Allow web server to connect to the internet through router

Hi, I have a web server that works internally, I was wondering what ports I need to forward to it to allow outside browsers to connect to it.  

I don't need the domain to point to it, I can use the IP.  I do have a static address at this site.

Thanks all.

http - port 80
https - port 443

Typically, those are your ports on your server, hosts will connect to your server from any port (port number will be greater than 1024)

Same process, and IP, for https as for http. They only difference is specifying port 443 rather than port 80.
