I have a machine that has windows server 2003 on it. I am trying to make it a home server. I have iis installed on it and have placed a html web page in my wwwroot folder on the server. When I go to ipconfig on the server it tells me that my ip is 192.XXX.X.XXX. When I type that into my address bar on my server my html page pops up. Then I went to my router (Linksys WRT300N) and opened port 80 with Both for Protocol and pointed it to my server ip address and enabled it. Then on my server I went to whatismyip.com and it told me that my server ip address is 188.8.131.52 but when I have my friend on his computer type in that address he gets page can't be found.
I want to eventually use DNSEXIT on my server but I guess I have not set up my server correctly. Can someone give me the steps on how to set up my server 2003 so that when I have my friend type in 184.108.40.206 he will see my html page?
