I have installed Suse 10,1. I am using a wireless internet service
from AT&T. Everything is working - but - I have made a web server and
I want a colleague of mine to be able to access it.
I do 'ifconfig' and get an IP address and send it to him. He then told
me that the address was for a WAN and not a LAN - oops! (I sent him
192.168.1.67) - see below
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:19:21:1F:EF:8C
inet addr:192.168.1.67 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::219:21ff:fe1f:ef8c/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

TX packets:103699 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:155933054 (148.7 Mb) TX bytes:13910295 (13.2 Mb)
Then, I use a website "no-ip.com" to see that the IP address that they
think I am broadcasting from is: 22.214.171.124.
Of course, when trying to use it (http://126.96.36.199:8080/), it
stalls. Leaving me to believe that this is some kind of firewall or
Again, I am running Suse 10.1. What can I do to allow my colleague to
see my web server?
