Gserver,

I have moved this to the Apache topic where I think you will have a better chance of getting a solution.

If you don't have a router, then how is anyone supposed to get to your webserver? Your webserver must be accessible from the Internet.

If you do not have a public IP address, then you must have some device (usually a router) that performs port-forwarding and network address translation (NAT) to allow computers on the Internet to see your webserver.

What is your Operating System, Apache version, and any other network server software that may be running?

Any antivirus or software firewall (zone alamrm, sygate, and such) installed on your machine (specific to windows env).

Sal -

Are you trying to just have people on your local network (intranet) see the site, or are you trying to have people on the general internet see the site?  

PsiCop is very correct - if you want the general population to see your welsite, your webserver must be accessible from the internet.  This means that you either must have a static ip address assigned to you from your connectivity provider (the public IP address that he alluded to), or use the other methods he has metioned to  route the requests to your computer.  

Additionally, you should make certain that your ISP (the company that provides your location's access to the internet) doesn't filter out requests for web server requests (typically, port 80).

Samri is very correct as well - antivirus and/or software or hardward firewalls could be filtering the requests from reaching your server - this would affect local (intranet) access as well as internet access.

GServer,

If your Question was not answered, then you should ask a Moderator to delete it and refund your points. I'd rather you did that than stick me with a grade of C.
