I think you need to post a little more info on the setup you have before anyone can help. e.g. what router your using, what type of service you have (nat/ no-nat), are you using a firewall, operating system etc etc

I agree we need more info on this but before you stick a web server anywere near the internet you must ensure it is full patched with all the security patchs or it could be atacked within seconds giveing people acces to you pc.

I basic terms you forward port 80 to your webservers ip.

Tim,
You said in an earlier post that you found IP forwarding, this is the right area.

You should be able to add an entry for port 80 and give it the internal IP address of your network card. If you are using windows 2000 or Xp try the following command from the dos prompt.

ipconfig /all

This will show you the Ipaddress of each network connection on your machine, you are probably using DHCP so will be allocated a number like 192.168.0.1 this is the number you put in your ip forwarding.

Testing is a pain as ususally the router does a loop back so you may need to resurrect your modem connection to be sure that the world can see you. Your web pages will appear as http:\\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\default.htm where xxx is your fixed ip address.

If all else fails why not make use of the web space you were allocated, its easy to ftp the site up there.
To ftp simply type ftp://ftp.plus.net in your explorer bar enter your user name and password (the one you use to get to this website) if all goes ok you will have two folders, one called htdocs the other logs. Put your html pages in the htdocs folder.

Tim, the slashes were the wrong way round in the above text should read http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/default.htm

your fixed IP will also have a DNS entry of warped.plus.com. So if your routing works you people should be able to see your default page at http://warped.plus.com/

Thanks a lot for all the help its been great I seem to have finnally cracked it

Now to hook up the officeConnect 25 firewall to my ALCATEL MTC150 router tried all the nessesary service configs.....

Well I tried and failed any clues anybody
Does the firewall have to have the allocated static IP ...but then what happens to my http serverHuh? I've only got one Static IP

Cheers
