Newbye question on web sharing

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
Hello,
I have an Airport Extreme station, linked to the internet with a fix IP address, and a local Wifi network in my house. Adresses in the local network are 10.0.1.1 10.0.1.2 etc. All machines inside my house are macs.
On mac 10.0.1.2 I have put web sharing with Apache server running it.
Inside the local network, I can accesss it with http://10.0.1.2/~twohorned/, it works well.
But how to access it outside my local network ? I tried http://my-fix-ip/10.0.1.2/~twohorned/ but that does not work.
Thanks !

Hi
You need to use port forwarding on the Airport (if that's your network router) to point any web visitors from the outside world to your 10.0.1.2 machine. Configure your Airport using the Airport Utility, go into Manual Setup, and set up forwarding as follows:
your public IP / port 80 --> 10.0.1.2 / port 80
and save/update the settings on the Airport.
Outside visitors can now access your site at:
http://your-public-IP/~twohorned
(Note that you may not be able to access that address yourself from inside your network.)
