Hi. I'm able to host my web site using IIS (on XP) within my computer. I have a static IP address that I'm using. When using my computer, 127.0.0.1 works, my static ip works, and "localhost" all work. However from any other computer, typing in my static IP address doesn't work. Pinging my computer from my computer works but pinging it from another computer gets a "response timed out" message. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

For the properties of your website, what IP and port number do you have listed?
Do you have a firewall that might be blocking incoming traffic?
