Most routers support port forwarding. If yours does that, then you can
forward all the tcp traffic on ports 80 (http) and 443 (https) to the
machine you want to act as the webserver.
Or should I connect the Web server directly to cable modem, and use Linux Masquerading to offer
Internet access to the other PC?
I prefer the former option where possible, since it provides an
additional layer of security.
