Application Example: Make a Local Web Server Public
If you host a web server on your local network, you can use port forwarding to allow web
requests from anyone on the Internet to reach your web server.
To make a local web server public:
1. Assign your web server either a fixed IP address or a dynamic IP address using DHCP
In this example, your modem router always gives your web server an IP address of
2. On the Port Forwarding / Port Triggering screen, configure the modem router to forward the
HTTP service to the local address of your web server at 192.168.1.55.

3. (Optional) Register a host name with a Dynamic DNS service, and specify that name on the
Dynamic DNS screen of the modem router.
