Configuring Shared Connections

If your computer uses a shared Internet connection, that is, one provided by Internet Connection Sharing or a connection-sharing router device, you’ll have to set up the sharing service to direct incoming Web server requests to your computers. Otherwise, they’ll stop at the connection sharing computer or router; it won’t know what network computer they’re intended for.

Connection forwarding is described in Chapter 19, “Connecting Your LAN to the Internet.” You’ll need to forward port 80, the HTTP service, from the connection sharing machine to your computer. With Microsoft’s Internet Connection Sharing service on a computer running Windows XP, you can simply specify your computer’s name as the target of the forwarded requests.
