After a month of trying to get DDNS to work with my dynamic IP addresses (via dynDNS.org and TZO.com) I went and switched my DSL service to a static IP. All works fine now BUT I still can't get my home grown web server visible to the web. <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>
I'm using Abyss web server (small, free, easy to setup) with WinXP SP2. I disabled Windows firewall and McAfee firewall and still can't view the index.htm file I created. (Viewed it from a PC not connected to my home network of course).
Things I've tried:
1. Gave this one PC a 'fixed' address of 192.168.1.10 (instead of the one dynamically given to it by the router).
2. In Linksys router config, set up port forwarding for port 80 for the above .10 address
3. Set DMZ in router to allow .10 to be visible
What more is there to do? This is crazy I'm having this many problems. My brain (what's left of it) is fried. <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>
I can successfully ping my given static address from an external PC (one not in my network) but when I do http://n.n.n.n it gives me Page Not Found instead of the index.html page that I set up.
