Any thoughts what could cause this ?

Thanks !

Mike,

http://www.dnsexit.com provides a free DNS service. I frequently use this service to connect to my server at home. They also have a dynamic DNS client that you can install that will update your IP address on dnsexit.com for you when/if your IP changes.

If you don't need that, it's still a cool service to make sure you don't have some configuration problem.

Simply set the name servers as specified on their website and set your domain up after you start an account.

I think this should slove your problem.

Good luck!
Darin
