Can i serve web page from XP

July 16, 2009 at 06:53:46
Specs: Windows XP
I have a working website that runs perfect on
my local network. XAMPP and www.co.cc i
can type a domainname.co.cc and page work
on all the computers on the home LAN. But i
want to access it through www. not just the
LAN.

I think the LAN settings need modification, I'm
not sure where to start.

IP addresses are not the easies to track
Thanks

First off, try making sure you have the port 80 forwarded through your router.

See NAT on your router also if using private IP address's locally.

Be sure to check with nslookup www.(FQDN)

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I Have set the port 80-HTTP and 443-https to my laptop on the
wireless network both on the modem and on the wireless router
still not working.

William the fact that your site works makes me not going to stop until i have done it too. Thanks for the support

I have noticed several different IPs here... My computer-192.168.0.111. my wireless router-192.168.1.1 the modem-192.168.0.x, the ISP-72.27.x.x which do i really use at www.co.cc?


is there a video for this somewhere.

You should either turn off DHCP on your router so only the modem can give IPs and have port forwarding on the modem for port 80 to your webserver/laptop or you can have port forwarding on the modem to 192.168.1.1 and then have another port 80 forwarding on you wireless router to the ip of your webserver

I used Google and http://www.diywebserver.com/ as my main sources for my site. I actually had to break down and have my site hosted for free from x10hosting.com because I couldn't keep my computer on all the time, but when I had it hosted from my computer, I used those main sources.
