    What domain are you using to connect to your computer?


    Because www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org does not exist in DNS. You can check with the dig command:

    Code:
    dig www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 28676
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0

    DNS doesn't direct you to a port, it simply tells you the IP address, nothing more, nothing less.
    If you want to connect to port 8081 in your browser, you must use http://www.example.com:8081.

    www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org still doesn't exist (btw, you can check that yourself with the dig command):

    Code:
    dig www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.2.1 <<>> www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org
    ;; global options:  printcmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NXDOMAIN, id: 45479
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 0
    
    ;; QUESTION SECTION:
    ;www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org.    IN      A
    
    ;; AUTHORITY SECTION:

    I think you must register www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org at no-ip first.

    That is what i have done i have setup a DNS called monitorwaves.no-ip.org at no-ip.com. Is there any why i could pay to get the domain monitorwaves.com and it redirects the port?

    At dyndns.com, you can register .com domain names and let them point a dynamic IP address.

    i will take a look at that site. O yea i should have a dynamic IP but my ip has not changed in about a mouth so i dont know what that is all about, its just wrong that i have about 3MB Download and 738 Upload or some were near that yet they block port 80 :(

    You have registered monitorwaves.no-ip.org, but not www.monitorwaves.no-ip.org. That's a difference!
