Actually what i am up to is I have deployed a servlet in the tomcat server and i want to access my site over the internet. I have created the server on my machine and the ip address is the fixed ip that i get from the service provider.
well i am quite unsure about networking and i do not know how to do that.please help me as i try to do it on my own. where do i configure my firewall?in my system i have windows xp professional and my win firewall is disabled. And how do i find and forward the internal ip?
It will be a great help to me. Thnx.

well first you would need a physical router connected to your network. something like a linksys router. If you are using a cable modem, sometimes the modem and router are built into one. if you go into your browser and type 192.168.1.1( which is pretty much the default unless the router was set up different) it should go to the homepage of the router. It will ask you to login. Again if you didnt set it up you would need to check with the manufacturer to get the default login/ password. From there it would be best to just contact the router manufacturer and have them walk you through port forwarding of port 8080 using tcp. Without knowing you hardware setup thats about all the help i can give. [ October 31, 2008: Message edited by: John Schretz ]
