Subject Re: [users@httpd] probably darn rudimentary but still; what to do to get public with server
Date Tue, 11 Dec 2012 01:21:40 GMT
A static IP is recommended but there are services around that will track 
your connection IP and simulate a static IP.  They aren't very fast in my 
experience.  (very limited experience with them).

Also, you will need a reliable high speed connection to the Internet, 
depending on what you want to serve.   if you have only text html pages not 
all that fast will suffice.  If you want to serve a lot of pictures, then you 
will need something faster than the usual ADSL of 1.5 Mb down and 132 kb 

But before you do this, think about the security issues.  You will at the 
least need a firewall, preferably not the software firewall in your 
workstation, and probably a router to handle your workstation separately 
from your server.  These two functions don't coexist too well.

Also, think about your content.  As soon as you put it on the Internet you 
have copyright issues.  Do you own the rights to the content?  Can you 
maintain it?  Are you sure that what you say is correct?  I could go on for 

But you are off topic for this discussion group.
