Thread: accessing site

    accessing site

    Hi, I have a small network (3 PC's) 2 win2k 1 redhat 9.0. The linux box is running apache. all 3 PC's connect to web via adsl router. the linux box has a website on it that I want to view from the web. I can access this site through its lan ip. But if I want a friend to look at from his PC how do I go about it? do I have to get a domain name?

    any help appreciated.

    BobNZ, does your ISP allow for users to run web sites from home computers? Many ISPs will actually try to prevent this.

    If your host allows you to run a web site you do no need to get a domain name. EIther use your IP address or use for your URL.

    Bob, you need to access the router and tell it to route all incoming requests via port 80 to the linux box's local IP.
