How do you check your network settings on fedora core 3 via the shell prompt?
A simple question for the noob.. I can't get my domain name to work on my home server, you see. My dns settings seem to be correct with zoneedit, my registrar and router but i want to just confirm what my server's network settings are as i am a little stuck at this point. I enter my domain at the address bar but i can't get through to the apache test page after i've started up my http daemon. I can't connect. And i don't suppose you have to leave apache on for a few days either so my dns is resolved . A little stuck. There's a 'register new name server' part to my registrar domain panel login. i feed it the ip addresses to the 2 name server's, zoneedit gave me. But theni guess these are not new name server's such as nameserver.domain
, the format requested in the error message. however the nameserver's are changed so i guess that is all that's required to do at the registrar end. And the ticket man said my name server's were changed.
Basically when i enter my domain in the address bar and key 'return' i get the 'timed-out ' error message.
'the operation timed out when attempting to contact domain
someoneelse in a webserver forum said it was likely a dns error rather than a server error but i'm not sure if it's possible to messup the netwrok settings at the server end, and if so how to check what i entered during installation(server install choice) in terms of ip numbers. I was a little unsure during install.
any feedback appreciated
(sorry, this is probably in the wrong forum, newbie forum more appropriate)
