Subject:   can view site on LAN but not WAN????

Hi,
I've been trying to set up my G4 to run Dynamic web sites, my web site has been tested on P.C's and works fine on both LAN and WAN. But for some reason whenever i use my Mac to host the site it says "Forbidden 403" when trying to access the site from the internet but runs fine on my network. i thought it could be the dynamic content so i removed this making the site static and still no joy. the site is stored inside /library/WebServer/Documents/site folder/ which should work fine. The Mac is connected to a network of 4 Mac's and the internet connection goes through a hub and a router, do you think my router could be causing this problem????


cheers all.

    The "Forbidden 403" problem is simply the file permissions of the folder and files.
    They need to be 'Read only' for 'others', while I suspect at the moment that they are all set to 'No access'.
