There are a couple of things you need to do.  First, you have to setup
your internet router that now has the static IP to do PORT Forwarding. 
Basically, you will forward PORT 80 of the outside side of the router
(which is your static IP address side) to PORT 80 of your k12ltsp server
(which is  Before I go any further, do all your computers
access the internet from one connection (FYI, I have 2 DSL lines on 2
routers...ugh)?  I am going to assume for the moment that you answer yes
to my previous question, and that should be all you need to get your
k12ltsp server responding to web requests.  From home, try typing your
static IP http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and see what happens.  If there are
problems, we could port forward SSH (port 22) to the k12ltsp server and
see if you can remotely log in from home.  If that works, it probably is
an apache configuration issue (have you tweaked the config any, it looks
like you haven't, but I can't be sure).  

Next, you have to get a DNS record added to your "redeemer.gld.edu.au"
domain for "intranet" and have it point to your new static IP.

Hope this helps!
