It seems that I might be a bit out-of-track now.

In order to solve the problem, let me list out what I've done and going to do
so that picture would be clearer for identifying the problem.
1st : I created 2 Name Servers via registrar's DNS interface for
provide "Managed DNS" services for free.
I just striaght the way created the ns1/2.gwoman.com with given fixed-
IPs and list them as Primary & Secodary name servers. The WhoIs
checkup reflects the nameservers & corresponding IPs. The registrar's
interface DO NOT have "A" records or CName or MX facilities)
Pri : ns1.gwoman.com - 184.108.40.206
Sec: ns2.gwoman.com - 220.127.116.11
(both same, with given Fixed IP. is it Correct ? )
BTW are your ns1-ns6.hostmu.com sharing same fixed IP ? How
many IP did you have that time??
"I register my domains with DirectI. They also offer
DNS". First, I registered a domain that I use for technical issues only,
not for web sites or emails (hostmu.com). For that domain I bought
"Managed DNS" and created the A records ns1 - ns6.hostmu.com. "
You said "They offer Managed DNS
..." but then "For that domain I
"Manage DNS". .... Since they have offered the "Managed
DNS" Why did you still need to "Buy" Managed DNS
?? Do I still
need to "buy" "Managed DNS" from my registrar again? or is there
anythings else that I should have but haven't requested from
registrar? Is there anything that I need to find out from them?
2nd : I configured local PCs network(29 PCs with XP, one FC4 as sever that
I'm setting and stuck at) as:
Rounter IP : 192.168.101.1
All PC's IPs : 192.168.101.2+onward, all with 192.168.101.1 as default
3rd : Configure FC4's NIC
a. under "Statically set IP address" I set:
Fixed IP : 18.104.22.168
Mask : 255.255.255.0
D.Gateway : 192.168.101.1
b. under "DNS", I set:
Hostname : gwoman.com
Primary DNS : 22.214.171.124 (used ISP's DNS)
c. under "Hosts", I set
126.96.36.199 - www.gwoman.com
188.8.131.52 - gwoman.com
4th. Make sure the Apache is up and the trial page(index.html) appear as
Althought all these have been done but the problem still remain the same, that's:
Under the FC4 PC's FireFox URL, when I type "localhost"
or "www.gwowam.com" or "gwoman.com" or "184.108.40.206" the trial
index.html appear as expected. However,
I can't see expected index.html trial page at other PC(other than the
FC4 server's PC). The error message is "Can't find the server...".
Above 4 steps is the "Pattern" I repeat several times but fialed. Kindly advise
which areas was the cause & what shall I do to get them right.
Thanks for your time.
I've domain under Yahoo which haven't been used. I notice that their
Interface provides "A" , MX, CNAME records, which seem to be quite advance. If current domain proved to be so haaaaard to set up, do you think
use domain under yahoo would be help. As I need to get a webserver up fast.
