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

Dhcp setup on a Cisco 2851 router


Let's look at how to configure basic DHCP on an IOS-based router. For this example, we'll start off with the default configuration on a Cisco 2611 router running IOS 12.2. (The configuration should be the same—or very similar—on all IOS-based routers).
To begin, connect the router's Ethernet port to a switch, and connect the switch to a laptop, which will serve as the DHCP client.
To configure Cisco IOS DHCP, follow these steps, which include sample commands:
1.Configure an IP address on the router's Ethernet port, and bring up the interface. (On an existing router, you would have already done this.)
Router(config)# interface ethernet0/0
Router(config-if)#ip address 1.1.1.1 255.0.0.0
Router(config-if)# no shutdown2.Create a DHCP IP address pool for the IP addresses you want to use.
Router(config)# ip dhcp pool mypool3.Specify the network and subnet for the addresses you want to use from the pool.
Router(dhcp-config)# network 1.1.1.0 /8 4.Specify the DNS domain name for the clients.
Router(dhcp-config)#domain-name mydomain.com5.Specify the primary and secondary DNS servers.
Router(dhcp-config)#dns-server 1.1.1.10 1.1.1.116.Specify the default router (i.e., default gateway).
Router(dhcp-config)#default-router 1.1.1.17.Specify the lease duration for the addresses you're using from the pool.
Router(dhcp-config)#lease 78.Exit Pool Configuration Mode.
Router(dhcp-config)#exit

I hope this is helpfull for you.

Thanks

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.

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.

My website on my network open the netopia router page


You need to somehow setup the internal DNS to route all requests for the specific domain name, to your internal website.

Or, setup the netopia to allow loopback connections.

If you have a 2003 Server OS, chances are that the server is handling DNS requests, at least internally.

This tutorial has a good example of how to create domains internally:
http://www.simongibson.com/intranet/dns2003/

Just a couple of tidbits when using this approach:
You will essentially be controlling the DNS for the domain internally anyways. Meaning, any subdomains, mail exchangers etc., for the domain will have to be configured as well.

Good Luck.

First packet in connection is not a SYN packet:


Verizon blocks port 80 traffic to residential customers. If you want to host a website, they expect you to pay for the business service and a static IP.

I am monkeying around with my DNS records on goDaddy to see if I can get http traffic to go to port 8080 instead of port 80. So far, I have not had any success.

I did find no-ip.com, which, for $25/year, will "host" a simple redirect for you, so that when people type in http://yourdomain.com, it actually gets redirected to http://yourdomain.com:8080. That :8080 does show up in the address bar, but I think that's okay. Especially for $25/year.

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.
