Hello All,

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.

Hi and welcome to the Webmaster World Forums! Glad to have you post.

If you're running in Tomcat, you'll have to include the default port of :8080 after the URL.

Also, you'll need to set the default page to a page or else just putting the URL won't work.

I'm going to move you down to Apache, and hopefully someone can help you better in that forum.

Make sure your ports are forwarded on that router. If they're not, then it will not work.

Ports for web are usually 80 or 8000 if I remember correctly. (I've been dealing w. many different programs as of late, and I'm sort of mixing them all together).

first:
you are connected that way:

w2k - speedstream - internet

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.

Nth thing. Is your apache running?
