Can't configure router for Domain name and DNS

I recently started a home web server and want to add a domain name for it. I registered a name at www.dynDNS.com but got completely lost when trying to configure my Buffalo Airstation. Can anyone talk a complete idiot through this step by step?

Dns= domain naming service or something alike...
you don't have normally to anything to your router other than allowing incoming traffic to port 80...once you do that, you should be all set..frrom your computer at home if you type your domain name, your pc actually goes to the internet clowd and accesses you new domain name based on the info gathered by dyndns...then comes back to the ip that your ISP assigned you and hits your webserver...

A couple things to consider;
keep an eye on the ip assigned to you by the ISP..if it changes by DHCP your webserver won't be seen by the outside..

on your side of the home network, assign a static ip address, don't use dhcp as well to avoid the same problem on the pc that you have the webserver. your router should allow you to allow traffic on port 80 to your webserver computer, which has the static IP...
if it does not, buy another one

What is the primary DNS and secondary DNS?


There are two basic types of DNS - primary DNS and secondary DNS, which are generally applied to each newly registered domain. They are name server computers where the record of your domain name is stored. The information on both servers is identical. The two DNS values are usually configured by your ISPor hosting provider and given to you as a very important part of your domain registration order details.

In general, domain names can work with only one name server - the primary DNS. However, practice has shown that a domain name needs to have at least two name servers assigned in order to be available at any time. In case there is a problem with the primary name server, the secondary name server will be able to answer the online request for a particular domain. This back-up requirement has turned into an accepted Internet standard that prevents domain names from going offline.

Make additional DNS


Yes, all Windows Servers have the option to install DNS.

Set up a second Windows server and configure it to be a secondary server for your DNS domains on you current server.

Add the second DNS server's IP address to the secondary DNS field to your DHCP scope options and to all computers with static IP configuration so they will use it when your primary DNS is unavailable.

Don't underestimate Window's built-in Help and Support. It will help you install DNS and configure it.

Good luck.

Webserver inaccessible from lan


This is default behaviour of port forwarding on ADSL routers.
You need to create a local DNS entry in your machine, which will resolve the domain to the LAN IP of the web server.

DNS Name resolution Between private & Public network.


You do not need to configure ISP's PTR records. Instead define their DNS addresses as forwarders in the properties of DNS server under forwarders tab and flush DNS cache.

First timer installing a Server network


Well i'm just going to start where i would start. First off, how do your machines on the network get their IP? DHCP?

Is the first listed DNS server the AD server? 192.168.1.1?

Also make sure your using case sensitive domain information when your trying to connect. It is rare but i have had that be my trouble.

I have remote software available and would love to help you fix this hands on if possible. I live for network problems ;)

Why can't I access my ISP's resources, such as their mail and news servers on my RO318?


If the servers have simple names like 'mail' or 'news', the problem may be that the ISP's domain suffix is not being added to these names before DNS lookup. Add your ISP's domain suffix as Domain Name in the RO318's System menu. In addition, the ISP may be looking for a particular host name for your account, in which case you should enter the host name as the System Name in the RO318's System menu. Example: Consider the following account with the ISP "earthlink.net". 1. Host Name: C-223344-A 2. Domain Name: www.earthlink.net Mail Server mail Although the ISP lists the name of their mail server as 'mail', the fully expanded name is actually: mail.earthlink.net If the ISP automatically provides the domain suffix to your router, the router will append the domain suffix to DNS requests. If not, you can try one of these methods: 1. In each application (such as mail client or news reader), list the fully expanded server name, 2. Manually configure DNS parameters in the network settings of each of your PCs, and enter the domain suffix manually.

Update DDNS automatically


Dynamic DNS (Domain Name Service) is a method of keeping a domain name linked to a changing (dynamic) IP address. With most Cable and DSL connections, you are assigned a dynamic IP address and that address is used only for the duration of that specific connection. To properly configure the DDNS feature follow the steps below: Step 1 Log into the web based configuration by typing in the IP address of the router (default:192.168.0.1) in your web browser. The username is admin (all lowercase) and the password is blank (nothing). Step 2 Click on the Tools tab and then click Misc. If you have the DI-614+ with firmware 2.30, click on Tools > Parental Control. Step 3 Enter the required information under Dynamic DNS: Server Address: Enter the IP Address or domain name of your DDNS server (IE members.dyndns.org). Host Name: Enter the Domain name that you registered with your DDNS service provider, (IE mydomain.dyndns.org). Username Password Step 4 Click Apply and then Continue to save your changes.
