I always config router / port forwarding, when I try to build a local web server IIS7 / Apache.

But this time, I don't have access to control router, we have any software, any ways can help to build a local web server without port forwarding / config router ?

( sorry, if just a stupid question, but I want to know :D )

If the router happens to have UPnP enabled you can configure the port forwarding without admin access! there are also various tools and a windows component to configure this. – shiznit123 Sep 1 '11 at 19:03

If your computer has a publicly routeable IP, and there is no firewall enabled on the router, or between the web server and the Internet, then you don't need to do anything.
