You must set a port forward on your router/modem at least for port 80 to the (local) IP for your server.

Beware, this can be dangerous as anyone can access this website in your private network.

How to do this? You mean set NAPT? –  Ognjen Sep 5 '10 at 20:34
Depending on your setup, something like NAPT might be available for you. In most cases though, you will have to look for something called port forward or a variant thereof. Actually, NAPT is a combination of normal NAT and port forwarding, if I remember this correctly. –  Sven Sep 5 '10 at 21:48
