Question Public Access of Internet using Private IP


Hi,
Plz help me. Is it possible to configure Web Server to acces Internet from any
client computer - i have one public IP from an ISP. Now I want to access my Web Server
using it's original IP ( which is a private or Local IP ).
Is it possible to tag Public and private IP, so that user will type my private
IP from there browser to access my Web server over Internet.
Please help.

Private IPs are not visible on the internet at all, so your users would not be able to type them in to reach your web server. The only IP they would see is the public one from your ISP. You should be able to use your router to send people to your internal (local) IP of your web server though.
