Hi,

in winbox, click 'IP->firewall' and choose 'NAT' tab.

click '+', for 'destination address', choose 'dstnat' chain put the extenal (live) IP address of your router.  choose 'tcp' as protocol, enter '80' as destination port.

on 'action' tab, choose dst nat as action, and put '192.168.1.2' in the 'to address' field.

Now try accessing the external IP address again you should see your web server instead of routerBoard page.

Cheers.

are you accessing it from inside the web, or outside?

if you are inside, look at this reference:

Hi,

what does "no luck" mean?  Are you seeing any result?  Time-out, "page cannot be displayed" message, error message?

are you accessing the site by IP address, or by domain name?

can you see the web site when accessing by the local LAN address?  Did you try accessing from somewhere outide your network?  (i.e. from a friends house or other business or public internet station)?

Cheers/
