I just got the HTTP server running with Apache on my computer. The picture is a page requested from the Berkeley computer. The IP points to my home router, and HTTP requests (port 80) will be forwarded to my computer instead of my roommates' computers. Anyway, we are using not dynamic IP of this moment, so the ip shown in the picture will change. Now I can do all the SSL, SQL, shell all on my computer. The server for does not allow me to perform cp commands, that sucks.
