I've decided (and set-up) a server at home and am going to be dabbling in doing a bit of hosting and having remote access to my network at home.
So I've got a server setup and running Windows Server 2008, and IIS and everything - this accessible from the current IP on the outside world (using a seperate connection to test this), and I can verify that it is accessible. The ports are all forwarded, yaddah yah...
Now, I've only got a dyamic IP address, and I don't have an option of changing this - I wish I could go static but do not have a choice.
I've messed around with this heaps previously, and have yet again, set up an account with dyndns.org so that I can access the server all the time from a single address. This being owenw.doesntexist.org - my problem is, that even though this is being updated (as reported by the DYNDNS client on the server) and the fact that I can definately view the server via the current IP on the outside world, the address will not work, even though it responds to pings.
So my question is, what is going on here? Why can I not access it when using the auto-updated dydns domain, but can when I use the IP?
Any help is much, much appreciated, and I hope I've been detailed enough :)
