    Well guys i think this is also a kind of web development so posting my query here ...

    I have made a cool web server which me & my all network guys can access locally by is my local ip address & 8001 is the port where my server is running ... Now i want to make this server accessible all over internet ..

    May be u`ll say to reg. it ... Wel li have did that too ... I have reg. a host name http://nomi.ath.cx & they auto detect my IP that is 221.113.223..112 some thing like that .. Now when i open this nomi.ath.cx another site opens not my server ... Can any one tell me how to resolve nomi.ath.cx to my local made server ..

    Well i am using proxy server & my gateway is .. is there any routers`s or port fwding involved?? I just need to configure it to my local web server so that my local made server can be accessible from all over net...

    Help plz ...

    It's a NAT (Network Address Translation), the system running the web server should have a public IP address not a private IP address. Or else, you can configure your router to forward all requests to a computer on your private LAN.

    since http://nomi.ath.cx is a subdomain of ath.cx you will need them to forward port 80 (http) to your external ip address (whatismyip.org). You will then need to open firewall to forward port 80 to your internal IP ( ) and port 8001.

    Right now nomi.ath.cx is pointing to If that is the correct Ip then you are halway there. There is also no reverse dns setup for that IP, so if you plan to send mail from that address it will most likely be blocked by PBL listing companies. Since you are running a web server you should also look at setting up a dns server to help resolve your domain names.

    jwshepherd New Member is the address of your router ( most likely )

    221.113.116 is not a valid IP address

    You can check your external IP ( also known as Public IP ) by going to whatismyip.org
