How do i set up a web server

By rgajjar ·
Guys
I recently got one of those wonderful broadband cable connections and also obtained my own domain name. What I like to do is set up my public DNS to point to my webserver. Here's the problem. I have a home network with the pc containing 2 network cards one going out on the internet and the other on my private ip network. All client pc's access the net using NAT. So how do i allow one of the client pc set up as a webserver to be seen as a webserver on the internet. IT works ok on the pc set up as a router as it contains a public ip address. I appreciate any help on how I can do it..

Regards
Rak

I'd download and install apache web server install this onto the machine which connects you to the internet.

The documentation from apache will show you how to host your site. You will probably need to tell the company that holds you domain name your IP on the net (the public one) so they can direct to your DNS.

You may also want to look into getting a firewall installed.

Thanks for your help not quite what i wanted but i appreciate your help. Sounds like the answer you gave is what i already know. I need some way of redirecting requests to my public ip address to the webserver on the private side.
