3. you have another computer on your own home lan that can run apache;
The first 2 above would require that each time you go to the admin section of the registrar and change the address of the ip to which requests are sent. 3 requires that you change the ip address on the modem/router to which requests are sent.
Thanks TigerOC ... i guess i should have explained it in more detail.
I am running my apache serever on my lan laptop and i am using DYNDNS service to update my domain name with my current ip address (my ip is dyanamic) . also i am using dydndns software tool which resides in the taskbar of my xp computer (also on the lan ) which continously updates my ip address.
Now i can acheive what i want by changing the ip address in my dyndns.org account to some static ip where my server offline page resides, the moment i stop my ip address ....
My question is how do i go about doing that assuming i have a static ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx where my server offline page is ????
