When configuring a Front Page web you need an IP address.
External if it's not behind a firewall such as the 216.254... or if behind the firewall a 192.168.xxxx.
How else would the world find the page?
I have a real hard time believing that it could be as complicated as you describe. Well that's what it seems to because I'm a newbie.
I was doing this with my internet applience (IPAD) where all I did was put in a passthru statement and the system received a request for a page at 22.214.171.124/abc.com it found it's way thru the network to the 192.168.1.25 for abc.com
A passthru statement looks something like this:
----> waterfall-landscaping.com <----
PASSTHRU PUBLIC_IP=126.96.36.199 IP_ADDRESS=192.168.1.64 PORT=80
PASSTHRU PUBLIC_IP=188.8.131.52 IP_ADDRESS=192.168.1.65 PORT=21
Wouldn't any system have to do something like the above in order to find the hosted page?
Shouldn't the suse/ispconfig set up be able to do this. You can't host an MS FrontPage on an Linux machine. And, I'm sure there are thousnds of hosted FrontPage web pages out there so some one is doing this...
