    Help hosting a website from a home PC


    Hi,
    I have a webserver that is connected to a hub (D-LINK). The hub is connected to my cable modem. I want access to the webserver from the internet. Since I am using DHCP I am using dyndns.org to redirect traffic. However, I am unable to access the webserver from the internet. I am running windows XP. Any help is appreciated.

    If you have a hub, check your webserver configuration.

    If you have a router or firewall or both, you will need to open port 80 to the outside world.

    Thank you. That did it. I had the configuration up to the hub right but never though to check the webserver.
