Hello...

I'm running IIS server on XP professional.  I recently signed up with DynDNS.org and downloaded a copy of DirectUpdate (DU).  

DU is configured to connect to "localhost" and it works fine.  But when I enter the DynDNS hostname I have, I go directly into my router's admin page!!  

What do I need to do in order to get the DynDNS hostname point to my IIS websites?  I'm guessing I need to add an entry for DU in my router and have it forwarded to the IIS server, right?  I'm just not sure how to do that...I'm a novice at this :)

I'm not sure what ports to use in order to get forwarding to work right.  Is there anything else I need to do?

thanks for your help!
