Unhappy Unable to view domain within network


This has been a problem for some time now. I am unable to view my domain in a web browser on any of my network computers except for my server. I ssh the X11 to my Kubuntu box when I need to make a post or edit using a browser (i.e. ssh -X username@10.1.10.XXX). Let me expand on that...

I can see and use hand coded php pages, Dotclear blogging CMS, and Jibberbook guestbook with no problems. However, I use Wordpress as a CMS and all that I get when I type in my domain, internal ip (10.1.10.XXX), or my static ip is the title attribute; if I wait long enough I get the text of my page without CSS.

Any thoughts on a solution to this problem?

I have 4 computers on my network; Ubuntu Server 8.04, Kubuntu 9.04, and 2 Vista boxes.

To be honest I am not understanding what your issue is. Are you running a web server and you are not able to get to it with in the network ? If so are you running a firewall on the sever ? Most distributions run a firewall that blocks external IP'S from connecting on port 80. What is your server distribution?

Configuration

mbostwick - yes, I operate a web server from home. I have been using Ubuntu Server 8.04 since its release. My firewall has been disabled completely with no success. I am fairly certain that the firewall is not the problem. I am able to view some of my subdirectories just fine. For instance, I can make edit and view my micro-blog (uses MySQL and AJAX), a previous Dotclear install, and hand coded pages just fine using my 10.1.10.XXX internal ip. However, Wordpress installations, Concrete5, and others that require that you use a domain name in the initial config are a no go. I can see 'Buckycomputing.net' in the title bar of the browser, but no content.

My physical connection to the internet consists of a comcast modem/router combo (they make me use this because of my business account) to a 10 port switch.

Have you checked your logs for apache if thats what your running ? cat /var/log/apache2/error_log... for you it may be cat /var/log/httpd/error_log. Also what is the source show on the web browser?

Logs

Well, since my WP pages do not show up, I cannot get browser source code. I was playing around with WP and placed a '/' in the settings for the URL. All of my pages showed up. However, since it is interpreted as a relative URL for the home page, my 'Home' button always showed up as whatever sub pages I was visiting.

In summary, something does not allow me to visit my domain name within my network. Thinking about a reverse proxy install...

If you are not able to get to the domain name of your wetbsite from your network can you give the output of theses commands: traceroute domain.com; ping domain.com; whois domain.com
