I am trying to setup a web server on my network.
I have roadrunner with static ip and sonicwall router/firewall.
I have installed Apache on a box with windows xp. The IP of the box is 192.168.105.210
I have a DNS Server 65.32.X.XX
and an Alternate DNS Server 65.32.X.XX

If i type in http://192.168.105.210 inside the network the apache page pulls up. I want to be able to view the page outside of the network.

What needs to be changed in the config file to make this work? What else do I need to do?

192.168.x.x is a private IP address it cannot be viewed externally.  It is in a group of iP address defined in rfc 1918 (http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/cgi-bin/rfc/rfc1918.html) that are private.  You need to set up NAT (network address translation) between your public address on your router and your private address.  This is probably in the config of your sonicwall

I found "one to one NAT" would this be it?

It has Add Range
Private Range Begin, Public Range Begin, Range Length

That sounds about right, the private range would probably be 192.168.105.210 - 192.168.105.210 (or maybe 211) and your public range would be your rea static IP from your router to itself or maybe plus one.  Then you can try http://your_public_static_ip

You should check if you provider allows traffic out on port 80

If port 80 is not open then your out of luck and either need to host on a different port or talk with your provider.
