Setting up a home web server

By mitli2008 ·

I have a Netgear DG834GT, a static IP address and a Windows 2003 SBS. I want to set up a small website so that I can upload data to my server from outside.

I am not sure how to set up the DG834GT router to direct the request to that page.

Any help/tips will be greatfully received!

OK, a little short on info in your post but I think I can helkp you out.
My assumption is that the static IP is your outward facing IP and the Netgear router has several either static or reserved IPs for internal use. set up PAT (Port Address Translation) to send all packets for ports 80 and 443 to your server. port 80 is http and port 443 is https. the specific directions are on pages 5-6 and 5-7 of your manual please tell TR if this was helpful.

Sorry, yes, static IP is outbound facing given by my ISP. I also have a static ip within the network set up for the web server.

Thanks for the pointer re PAT. Will dig out the manual (or download it!) and give it a shot tonight!

port 80 huh

by apontel In reply to you want to use pat.

ISP's will block port 80, when they don't want you to have a home server.....yet this too can be overcome
I have a dynamic IP, no access to port 80 and a web site on my windows machine....
I believe the IP I see when I ipconfig is seem familiar
