what kind of server is it

basically, set up the router to route requests to the domain, to the local ip address

or...
You can edit the local hosts file.

This file is located here:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Open the file called 'Hosts' with notepad.

Follow the directions contained within the file and add the server name and IP address.

you can also set a dns server, how many computers on the network?

if it is extremely little editing the host file might be optimal

Cool, If I use openDNS, can I point the domain to my public IP?

Thanks again , it is Windows server 2008 iis
Ess Kay

this is how to set up the iis

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323972

to find the ip address if the server, go onto the computer where you are hosting, go to RUN->> cmd
type
IPCONFIG
it will give you the internal IP address

if this is html, the port is 80


then: type the gateway address into a browser, it will connect you to the router. enter cridentials and find the forwarding tab (or configurations)  
forward port 80 to (server ip port 80 )

then the internal settings are done, now go to domain manager (godaddy or whatever), and forward www.yourdomain.com    to your external ip


to find external ip  type 'my ip' in google

it will take up to 72 hrs to update DNS records and have your connection work so if you will not see it right away
then its done









hope this helps
