    I am trying to set up apache on my home computer, that has a dynamic ip address. I was wondering if anyone knows of any good free dns providers that work with linux and apache, and if there are any guides on how to setup apache on linux. I installed it and cant seem to get it to display warcraftvoodoo.servegame.org:8080 to anyone outside of my house. I am completely lost and confused and about to give up on linux I have been tying for over a month now.

    i use dnydns.org
    for my free DNS name

    there is an client i think for linux
    i know there is one for windows
    if u got an windows desktop pc
    just run it on that pc
    it just sends out the WAN IP to them
    so if it changes
    its updates


    check the firewall settings on the OS
    to see if its blocking ports
    and add port 8080 or 8000
    or what port number range your using
    and if you are using an router
    make sure you got the NAT setup right
    linux box IP : port set in the router

    simple way to check is at canyouseeme.org
    put in the port you want to test and its check it

    if its the only one DNS address you got
    it should be fine

    if you running more

    than you have to add
    NameVirtualHost *
    to the apache.conf or httpd.conf file
