Configuring IIS website for external access (from behind a router)

Hi everyone,

I've built an ASP.NET website that runs on WinXP Pro IIS at http://localhost/mysite. Now I want to make it available for www users (on the Internet) to access it.

I've spent the whole afternoon searching for how to do this. But I still can't figure out how to make it work.

My LAN is using a D-Link DSL-G604T Wireless ADSL Router. I connect to my residential ADSL via PPPoE. When I visit http://whatismyipaddress.com/, I see the following settings:

Proxy Server Detected!

Proxy Server IP address:
Proxy Server Details: bbcache-69.myisp.com

Proxy Reports IP as:,
(Unable to confirm.)

These are the settings when I do Start-->Run-->cmd-->ipconfig:

IP address:
Subnet mask:
Default Gateway:

When I go to, I get redirected to my router configuration page. But if I go to, I get a 404 not found error.

SO I configured my router to do Port Forwarding as described here.

Now when I go back to, I still get a 404 not found error!

What exactly am I doing wrong?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
