Apache webserver on a DSL Dynamic IP system?


What are the services I would need to get my apache webserver to allow internet users to connect to the website? Of course it is going to be little harder since I have a dynamic IP, what if I ran my own DNS? Im kinda shooting inthe dark here. Any help is appreciated.

I prefer using one of the dynamic DNS providers, such as www.noip.com www.dyndns.org or www.changeip.org (.com? )
However you can register with whomever you'd like and then use www.zoneedit.com to work with the dynamic IP (there's instructions in their help section).

You could also do it with your own DNS, but that's a lot of work for those just experimenting. You'd certainly learn a lot though

Cool

Just a quick note, if youre using a linksys router you have to use dyndns.org or something else you have to pay for (its so cruel...)

I beg to differ

I use a Linksys BEFSR41 and I've used:
no-ip.com
And am currently using:
www.zoneedit.com
Both work great with my Linksys, in fact, I recently installed Linksysmon and it works with ez-ipupdate which is capable of using MANY different dynamic IP services.

How? On the 54g it alows you to only do 2... Do you just disable DDNS and then find someone who provides DNS?

To do 2 what? Dynamics? First off let me explain how my setup is:
I've got my DSL modem plugged into the Router, the router feeds 2 static Private IP's to my 2 boxes. From there it port forwards requests to my server.

The WAN IP rarely changes, but when it does, I have linksysmon monitoring it, and when it changes, ez-ipupdate sends the info to my zoneedit.com account updating to the new WAN IP. Zoneedit makes the changes almost instantly so there is virtually no delay in service when accessing my server via it's domain name.

Found the main problem... Linksysmon works with the BEF's not WRG's...
