While it's not called Port Forwarding on the router setup, I'm certain that is what I've set up. Do you know what an ISP, earthlink, in this case, might do to keep you from serving pages? I'm using another port from 80, because I just get the ISP modem status page when using the dynamic IP with the normal 80 port. I'm afraid I'm just frustratedly baffled. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? The New Yahoo!
