Server 2008 website accessible from internet via router

I have Windows Server 2008 and a NETGEAR ProSafe VPN Wireless ADSL Gateway DGFV338 router.

I have the default web site set up on the server and the client machines can access this by entering the ip address of the server in the browser.  I also have a Xampp installation on the server but using port 8080 and the client machines can acess sites on this server by entering the server IP adress with port 8080.

All client machines and the server have internet access via the router.

I have a fixed IP address with our ISP.

I want to know the steps required to configure the server and router to allow connections from the internet to the web sites on the server.

I hope that is enough detail.

Thanks.

You need to allow TCP Port 80 (and 443 if you are using https), and Port 8080 (you don't say if thats TCP or UDP - but I guess TCP) inbound on the Netgear - you then  need to port forward those ports to the internal IP address of the web server.
