I have RoadRunner, and the server is a Windows 2000 Server located in my basement. I am unsure as to whether or not I have have a static IP address or not. I'm faily sure that I have dynamic IP, but I will check on that.
Your best bet in this cause is to use dynamic dns or if your provider operates like mine does (my IP very rarely changes) then you can just use URL forwarding (frame vice redirect) to your IP. Please tell me you have a firewall? I run a high port on my Linksys FW and then have that redirected to the same port in apache on my server at the house. If none of this makes sense to you then I suggest you get yourself a cheap hosting package. $18 a year and you can get set-up real easy.
I don't use any hardware firewalls, but I have a software firewall on my other 2 computers (the server itself has no firewall).
The thing is, I want to host myself. I have nameservers, and I have space and a domain and everything, I just need to know how to tie the nameservers from the domain into the server so I can put the space on the web.
Would I set up the URL forwarding on the domain software, or would that be something on Windows I could configure?
With RoadRunner, it only changes when you reset the modem or when the company resets it (which is not very often).
I don't reset it, and it hasn't changed since last year, when I got it upgraded. I figure if this stays like this, I can keep the current IP address. And if it changes (which won't be very often) then I will just update the domain.
Are you running IIS? or Apache? If you are running IIS and you don't have a HW FW then you are just asking for trouble. Is it web server started and serving up pages on port 80? If so you may want to change the ports because Road Runner will probably smack you if you are running ports 25 or 80.
Like I asked earlier. Need more info. What does the configuration of your network look like now? You said you have nameservers. What records are being used? A? Where are the nameservers at?
