  1. Assign the router WAN port the IP your ISP Gave you in the router setup pages and you need to use only one

    You will then need to update the DNS sever page on the account that hosts your domain name and change the A record to the IP address you give the router

    Ok but, router may be blocking all incoming... then no more internet server. DMZ the server at the router.


  3. thnx for prompt reply :)
    i have draytek Firewall with ADSL2 router, is it ok or i search for better one
    second i have one server only, can i use it for other purpose too, means as a file server, so how to manage that inside my small LAN server available as well as outside
  4. yes you can but it all depends on the demand you expect on the server. If do plan on using it for other stuff don't put it a DMZ just setup the firewall and maybe the router to forward web requests to the ip of the server
