Question Router - XP, Server RH9


2all:

This, probably, has been discussed here a million and a half times, but searching archive didn't help me.

I can only access my site by the LAN IP, and not by actual IP.

Example:
myname.com is registred for 24.44.55.66
My router is my XP box, my server is my rh9 standing beside me
if i access myname.com from LAN it won't show unless i access 192.168.0.161

:( I'm bad with words; please help me out.

That is because your dns name will be pointing to the ip address of the xp machine. You will need to forward port on xp to port 80 on the linux box.

Take a look at AnalogX portmapper

I do; if I didn't then why would it work computers out of my lan?
I think it's some security problem that i can't access my server by internet IP if the router is XP... or microsoft for that matter.

The only machine that has a public ip on the interent is your xp machine - yes? Then you can't access the linux box directly from the net. hence why you need to forward the port. If I have got it wrong it may help if you drew a network diagram.

Code:
+-----+                  +-----+
|Linux| --- connected to |XpBox| --- connected to ADSL
+-----+                  +-----+
Linux has a server http://simins.net
XpBox forwards ports 21, 22, and 80 to Linux
if from XpBox i type http://Frodo (name of my linux box) it works fine
but if i type http://simins.net i can't get there


P.S.
----
Frodo name has NOTHING to do with the book

Try using:
http://www.simins.net


If that doesn't work then put this in your hosts file and try again (where 192.168.1.1 is the ip of your server - you'll need to change this):
192.168.1.1 www.simins.net

yes, http://www.simins.net won't work because.. it's the same thing.
defining auto-redirection from simisn.net to my linux box 192.168.0.161 WILL work... but it's easier to buy an external adsl modem i'd think :-p

Anyway, thank all for the help
