I am struggling to understand how a network works, specifically a home network, if I wanted to configure an external facing website.
Say I have 4 windows computers. They are all connected to a router which in turn is connected to the internet. I understand that all the computers will have private ip addresses and that these will map to one public IP address from the router.
If I have iis installed and working on one machine, is it possible to route a request through to that website without having to muck around with port forwardining?
For examples, if my web address internal is 192.168.1.12/testpage.html. If my router IP address is 220.127.116.11, can (as long as my firewall allows) call my testpage by calling 18.104.22.168/testpage.html? How will the router know what to do with this request?
