I have a WinXP machine running apache (actually XAMPP) from which I have been creating a web site hoping to get an Intranet up and running. My main problem is that, I don't want to sound like a complete whiner, I wasted more than a month trying to get a Linux box which I planned to use as a server to connect to a MSSQL server without any kind of success. Nada. So before my supervisor starts getting fed up with me, I would like to put in production all the web pages that I have lately developed. What is a quick way to give users access to my PC? Like I said in the beginning, it is a Windows XP machine and it obtains its IP address automatically. I don't have much support from my IT group. I thought that I would only be developing web pages, but unfortunately, this task of administering the server fell in my hands and I have no expertise whatsoever. Any ideas? Please? Thanks! P.S. I have another question open also worth 500 points which I am willing to award in case I get this working quickly, so technically, this question is worth 1000 points.
