  Apache Web-Serving with Mac OS X: Part 3
Subject:   Outside users can't connect
Date:   2002-02-03 00:22:04

I am new to web serving, so please excuse me if I miss something seemingly obvious.


I have several computers connected to a Linksys Etherfast Wireless Access Point + Cable/DSL Router with 4 port switch, including a Powerbook using Airport, a PowerMac G4, and two Windows PCs. This is connected to a Cisco DSL Router, which receives a dynamically assigned IP address. I started the Apache server just fine, and I can access the web pages fine since I'm on the LAN, but outside users cannot access this website. I realize that this probably has something to do with the dynamic IP address, and the firewall created by my Linksys device, but how do I get around this? What do I need to do in order to have a web server that everyone can see?

    Thanks for posting this. I too have a PC and a Mac networked with a router (SMC) and airport base station. My Mac's IP address is dynamic and my router has a firewall. I can't see what's on my apache web server on my other computer. There must be a way around this!
