Im trying to get apache web server up and running on my computer. but i have charter cable internet and they use dynamic ip. i can get to the web pages over the local but i cant connect outside the local network. Any help to get around the dynamic ip problem would be great. everything else seems to work.

Are you using a router? If so you will need to configure the router to forward port 80 to the IP address of the webserver. Its best to configure the webserver with a static IP address.

You can sign up with a free dynamic IP host site like www.noip.com. That you will always find the webserver no matter when your dynamic IP address changes.

thanks and yes i did configure my router. ill check out noip.com and see what i find.

What do you mean by local. Your LAN or the webserver itself.

Is there a firewall running on the webserver?

Charter blocks port 80.

Change your httpd.conf file to listen on port 81 instead, and set up a (free, probally) dymanic DNS name that will forward to yourfreedomain.ath.cx:81 instead of yourfreedomain.ath.cx

dyndns.com is a good one
