TaniaC Posted July 5, 2007 Report Share Posted July 5, 2007 OK, I already KNOW this is a very stupid question, but that has never stopped me asking them in the past.... I have been slogging my way through the process of setting up a Static IP and Port Forwarding as described on www.portforward.com, but have a very basic question. My ISP (aaNet in Australia) states that they provide a "Static IP free of charge". Am I right in assuming this is a static "external" IP (whatever the correct term is), and in order to do all the Port Forwarding stuff, I still need to set up a Static IP on my "internal" LAN? Please, no cries of derision or scorn - until a week ago I didn't even own a computer, so the learning curve is VERRRRRRRRRRY steep! In fact, if anyone knows a good website that could be translated as "The Idiot's Guide to how IP addresses and thingys work", please point this idiot in the right direction!
