Hi experts,

I have setup a web service and it is running on our server 2000.  I can access the service anywhere in the network by using the, but I can't from the internet.  What setting do I need to change to make it available to the internet via IP address?  Of course I would use the Servers Internet IP address, such as the one used for VPN, correct?  I just can't seem to figure out how to make it availble to the web.  And really, what I'd like to do is be able to access the web service from the internet, with proper authorization of course.  Thank you in advance for any help.

    Sorry, that last sentence should mean that I would like to be able to modify the webservice from over the internet.

    If you are running a firewall or Cable router you will have to open the port up on the router, your web server is port 80 by default. you must set up port forwarding and forward connections on port 80 to the web server
