Home web server hosting

I am trying to set up a web server on my Mac so that a third party, for whom I am developing a web site, can look in from time to time to monitor progress. Speed is not really an issue here, and there will only ever be one visitor to the site at any one time.
Apache is up and running and the inside IP is fixed by setting IPv4 to 'Using DHCP with manual address'.
I have a fixed IP -- namely 22.214.171.124 which resolves to 'afco.demon.co.uk'. Broadband internet connections work as they should.
The wireless LAN here also functions properly.
What I cannot get to work is an external (ie another computer on the internet) connection to the Apache server. I have tried the following:
a) Enquired of my ISP (demon.net) if it is permitted -- answer yes it is.
b) Set the Thomson 'SpeedTouch' modem/router NAPT to 'Inside 192.168.254.10:80' and 'Outside 83.104 56.91:80' (The inside IP finds the Apache test page from http://192.168.254.10)
c) I have set up a 'dyndns' as 'thatchedbarn.dyndns.org'with the DynDNS Updater daemon running.
Despite all these things an external calls from the internet to either 'http://126.96.36.199' or 'http://thatchedbarn.dyndns.org' fail.
I would be grateful if anyone can give me advice as to how to get this working.
