View Full Version : Anyone know how to set up a server?
Ok, I downloaded a program called simpleserver from analogx.com. Now, I got the impression that it would allow you to set up a web server easily, but after reading the readme, (which tells very little) it might be only for your network. Now, does anyone know if there are any settings on my computer I might have to adjust for other people to be able to access website?
If the server is setup correctly, then you should be able to access it on your own machine via http://localhost/ or http://127.0.0.1/. If you have an always on connection to the internet then you will have a static IP address otherwise every time you log on you will have a new IP address dynamically assigned to you.
Depending on which version of Windows you are using, you can find out your IP address by using the IPConfig command from DOS.
I'd recommend downloading Apache as a server, it may give you far more than you need but you will have access to ASP pages (via Mod_perl) and all kinds of other goodies.
