configuring Linkysys router and IIS to work with DirectUpdate and DynDNS
Posted on 2004-04-08
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!
