I am a university student living in dorm where my local area network ip is 10.6.10.170. I am currently doing my final year project on asp.net web services. I set up my web site using IIS 5.0 on a XP.
Is it possible for the others to access my website on the Internet? How should I configure the IIS?
(Coz I don't have a real ip)
is it possible to make it like: [10.6.10.170...]
Do I need to need to make it through the DNS server in order to have a domain name?
There is a good chance that your ip will change so you may have to update your ip sometimes. Do a search for dynamic dns for some information to automate that.
[10.6.10.170...] will work but only the people at your school can see it. Go to one of your neighbors and type that in and see if it works. If it does not there is nothing you can do.
If you have access to the people's machines, you can bypass DNS altogether. Just put an entry in their hosts file (\<windows directory>\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.). The entry should look like this:
Then in the web browsers they can just put in www.whateveriwanttocallmydomain.com into the address line and it will get to your web site.
