Ok used apache to set up a flash web page. I can see it when I do the localhost in the browser.

heres my setup. I have a linky router and forwarded port 81 (isp blocks 80). Since I dont have a domain name I am trying to use no-ip.com and have the no-ip client on the comp. my no-Ip address is fightingpiper.no-ip.com:81 ( I also did a URL redirect with em at jeffreytreml.no-ip.com).

in the Apache httdp.conf since I dont have a static IP I used for the listen- listen fightingpiper.no-ip.com:81

and used

servername fightingpiper.no-ip.com:81

for the servername.

one of these 2 lines must be wrong for others to view my page.

any hints or advice for a complete noob?

i run an apache server and the only line of code i had to modify was as follows..

# Port: The port to which the standalone server listens. Certain firewall
# products must be configured before Apache can listen to a specific port.
# Other running httpd servers will also interfere with this port. Disable
# all firewall, security, and other services if you encounter problems.
# To help diagnose problems use the Windows NT command NETSTAT -a
#
Port 8000 <-------this is all i modifed (isp blocks 80 also for me)
after that i used dynup.net for my IP addy and it works fine.
