    I am finally getting ready to set up my own personal website using the Apache server built into os x. However, I am having one major issue. I can view the site fine on my home network with the url This is my router ip so when people from outside my network try to view the site they can't. So to make this simple, what would be the address for others to see my site. I am running a cable modem, with a linkysys router.

    Are you forwarding inbound and outbound traffic on port 80? All you need is 80 outbound for the server, since regular web traffic coming in will be on 80 inbound.
