Resolving server to dynamic IP

I have a computer running SuSE 11.1 on my home network. Is it possible to make the Apache server running on this machine accessible remotely at all ? I tried using the dyndns services to achieve this but that just goes to my Sky router configuration screen rather than the web server.

port forwarding?

Have you configured the port forwarding on the router? Usually u should map you local ip address to a port on the public IP.

lets say u got 3 PCs:

pc1 IP
pc2 IP .4/24
pc3 IP .5/24

if u are hosting your website on the pc2 then in the port forwarding you have to setup the port 80 --|>

for dynamic dns, try dyndns (is free) if your router support dynamic updates of the ip u wont have problems at all.
otherwise just install a small client software (dyndns updater).

Ahh yes. I sort of had that right only I have installed Plesk Control Panel and the admin interface runs on https which is a different port. Once I forwarded https requests it works fine.

Only problem now is that Plesk seems to have broken Yast2 which now doesn't start up
