Hi,

I'm having all kinds of trouble trying to get things
set up to see my website on the Internet. I know
people like to claim to be newbies, but I actually am.
:-)  

My machine (ethernet card) IP is 192.168.254.25 and
I'm serving on port 8080. I can bring up the site no
problem on my LAN- http://192.168.254.25:8080/, but
not outside.

My ISP is earthlink and it's a dynamic IP account.
Right now the WAN IP is: 68.164.84.178. Trying
http://68.164.84.178:8080/ doesn't work. I've opened
the port, 8080, on the router.

What should I look at to solve this? I have
unsuccessfully scoured the complete freebsd book,
handbook, and archives. But haven't found anything to
address this specific problem yet, although it seems
straightforward. If you think I don't understand
networks exactly, you are correct; but it's not for
lack of trying.

Thanks for help,
Micke
