Installing a web server on the rPI is easy:
$ sudo groupadd www-data
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install apache2
The web server comes up and you can attach to the rPI by TCP/IP from any computer on the LAN. If I wanted to open a port in my firewall, anyone in the world could get to it (BUT this would be a security risk).
You can not edit the default page with
$ sudo nano /var/www/index.html
