Web Server Setup

Hi All

I have a fibre optic link coming into my Linux Box (Fedora Core 2) with an outgoing ethernet adapter to my LAN. (So the Linux box obviously acts as a router) My LAN is small, consisting of 10 Windows based PC's and my PC running Redhat 9.

Everything works well, but I'd like to serve web pages from either the router or one of the Windows PC's using IIS.

Is this possible, since I have a public I.P. Address assigned by my ISP? The I.P. addresses on my LAN were set by me, not by DHCP.

Hope I've included all info needed

R :-)
the manual!

Setup Apache, and it works Great!!! Thanks.

yes of course it is ...
but since you say you wanna set it up on IIS, then i have no idea
how to do that, nor would i answer it since this is a linux fourm ..

if you wanna use your linux box, then you can use Apache. (which is
also something you can use on windows instead of using :| ISS :|)

when you are using a LAN it all comes down to ports, and depending on
which machine you serve the page on, then it would have that port open
and the linux router would point it to that internal address. ..

Install apache on your linux router. Don't even think about running publicly visible services inside your internal network, let alone on Windows.
