Question DNS server question


Hi actually i started this questions in another thread ,but i wasn,t clear about what i need to know


I have monkeyserver on dsl and want to host a simple 2-3 page website and experiment a bit
i have a dynamic DNS that updates my IP adress
i followed some steps on forwarding port 80 on my router

but my www.xxxx.dyndns.org adress doesn't exist when i google it

i think i need to have a static IP acoording to some tutorial i read (i'm gonna do it later and try again)

so if i delete the monkey.html file , mine should be seen without having to redirect URL's and such things right?

my total setup may not be correct either and need some insight on that, in the meanwhile i'll reading and try figuring out the issues ,i know i'm almost there

Fireserver Web Site

Some things to consider and check:

Does Monkeyserver allow port 80 packets (aka HTTP) to reach your router? Some ISPs do not allow this. If Monkeyserver does not, then you'll have to work out a deal with them to change their mind.

Unless you keep your dynamic host and domain name for a long time, Google will not have enough time to even know it exists.

I believe the web site address you should use is the hostname of the Internet-connected device (your router or a PC) that has been given the dynamic DNS hostname. That is all anyone in the Internet will see. The router should be configured such that when it receives port 80 packets sent to that address, then forward them on to your internal web server. I am no expert on exactly how to do this.

A static IP address would make things simpler. But if the dynamic DNS is working, a static IP should not be required.

Having or deleting an HTML file will not affect the access to a web server. What it will affect is what is seen once the web server is reached.

You probably are very close to success. Keep at it, and good luck.

Ok,

but how can i check/verify wether packets on port 80 reach my router

well it seems that i need a static IP with this router
damn small linux gives more (to me) options for configuring my network card but haven't been able to set it up correctly
cause i have no acces to the internet

ip adress here i type in a ip 192.xxxxxxxx
subnetmask default
Broadcast adress for eth0 ? not sure
Default gateway default
Nameserver what here , right now it's 10.0.0.1

i played around but wasn't able to connect to the internet
i'll go and check to set it up right


i tried once to access my pc with another using the ip adress and ended up on the admin page of my isp
but then i did not forwarded port 80 yet

anyway thanx , exiting , in the future i'm thinking on the paying to host a website , but for now i want to learn some of the details
about it

Unhappy security issue ?

HI, why am i not able to reach my site neither using the dyndns nor the ip


i'm trying (and use this pc) to reach my homeserver to check it out.

the pc was hijacked a few days ago , i helped getting it to work, properly, but am also aware that pc "hijackers" will not stop .because you cleaned the pc and am able to use it.


my question is , seeing that i'm now unable to reach my server/site , is it being used by the hijacker/hacker

server is down ,ran a rkhunter -c and going to read all the log files, samhain has a "critical" change which i have to check on too

my iptables rules are simple , but only the ports i use 80 and 433 are recently reachable or set in that manner,

i heard ppl using servers to launch a "cyber-attack", i don't know so much about this area, so



i'll run a hijackthis on that xp->pc and some other stuff,

but in the meanwhile i'm concerned that my server is maybe being used against me (not literally,but in a way)


hope somene has a reasonable SOLUTION/SUGGESTION/ADVICE

firedancer

i'm thinking on registering a domain at LQ , is this alrite for my DNS homeserver

BUmp , can't acces my site/server with firefox from the other pc neither,


can elaborate on this pls, it's getting frustrated , if i have a dynamic ip at least , i should be able to acces my dsl/router or reach at least ,


is it the other pc , did some things to the host file (it's an xp box) , now installed to see wether it's IE on this pc or a problem with reaching me through the network

how can i solve this problem , anyone
is my isp blocking acces to my homeserver for instance , or so , how can i find it out before calling ,

please , growing impatient, can't go ahead studying now , man ,


any help is appreciated

OK, i only can't reach my webserver via the other pc that has another internet connection ofcourse


so i'll do all the extra cleanups on the xp pc and then see if i can go on mine using it ,


i ask my girl in holland to check wether she can acces it , then i know the browser is still hijacked on the other pc and that it has nothing to do with my debian server,

busy with an experimental kubuntu httpd webserver , also want to try this out , but the other pc is where i do all of that,

pls , tell me it's what i think , i feel like throwing away the pc's , naaah not really, just a solution ,

i hope it's the xp pc only and that it has nothing to do with my old debian server, at least it does a job , helping me learn

well, can't reach my site using ubuntu on the cd, but it's not returning the dnserror


so , it's either my router , the isp or the person who compromised the pc a few days ago,
