp 80 interface eth 0/0 8080
