Remote access to server via ip

I have created a website using 'wordpress' (http://wordpress.org/) and i
have used my pc as a server(localhost).
I thought that anyone can visit my site with the url of the following
format:
my_ip/name_of_the_site 
where 
my_ip is the ip of my pc that i have used as localhost for my website.
But that is not working.So i am wondering if i can enable something
like remote access via ip.
I have openSuse 12.1 installed!
Please help me cause i am a newbie in that stuff.

Hi
You need to open port 80 on your router and forward to your internal ip
address that is running the server, you also need to open the port 80
on your server vi YaST firewall.

So you would have

external_ip_address<->router_ip_address<->server_ip_address

That means users would connect to;

external_ip_address/name_of_the_site

Welcome here.

It depends on where you system is. When your system is directly on the
intenet, direct access from everywhere should of course be possible. But
most people's system are on a LAN and have connection to the internet
through a router (provided by their ISP). That router will not forward
any incoming IP packets to a system on the LAN when not configured to do
so (of course for security, but also because there can be many systems
on the LAN, which one to use for HTTP packets to port 80?).

If this is your case, you should find out how to go into your router
(often the router has a web interface and you can use your browser to
it's IP address on the LAN) and find out how to do the port forwarding.

A second thing is that you can configure Apache to listen only to
certain IP addresses (or ranges). You could have configured it to serve
only incoming requests from the local host or the LAN.

And of course then the systems on the internet should use the IP
address of the router on the internet, not the address of your system on
the LAN.

When it is on the LAN of your lab, you first try should be if other
systems on the lab can use your web-server.

And, a not technical issue, most firms (lab or otherwise) would not let
you prgram their router and also not welcome their employees to have all
sorts of web servers open to the world.

If I unistall the iprint client it immediately starts to work. As soon as the client is installed you see no printers if you click on "View remote printers" . That only applies to Win7, on WinXP I did not see that behaviour (WinVista I don't use and my Win2008 server has no iprint client installed). Anybody else noticed that already? -- W.
