Sorry if someon asked the same question before. Had been searching for about 45 minutes and could not find my answer.

I am ASP program and have no problem to design and implement an intranet application either at home or at work behind the same network.

Right now I try to help my friend who is running a auto shop to set up a web page for customer's feedback and I did all programming and setup with window 2000 advanced server and everything works find on the laptop by typing localhpst or internal IP from other PC behind the same router.

There comes the question, how do I make this webpage available to outside after I register the domain name. There are others PC connected through the same router.


Thanks.

You need to set up port forwarding on his router to forward all inbound traffic to port 80 on that computer. Post the model of the router and I'll get back to you with specific instructions.

Thanks for prompt reply.

The router is Linksys, sorry if I spelled wrong. Currently he has IP camera setup so he can watch the store from his home and another PC connected too. I don't know the exact model but I believe it is very common one. If this is not enpugh I will get that info later on.

Once again , many Thanks.

type 192.168.1.1 into your address bar on either of the computers connected into the router.
It will ask you for a username and password, unless these have been changed, then they will be,
username : admin
pass: admin

once logged in, there will be many choices, select on the top navigation bar applications and gaming.
This will bring up port range forward

add whatever application name you want
the start will be : 80
the end will be : 80
protocol set as : both
the ip address will be the one off the server hosting the page.
just change the last 3 numbers to the same as the server ip address
then check the enable box

this should allow the router to let things through on port 80.

If this doesnt work, just ask and tell us what happens.
hope it helps
