Subject RE: configuration issue
Date Mon, 26 May 2003 03:56:18 GMT
I have a DNS service called DYNU.  I use that for remote desktop and FTP
and stuff like that.  I know the service works fine b/c I have used it
MANY times, but when I try to put in http://wdwr.dynu.com (which is my
domain for dynu), it doesn't work.  This is all I had to do to get it
work for IIS, but tomcat is obviously different.  Again, any help would
be greatly appreciated!!

Hmm, for public win2k machine, I didn't do anything, just pointed the 
domain name to the ip. Typing the http://www.[domain name].com worked 
for me.
