I want to host my own web site, just for the hell of it, so I installed Abyss Web Server X1 2.0.6. I used Macromedia Flash 8 to create a simple flash page (.swf) I got a free domain name from dyndns.org (milkytech.homeftp.net) I think I configured the server properly as far as ports, and directory locations. I cannot log on to the website from a computer outside my LAN, but works fine with computers within LAN Windows Firewall is configured correctly (port 80 is open by default anyway) I even tried configuring the server to use port 1024 internally and port 80 externally...same thing...works locally, but not remotely. I've opened the ports on my router as well. Seems to me that if it works within my LAN it should work from outside it as well since my domain name in resolved to my public ip address. Remote Desktop works fine using that same domain name both with RDP Client and TSWeb. I have no problem accessing my ftp server (running on the same pc) with that domain name [However: I cannot seem to access my ftp server through a web browser, only with ftp client software (LeapFTP)] What am I doing wrong? I don't know too much about websites, just some basic html. Does the homepage have to be an index.html or index.htm file? the only file I have in the root folder is "Untitled-2.swf" (Flash). I know that file itself is good because if I go to another computer on my LAN and open internet explorer and type http://milkytech.homeftp.net it works!
