Hi,
I am using window xp pro and I would like to have the opportunity to send my clients to my machine local server to view art-work I am doing. How is it possible for me to send a url to my machine local server with a permission password? Is there any tutorial?

Man, it sounds like you are new to this, so my first response would be to hire a consultant to come in and set it up for you...  

There are also some various ways you can accomplish this, including outside sites that allow you to post your artwork and allow viewing by invitation only..

but, if you want to do this yourself, you will need to install IIS on your system (for Webpublishing), setup permission logons on the page you create, design the site, post your artwork, then open your router and port forward http 80 to your internal server IPAddress, which should be statically set...

Sounds easy, eh?  :)

BTW:  you don't necessarily need a domainname...  you can give your clients your IPAddress (outside interface of your cable / dsl modem)...  you can also use something called dynamic DNS if you want to use a 'freindly' name, and if your ISP connection is using dynamic IPAddressing for your connection....

For instance, you can access my website (which I run on an IIS Server from home) by using either:

http://www.doverproductions.com

or

http://24.160.178.164

Just an example of a free site that allows you to password protect your artwork:
