Apache server on a Broadband Connectiion
Posted on 2004-09-21
I have Xp pro and Apache 2 and PHP 4 with Mysql as well.I have a Maconi DSL router that
does not allow port forwarding , or it does not work ( thats as per the Router support desk atleast)
I have created a PPoE connection via windows Xp internet setup and I can access the Internet.
On that very same PC I have my web server setup and websites on that server can be viewed internally and externally without a problem.
Now what I have done is created a network on 5 PCs and My Lan accesses the internet via the server,similiar to Internet Connection Sharing.
i want to change the web server to another PC on the lan so basically the PC that will be connected to the router and eventually to the internet will not be the web server.
I I am stuck here,I know that if I had a router that supported port forwarding I would be able to do that but how do I direct the request that is made from the internet from the PC connected to the internet to another PC on that lan that is actiually running the web server.
I am also using dynamic dns as well.
