Making your XP as Internet Web Server





monzoncf
You can make your Windows XP PC as an Internet Web Server right from your home.

Be sure you have:

- Internet Connection (of course...) * either Dial-up or Broadband but Broadband is highly recomended.

- An HTTP Server (ex. Apache, IIS, etc.)

- A DNS server ( try DynDNS for free sign up)

- Static IP Address*

* if you have a Dynamic IP Address you can download the automatic IP Changer to eg. DynDNS.


First, Configure your Http Server
Then, assign your Public IP to access your systems Local IP Address
Then, if you are using a Broadband or DSL modem configure it to port forward to your assigned port.
last, Check your Homepage....

if you see your page then you successfully turn your pc into a web server...

And if your site gets popular, your internet connection will start to suck because all the visits to your site are using it.

That's when you get hosting if you can do it the free way. In Australia we are a world away from you guys in terms of "broadband" internet connections, I have a 256kbps upload speed which is far to little for a website, and to make it worse 10 GB of usuage which means there are far too many negatives to make it worth my time!

But what are we crapping on about? If you don't need more than 250 MB Frihost is as good as it gets! Except my site seems to go down every day for about 30 mins for some reason, but I'm not certain the siteup time thing is right ie. I don't have confidence in it. But then again, I don't want to leave my computer on all the time so 30 mins a day I can live with.
