Home web server ip configuration!
Posted on 2004-10-04
Hey there guys and gals,
I need some help. Once upon a time there was a really good page on the internet that showed exactly how to set your ip configuration to make your computer live on the internet so that you could host a web or ftp server using IIS. I have done this before but problem is I totally forgot how it was done and the magic page is nowhere to be found. Further more there is next to NO information on the net that explains how to set the TCP/IP ip setting to accomplish this.
I’m running IIS on Windows XP Pro behind a Linksys BEFSR41 router. I have the router forwarding ports 21 and 80 and have set my firewall to allow incoming and outgoing access to these ports. I have also turned the firewalls off completely so this is not the issue. I have a cable connection that is issuing me a static IP.
Currently the router is acting as my DHCP server and issuing my computer an IP in the 168.192.0.x range. What I need to know is how to configure my TCP/IP settings to allow my web server to go live. What should my gateway be, IP, etc…
Any help or links to resources will be greatly appreciated.
