Any help pls


local IP’s can not be seen from the outside 192.168 is a local ip you have to have your roughter point a outside Ip to this local IP

and how can i do this? can be done inside my bind? pls tell me how!


not sure if I get this right ?

if your server internal IP address is and you have it connected to a router connected to the internet. you need to use Dynamic DNS to get a domain to point to your router and also set up your router to connect port 80 to

is your external IP address ?

the solution to your problem is actually much simpler.
In order to find a domain on the internet you first have to register this domain.
Server Data
Domain Status: Never Registered Before

So how about you buy this domain at let’s say and point it to your server first?

thanks…just now i understude how it work and the ways of the internet, i thought that i can make my debi dns server… i still have some questions!!!

my bind is settled like:

include "/etc/bind/named.conf.options";

// prime the server with knowledge of the root servers
zone "." {
type hint;
file "/etc/bind/db.root";

// be authoritative for the localhost forward and reverse zones, and for
// broadcast zones as per RFC 1912

zone "localhost" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.local";

zone "" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.127";

zone "" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.0";

zone "" {
type master;
file "/etc/bind/db.255";

// zone "com" { type delegation-only; };
// zone "net" { type delegation-only; };

// From the release notes:
// Because many of our users are uncomfortable receiving undelegated answers
// from root or top level domains, other than a few for whom that behaviour
// has been trusted and expected for quite some length of time, we have now
// introduced the "root-delegations-only" feature which applies delegation-only
// logic to all top level domains, and to the root domain. An exception list
// should be specified, including "MUSEUM" and "DE", and any other top level
// domains from whom undelegated responses are expected and trusted.
// root-delegation-only exclude { "DE"; "MUSEUM"; };

include "/etc/bind/named.conf.local";

and the

/etc/bind/named.conf.local :
zone "" { type delegation-only; }; zone "" { type delegation-only; }; zone "" { type master; file "/etc/bind/"; allow-transfer {; localnets; }; }; zone "" { type delegation-only; };
