[code:1] I have split this topic from where it originally was in the security / firewalls forum under the 'Reverse trojans' thread as I feel its more relevant here. Reference the old thread for the earlier discussion.

hey guys,
1)i set up a website on my machine...and used www.no-ip.com
to get a domain....
i have also set up a passwrd n user....
i can access the site..the site prompts me for a passwrd n everything...but when i asked my friends to visit it...they are gettinn an error msg,...n not prompted for the passwrd n user name....

2)also i realise that no-ip gives an email domain as well...but i kept readin the links...and cant find a link to apply for a free domain...

Make sure that you're running the no-ip DUC client that automatically updates your current IP address with the DNS name you chose. Otherwise your friends won't be able to resolve it.

They also provide you with an MX record for email, which you can then point to your SMTP server if you have one. This is more complicated.. you'll have to configure the SMTP server and make sure that machine is always online for you to recieve mail.

Also please make sure you turn off relaying on the SMTP server if you set it up. We wouldn't want your machine to become a spam gateway.

Hi

There are some dynamic dns services which I like.

1. freedns.afraid.org

2. www.dyndns.org

I am using freedns from afraid.org, but consider changing to dyndns.org becuase of some issues, not at all related to freedns from afraid.org. freedns from afraid.org is always a good choice.

ping the hostname and see if it resolves to the right IP, if it doesnt then you did something wrong there.

Then try accessing the site via the IP rather than the DNS name... if it still doesnt come up, theres something wrong at the network level.

Then try and access it as localhost or 127.0.0.1 if it still doesnt open there there's something wrong with your webserver and not the connectivity.

I'll split this topic later as its moving off the original subject.
