Server not accessible outside of home network

Fedora 1 doesnt connect outside of them network. im behind a router and connected to that router is the fedora box and 3 xp home machines. when you try to connect to the fedora box from on of those 3 xp machines it works fine, from behind the network. but when u put a proxy server up and type in the address nothing happens it just comes back with an error message. i do have a the right DNS servers configured and i double checked the ip address i used at dyndns.com. i also tried to connect to the server from my friends house with no luck.

Your router has to be set up with port-forwarding to route the appropriate packets to your Fedora box. A proxy doesn't have anything to do with this.

You need to put your machine under DMZ zone.

Go to DMZ setting enable it and put the IP of that machine (Internal IP such as 192.168.0.x) to allow it to be accessible from outside

i tried looking in httpd.conf and playing around with a few things. i have posted a copy of httpd.conf attached to this message in hopes that someone would be able to tell me what i need to change to get apache to work.
