Hello folks,

Well, I am officially on the internet at my new address thanks to DYNDNS.org.

My address is RtC Homepage

I installed this on my laptop and I would like to have someone help me to make sure that I've done everything in the right way. Also, I would like to know about security.

Anyone?

Thanks,

RtC

I'm not sure if this is intended or not, but chemist.homeunix.com resolves to 192.168.1.100 (a private IP) which means no one can reach your site....

behind a router?
filter port 80 (http) on your router for web access and point it to your IP (internally 192.168.1.XXX)

start up your web server (if it's OSX client, then it's just controlled by the system panel, or if you like UNIX, bring on the command line in /etc/httpd

bring up your web brower and point it on to: http://www.dnsupdate.org/
download the app, then create your account at dyndns.org for your web site.

install the app, patch the kernel, giver a good old reboot for good luck.

load up the app and create your account in the app window. If you are behind a firewall or router (by the sounds of the other posts, sounds like you are) use the (behind firewall option) in the ethernet settings option

wait anywhere between 24-72 hours for all the DNS servers across this great earth to flush their cache and then watch as people begin to resolve your IP to DNS name


The fun never stops.
any more questions, drop me a line
