Nu-Bee: Thanks for your help. I can see what you use linux questions forums?????!?

Trey: is s site that tells you your current public IP. As mine is dynamic, I have no domain name set up yet. I just run, and then test it from an external machine using that IP.

The "ifconfig" command in a terminal as root will give you your public IP when you are online.
There are free services that will let you have a stable name for your dynamic IP. is one, there are others.
