Hi,

I need to let users to access a web application(via www or anyhow), which is deployed in Tomcat or Apache web server , in my machine, without publishing with a service provider. can i achive such a thing ?

( Basically , im asking whether is it possible to use my own PC as a real web server, so that remote clients can access my application with a URL being provided ... )

i need such thing only for testing purpose.

when im connecting to the internet, my ip address is, say, 125.230.xx.xx
if so , if i access my web application thru my web browser as follows
[125.230.xx.xx:60...] ...

can any user, across the world, access to my application by typing the above URL ? i need to achive such a thing.. please advice me on this ..

Thanks in advance
Saj

Yes, if your Internet Provider allows port 80 being open, you can use your home PC.

If port 80 is blocked, you can route HTTP requests to a different port that you can open.

Ah, sorry, I just noticed that you already specified port 60.

hi txbakers ,

i need to know one more thing .... how can i know what are the ports that are not blocked by the ISP or any opened port numbers ...

PS : i started my tomcat in port 60 , n told one of my friends to ping ( from another network ) to my ip ... but it had failed .. was it needed to mention the port number also while PINGing ?

thanks

Yes, they would have to include the port in the ping, but the best way is to contact the ISP directly. Many of the home ISPs will not allow web traffic on any port.
