By exteranl IP address are you refering to the IP address that your machine is showing to your imediate network, or instead or you refering to what IP address you request are appearing as after you go through NAT to the internet?

If the later, then try:

www.ipchicken.com

I'm trying to set up no-ip but keep get 'can't find server.'
I did a redirect to port 80 in the dsl modem. I think it's right.
But, it still doesn't work.

I have to admit that I have not used 'no-ip' (www.no-ip.com), but I am familiar with the basic premise of what they are trying to do for you. If you do not mind I would like to ask some questions on hopes of getting a better feel for where things might be going wrong.

As I understand it no-ip has clients that run on hosts, which make an effort to reach out to the outside on a given basis so that a server that is accessible online will be updated as to the IP address for your system. Are you using the Linux client?

Second, where exactly are you getting this error message? Is this occurring as you are configuring the client? Are you seeing it via a web interface view from no-ip? If possible can you provide a cut and paste of the full error message that you are seeing?

And the final question (for now) what is your general network layout. I gather that you have a DSL modem, but is anything else sitting between you and that DSL modem (router, or wireless router, or both).

Happy Hunting!

Yes

From anothe box on my lan.
Can you try from yours... www.dlw.no-ip.org

is anything else sitting between you and that DSL modem?

Not that I'm aware of.
I can ping from 192.168.0.2, 4 and 6 to myrouter 192.168.0.1 and to each other.

OK, so on the internal side your router is the DSL modem correct?

When I attempt to get to 'www.dlw.bi-ip.org' I am routed to an IP address of 69.129.*.*

One problem with this is that the entire 69.*.*.* range is a no-mans land, with no valid IP address. With this in mind could you go to the IP Chicken site that I had mentioned earlier and tell me what the first two octets are in the IP address that it provides.

I also take it that you are running a web server on one of your boxes? When you open up your browser and then punch in the local address (192.168.0.?) for the machine running the web browser you do see the site that you expect to see, correct?

Happy Hunting!

I stand corrected 69.*.*.* is not a no-mans land...(need to get more cafine before I start posting...)

It appears that this addres is owned by TDS Telcom, so maybe this is related to you in some manner. Regardless if you could look over my other questions, I would appericate it.

The address is: www.dlw.no-ip.org not bi-ip.

http://localhost give me a page that says 'It works'.
I think that tells me that Apache is working.

No, http://192.168.0.6 give a server not found error.

Some routers have dynamic DNS support built in. Post the make/model.

You want the noip client to send the address of your external and not the internal IP address. You will need to foward port 80 if you want to access a website from the internet but it will not affect the noip client. Here are the instructions for using a router with noip:

I have the page you refered to and did that.

I have the manual from Actiontec.
On page 48 it talks about redirecting the port.
I think I've got that right.
Don't know how to check it.

I find it interesting that from inside the network, when you go to the IP address for your web server (192.168.0.6) that you did not get your Apache page.

So this tells me that your server is not responding to outside request. So we will need to correct this matter before you will be able to host a web page to the internet with no-ip.

You might want to take a look at this site (redhat.com) in a support peice that discusses configuring Apache to listen for request on port 80 from exteranal address.

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...tpdconfig.html

Thanks for the links.

In /etc/httpd/conf is httpd.conf
It says that Apache's document root is /var/www/html
In /var/www/html is index.html that reads 'It works.'
That is where http://192.168.0.6 takes me.
That suggest to me that Apache is working and that the problem is elsewhere.
/var/www/html is also where /dlw/public_html is.

OK, just to make sure that I am on the same sheet of music, from inside your LAN (perferably on a system other than the one acting as your web server), when you go to:

http://192.168.0.6

you are taken to the Apache welcome screen (or whatever you may have replaced it with), correct?
