Im trying to setup a webserver at home.
I have read an online tutorial found at:
Its good for newbies such as myself, but does not cover everything.
My problem is that I cant get it to work.
What have I done so far?
My ISP uses static IP, therefore I use Zoneedit.com.
They gave me two nameservers which I should
login and enter at for example goddaddy.com (or whereever the domain namne was bought)
I have done that more than 72 hours ago.
Then, still at zoneedit.com, I set my IP for that domain.
That will be the IP that www.whatismyip.com
is showing me (external)
The thing is, that im using a D-link DI-604 to share the ADSL connection with
altogheter three computers. (One webserver)
When I view the settings for my router I can see that all three connected PCs
have their own IP number. Do they (IP) only exist in my "network"?
My server computer is running winXP and as webserver I use Apache.
In Apache I have set port 80 (default).
When I try localhost in the browser I get my test page working
(Classic "Hello world"). So, I guess the server is running!
In the router setting I have opened port 80 for incoming traffic.
I know that there is a lot of steps involved here, but any tip
There are three Pcs connected to the router and I have set the IP.
That is the external IP. From here, how do I "find" my server, which the router has
given another IP for?
By the way, I have searched for some tutorial which covers this. (without success)
Do you know any good tutorial which covers this at a newbie level, please post a link.
Im sorry for the low level question, but the only way to learn is to
deal with it, right???
Thanks / Martin
