I have never used port forwarding before.
I have signed up for a free host name with no-ip.com. I don't know whether the actual name exposes me, but let's say it is 'abc.ddns.net'.

I have downloaded and set up their DUC piece of software and have 3 green ticks.
In Unotelly in the DynDNS Update section I have added my host name i.e. abc.ddns.net.

However, I have not set up port forwarding on the router.

On the Router I entered:
Mapping Name: Unotelly

Then used 'Add port mapping application' and scrolled to bottom to 'Add port application'

I entered:
Name: Unotelly
External Port: 80 ~ 80 (is 80 the correct port?)
Internal Port: 80
Protocol: TCP/UDP
and saved.

Now I enter:
Application: Unotelly
Internal Host: ??? I thought I needed to add my routers IP address i.e. 192.168.1.1 but it wants a 'hex' addresses.

Should the hex address be my PC. or my router?

I start DUC running as soon as my PC starts and also as a Service.

If I set up the Router correctly, is that the end of the setup?

If my PC is not running then I assume Unotelly cannot get my (external dynamic ) IP address.
But if the PC is logged out, can Unotelly get my IP adress?

Once everthing is setup on the Router, how do I know that Unotelly is getting my IP address?

You don't have to port forward anything (and please don't forward port 80), just need to apply their DNS servers.

Thank you.

So I just keep running the noip.com DUC software on my PC?

Can you (or anyone) briefly explain what the interaction is between Unotelly, no-ip.com and my dynamic IP address (to make it all work)?

No-ip simply puts a DNS name e.g alisam.no-ip.org to your dynamic IP so you don't have to keep manually entering your IP into Unotelly each time it changes.

btw you will never be able to port forward port 80 on a Vodafone HG659 while it's running Vodafone firmware
