    Webserver on dynamic IP

    My website is at http://gabe.mine.nu. I have a dynamic IP and I am using DynDNS.org I am thinking of buying a domain and trying to use it instead of gabe.mine.nu.

    Now i dont want ny new domain to point to gabe.mine.nu

    If this is possible what whould I have to do?

    isn't that basically the same as dyndns.org?

    Pretty much but it resolves your box to a hostname (like http://www.nwsupplies.com resolves to my personal boxen). They also allow for webhops, and diffrent records for smtp setup and other cool stuff.

    The diffrence might just be between having a blah.dyndns.org address or your own personal domain address.

    So everydns.net points your domain to your box.. So you have a dynamic ip?

    Is there anyother way to do this without using one of these tools.. Now what if I am like behind a firewall? Would the tool still work

    As long as the IP is accessable from the outside ( thus you have to configure your firewall to allow access to your web server ), this will work.

    Otherwise, NO.

    The IP send from you to the DNS update, will appear to be the external one on the firewall, since it masq your internal IP.
    Thus it will be the external accessible one displayed, eventho when connections are made on port 80 to it, the firewall sends the request to your internal IP.

    Same thing with my server, externaly it appears to be 194.182.238.22, but it's own interface has an IP of 172.16.0.122, since the firewall it is behind maps the .22 ip in it's range to an internal .122 ip for security reasons.

    Ok well I've bought the domain.... http://esclavosoy.com I might use it instead of gabe.mine.nu or maybe have both domains point to the same machine. I'm sure I will learn something with owning and messing around with this domain.

    Well, your external connection (firewall) will need to update the ip if done
    automatically and portfw to the proper internal server. One thing to keep in
    mind is that most firewalls (the ones I set up anyway) have ipspoofing
    protection on the external ip address, so you would not be able to access
    the server with the external ip address from any of the internal clients
    since they would have the external ip address with the masq'ing.
