Do I need to configure my router? Register a DNS? I've spent the better part of a few hours searching for this info, and you would think that there would be tons of walkthroughs/trouble shooting pages on this, but I have yet to find any. Please help me out with some advice or at least point me to some useful resources.
Regards and thanks in advance.

It said I had to forward 80 to 80 and 443 to 443, but that didn't work so instead I just tried one row. I set the external port to 80 and the internal to 8080 and I put in the static IP I created. But I get the following message:
"Port overlap occurred! Please change your entry!"
I change the protocol from UDP to TCP and that doesn't give me error, but I am going to be using youtube api for my web app and possibly streaming video, so I'm pretty sure I am going to need UDP protocol as well. Any suggestions?
So this is my setting so far:
App name: Apache External Port: 80 Internal Port: 8080 Protocol: TCP(Leaving this as both gives me "Port overlap occured!" error) IP address : I just change this to the static IP I set up Enabled: YES
Any resource or configuration suggestions would be appreciated.
so, i guess the prob is not w/setting up my ports b/c my isp is going to block me no matter what i do (don't get comcast if you can help it)
i set up exact same apache install on my buddies server and it works fine for accessing outside of local network. so i guess you need to make sure it is even possible for you to host given your isp's restrictions.
thnx for help though, i def learned a lot even though i didn't achieve the desired result.
