How to Webserver

I have recently bought a Dell precision workstation 450mhz, with a win2k advance server.  I would like to run a webserver from home through my Cable connection.  I have also obtain www.net and a Dlink(614+) broadband router.  I have setup the DNS server to those that " www.zoneedit.com "( free service ) in my www.net account. It Seems like I have a static Ip cause it hasnt changed since I got the service....I have been following the tutorial on " www.dslwebserver.com/ " but for some reason I can't get it to work!

Here a bit more specification of my setup:
www.koqui.net ( from godaddy )

Zone Edit.com (dns Service )
IP address:
www.koqui.net > myipaddress
koqui.net> myipaddress

DNS servers:
 ns12.zoneedit.com    64.246.26.64
 ns8.zoneedit.com    216.122.4.151

Dlink router:
Port Foward : 196.182.X.XXX port 8058

Server IIS:
deafult webpage
ip address: 192.168.X.XXX
port: 8058

Hope someone may help with these specs, I know I have something wrong somewhere.
Thank you

Is there a specific reason you are trying to host on port 8058?
To access your site from the outside you would need to enter http://www.yourdomain.com:8058

Have you checked if this port if open from the outside? Is your port 80 not open? You can check if its open
on http://scan.sygate.com/pretcpscan.html

Dlink router:
Port Foward : 196.182.X.XXX port 8058

This is not the complete NAT entry is it? You should have External Address to Internal Address.

Can you ping your domain from the outside? You could do a ping or a trace route here http://www.tracert.com/cgi-bin/trace.pl to see if it all works.

One more thing, the IP you are pointing your DNS records to, that is the IP the router get's when connecting to your dial up? And this is also the one wher eyou made a NAT entry for?
