    I tried this yesterday, but was making up names and IP for the sake of
    trying to remain slightly anon. But it wasn't working. So here is my
    dilema...


    Running a webserver on my linux box, and connected to the internet via
    a comcast cable modem. Whenever I browse to a webpage hosted on my
    server, the ip address is shown instead of the http://www.czepp.net/


    Here is some info on my setup...
    czepp.net is registered with godaddy.com
    Server: ns.inflow.pa.bo.comcast.net
    Address: 68.87.167.196

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: czepp.net
    Address: 64.202.167.129
    Aliases: www.czepp.net



    My cable modem is hooked into a Linksys router. Checking the info on
    the router shows that the I address assigned to it from the cable modem
    is

    LAN
    IP: 192.168.2.1
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    DHCP: disabled

    WAN
    IP: 69.141.168.42
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.248.0
    Default Gateway: 69.171.168.1
    DNS: 68.87.64.196
    68.87.66.196



    The IP address of my linux box is
    192.168.2.102 and I have all port 80 traffic being forwarded to that
    IP.

    On godaddy.com, i have
    traffic for czepp.net to be forwarded to http://69.141.168.42/


    And now for some detailed info about the linux box..
    Mandrake 10.1
    Apache 2.0.48

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    192.168.2.102 www.czepp.net www

    search czepp.net
    nameserver 68.87.64.196
    nameserver 68.87.66.196

    hosts: files nisplus nis dns




    and from httpd.conf
    --------------

    Listen 80

    ServerName www.czepp.net

    UseCanonicalName On

    HostnameLookups Off

    All the VirtualHost stuff is commented out


    This is all the info that i could think to post that might be relative.
    Anyone have any idea on how i can this to work?? Thanks again

    So, godaddy is hosting your domain
    Right here you tell godaddy that you want traffic for czepp.net
    forwarded to a different IP address (69.141.168.42)
    You need a DNS A record for czepp.net pointing at 69.141.168.42. If your
    cable internet is DHCP, like most consumer cable internet, you will need
    some provision for updating this A record when your IP number changes.

    I have a similar situation, but I have a registered domain that is
    updated through DynDns.org. Their DNS servers point directly to my IP
    address. Maybe godaddy has someway to do this?
