Server access

  loco 20:48 29 May 2003

I have built my own server (hardware & software).

Would you please give me some guidelines of how my computer can be accessed by someone else on the internet (e.g. requesting some files) , further, to set up a website for my class.

when you say software do you mean a Network OS (2000 Server, Advanced Server, Novell Netware 6.x etc). Are you planning setting it up as an ftp/web server or web only? if you are running XP Pro or w2k, you can install IIS (add/remove programs in control panel then select add/remove windows components) to setup web and ftp. Search on google for "IIS Tutorials" for more info. Don't know much about web pages, cover that next year...

Thank BBez:

My server will work as ftp/web.

I found names like: domain name, static IP address, purchasing domain name, subdomain, etc. Could you please make sense of this.

How do I do all of the above, or I do not need to think about it.

For example will my ISP allows me to have unrestricted traffic to and from my server. What to do?
