I was thinking about getting something like http://www.no-ip.com/services/managed_dns/free_dynamic_dns.html .... so I could have a hostname to give to people when and if I try to remotely support them using a reverse connection VNC Does anyone else use that?
I find it more reliable to run the client on the router/firewall. Use the service your router supports ( see below )
I use zoneedit.com for managing my static IP's DNS ( about a dozen domains ), butI have not figured out yet how I would make my machine report into the DNS service above. Is it easy to do?
zoneedit also does dynamic IP, and are free for the 1st 5 domains.For instance my router/firewall is Endian ( see my Plug talk) and that has clients for
almost all the dynamic IP accounts included in the appliance.
I had experimented with running a server on my machine here to learn how to do it. I had to change firewall settings on my Router, on top of port mapping to make it work (Filter Internet NAT Redirection).
It's good practice to not put internal stuff ( like your main computer with shared files ) on the same server as your webserver. Even better is to put the webserver in the DMZ on a separate LAN segment.Of course with virtulization, you can have multiple servers all running on the
same physical box.

Your external IP will probably remain stable for as long as you use the same cable modem (it keys off the MAC address of the cable modem). I host several sites, but got a business class account. This leaves me unfiltered access. I'm pretty sure most home accounts filter extensively, especially port 21. Port 80 may be open, but many people switch to port 8080.
I highly recommend a business class account if your hosting. I use speakeasy.net business instead of Verizon but at some point may upgrade to FIOS business.
Please consider avoiding 192.168.1.X . That gets you into all sorts of trouble when you want to route through a VPN tunnel to another location that is also running 192.168.1.X Reprogram your router to aOn Saturday 07 August 2010 4:00:31 pm Ron Kaye Jr wrote:any of you folks host a web site at home? i will purchase RonaldKaye.com this weekend i have verizon dsl, which appears to nat my 192.168.1 network to a valid verizon address. do i setup some kind of dynamic dns?
network that is more likely unique.Pick another network like 192.168.177.X or 10.x.x.x ( but not 10.0.0.x ) and use that.
