192.192.192.2 doesn't appear in the address. Only 34.34.43.23 should. You have to forward requests to your router (the way to do this will depend on your router) on port 80 to 192.192.192.2, and then use http://34.34.43.23/phpbb2/index.php as the URL.

and if you're not sure how to forward ports on your router check out this site for some good help. http://www.portforward.com/ Smile

So basic steps would be


  • Point domain name to internet IP (34.34.43.23)
  • tell your router to forward any requests on port 80 to the machine with the webserver (192.192.192.2) (using the site above for help if needed)
  • make sure your webserver machine is set up to correctly handle requests on port 80 and display the correct folder/site.
