I am really a newbie on web developing, please help!

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?

Actually you can set up the DNS to point to a 10.x.x.x network. The only people that can view it are the people in your school. With XP you can only have 10 people at one time viewing the site. There is no way to have people outside your network view this unless you can talk your admin into giving you a real ip on the firewall and redirecting it or just port 80 to your ip.

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.

In your "A" record instead of a real IP put the 10.x.x.x You can put whatever you want in a DNS server.

With XP you can only have 10 people at one time viewing the site.

Does the 10 person rule apply when one is connecting to a web server? I thought it was all an "anonymous" connection seen by XP as 1 person?

You don't need DNS to get to an IP address. They just do [10.6.10.170....]

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:

10.6.10.170 www.whateveriwanttocallmydomain.com

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.
