Getting a server accessible on the internet

November 03, 2007 03:42AM
I'd like to have a server running as a host, so that it's accessible to people outside my local network. <br> <br>Basically I have this XP Pro desktop with IIS on it, and I want to use it to host (.net) webservices (and basic websites), accessible to the wide public (read: my friends :)). <br> <br>I'm behind a DSL router, so I suppose that means I need to by-pass that, to get to my server so I can get my external IP accessible. <br> <br>I won't need a domain name or anything. It's just going to be, either you know my IP, or you don't. <br> <br>I know bits and pieces about this sort of stuff, not the whole story, so any ideas/tips/links would be appreciated.

Port Forwarding and ISP restrictions

Statistically speaking...

That's not even vaguely true but ok.

The SANS Institute disagrees with you

Because, having worked with hundreds of windows machines over a decade...

Install Bitdefender, its $60, then use port forwarding.
