    Just to be sure I understand my acronymns...LAN is for people on my
    network, and WAN is for people on the "outside"?

    I go to school at SUNY Albany. I've started up the Apache server in the
    sharing control panel. I'm running Mac OS X v10.3.8 on a new Mac mini.
    I have not upgraded the RAM from 256 meg.

    I have a simple website mostly created wiht pictures and exported from
    iPhoto. On the local network, ResNet, people can load up the pictures
    pretty quickly. Off-network, mileage may vary. Some people say it's
    average speed, other people say that they quit after waiting 4 minutes
    for three pictures (which are 50-60k each).

    I'm getting really frustrated, especially because the school network is
    saying that it's something on my side. I'd really appreciate any help
    that anybody can offer. Thanks.

  2. Typically, yes. LAN is local area network (home/office etc) and WAN is
    wide area network, and this is most often these days used to mean your
    internet connection to your isp.

    Does it work at all?

    If yes, then maybe it is a problem with your link to the outside world
    - not enough upstream bandwidth or a bottleneck at at router/firewall.
