    it may sound silly, but here goes.
    If you're running Win98 or WinXP - try this.
    Start > RUN > type "conf.exe" ENTER
    That will open Netmeeting
    Configure it and run it.
    When it opens up, it will be similar to a yahoo/msn messenger.
    On top - click HELP - About - That will show your PC's IP address.

    Sorry I can't recall any easy/short way at present.

    Hope it helps
    peace

    You have two options - 1. get a static IP from your ISP (it will be quite costly)... 2. There are a few services that let you host with a dynamic IP such as http://dynamicdns.constanttime.com/

    Just forward your port 80 to your PC, and disable remote administration of the router.. I dont have BSNL, so cannot give you exact instructions..

    @pop143, you have started several threads across the board with different small queries based on the same topic of self-hosting. I think on all the threads that I saw, I have given a link to the this thread. I think this thread should solve all your queries and you need not start new threads.

    Anyway, as regards this query, you can have a look at http://www.no-ip.com. It gives you static DNS for your dynamic IP.

    But IMHO, if you are even a little serious about your web-site and have long term plans, don't host your site on your own! Its not worth the effort and expense.

    Virtual Server
    This setting allows the remote users to access Web or FTP services via public IP, which will be automatically redirected to local servers in LAN. Depending on the requested service (TCP/UDP port number), the device redirects the external service request to the appropriate server within the LAN network. Some well-known virtual services are already defined in the Virtual Server Table. You may click Edit icon to change the options or Delete icon to remove the option. If you would like to You will only need to input the LAN IP address of the computer running the service and enable it.
    Name - The name referencing the virtual service.
    Private IP - The server computer in LAN will provide the virtual services.
    Protocol Type - The protocol is used for the virtual service.

    Private Port - The port number of the service is used by the Private IP computer.
    Public Port - The port number on the WAN side will be used to access the virtual service.
    Schedule - You may set the specific time to enable virtual services via "Schedule" option. If selecting "Always", the particular service will be allowed to use all the time. But if selecting "Time", you may set the time frame to enable the service. And when accessing the device outside the scheduled time, the service will be disabled.

    Example:
    If you have a Web server that you wanted Internet users to access at all times, you would need to enable it. Web (HTTP) server is on LAN computer 192.168.1.25. HTTP uses port 80, TCP.

    Name: Web Server
    Private IP: 192.168.1.25
    Protocol Type: TCP
    Private Port: 80
    Public Port: 80
    Schedule: always
