Plain text please...

I think your router is misconfigured (so not a problem with apache or dynu). I tried your
address from the public internet and got your router's config screen. The way it is supposed
to work (I think) is this:

- user on the web, types in
- browser requests IP address from
- sends browser your IP address (
- browser makes HTTP request to that IP
- router receives request on its external interface and routes it to its internal interface,
changing the destination IP to that of your server (eg,
- your server receives the request, gets the page and sends it back
- router routes it to the browser

What's happening in your case is that the router is responding with its config screen on your
external IP address ( instead of routing it to the internal server. So it's a
router config issue...

What happens if you hit your router's internal IP from inside your network (ie,
Do you get the config screen?

Subject: [users@httpd] Apache and dynu

    I am new to using apache. I have been told by people that in order to run a webserver
from my computer I would need apache.  I also need a dns client, and I was directed toward
dynu, since its free.  I am having a terrible time setting these two up together to work.
 Does anyone know how to configure apache to use dynu, or does anyone know another free DNS
client type like dynu and how to configure it.  
When I tried to configure apache to work with dynu, I type in my address (
and at home I get my routers homepage, and here at work outside my network, I get a could
not be found error. 
I have forwarded tcp port 80 through the router, but I am still not able to make it work.
I am using windows 2000 sp4 behind a belkin wireless g router.
Any help would be appreciated.
