Then you need to setup port forwarding in your router. Setup your system with a static IP address in network manager. You will then port forward port 80 TCP to the IP address you set on the PC on port 80 and it will be visible from the outside world. You will then need to register your IP to the domain name.

You can find your IP with: http://www.ipchicken.com

i have a 3com router
can any one tell me how can i config it

It varys wildly from model to modem. It is also not an ubuntu question as your system is configured and working. You will have to RTFM.

Can you help with this problem?
