okay, what is the correct syntax to use for the host:header please?

It's late at night here, I'm off to bed, will change the order in the
morning and do a restart :)   let you know how I go there.

Well, I am unable to "dial out" through the router and come back in to see
either the addresses or the 150.x.x.x IP  -  and was told
by both the D-Link tech who helped me with port redirection and the dyndns
instructions that that would be so because you can't ever see your own
server from the "outside". Which sounded odd to me, but seems to be the case.

The message I get in IE5.5 is "Internet Explorer was unable to link to the
Web page you requested. The page might be temporarily unavailable."
