Linux and networking nub need help for Slackware web server


Hi all,

I recently started learning Python and would like to host my own website with my own domain name on my machine.

I installed Tornado and I can view my web app using localhost:8080.

Question:
How do I bind/map my domain name (example.com) to my machine such that it would show my web app being hosted on port 8080.

I have tried using no-ip DUC client on Linux and what it does it give a subdomain, xxx.no-ip.biz which when i navigate to, brings me to my current ip (im using DHCP) and shows me my web app.

Cheers, and thanks in advance

What's not working then? You says that it DOES show you your web app.... but maybe you a word or two?

You can NOT make "http://xxx.no-ip.biz" reach port 8080. That would be from accessing "http://xxx.no-ip.biz:8080". by default it will go for port 80, and what you'd usually do is use a standard web server, e.g apache, or dedicated reverse proxy, e.g. nginx, to connect the incoming request on port 80 up to 8080 inside the server.

I have a router (3G router) with that does virtual server and maps external ddns address:8082 to 192.168.1.100:80

I do not want to open port 80 on my router as it could be a security risk.

Regards
Andre
