I have been trying to get my dynamic dns website to work. I have a name of example.no-ip.com that I can ping but can't view from internet explorer. I have a Speedstream 2604 router. I am using W2k pro and have dsl from verizon. I also have Apache and Tomcat running.
Friends can ping but not gain web access. They get a "Page cant be displayed" message, which i think is better than 404, but not by much.
Any help, ideas, clues on where to start? I am pretty technical on the network side but i cant figure out the problem.

first question: does this speedstream act as a NAT router? maybe your w2k has "internal" IP address like 192.168.X.X? (run ipconfig /all to check this) In that case you have to do "port forwarding" -> go to the speedstream setup.
second thing: do you have any firewall between you and the internet? you have to allow incoming connections to port 80 and 8080 (tomcat)
third thing: does the name example.no-ip.com resolve to your external IP address? (run nslookup) Your friends should also check this.
