Dear PLANET ![/size]

my name is Amadeus,[/size]

We are starting a self funded animal rescue center, [/size]
We have purchased out own servers, and are pretty tech savy.[/size]

We have run across something we can not figure out.[/size]

Here is our Set up.[/size]

HARDWARE.[/size]
1. 2u Server.[/size]
2. Lynksys E8400 router x 2 [/size]
/ 1 Router is bridged.[/size]
3. 1Gigabit online speed.[/size]

SOFTWARE.[/size]
1. WAMP SERVER / INSTALLED. / VIRTUAL HOST / INSTALLED AND ACTIVE.[/size]

2. WORD PRESS INSTALLED IN LOCAL HOST / ACTIVE[/size]

3. WORD PRESS SITE CREATED. / SAVED AND PUBLISHED.[/size]

4. DOMAIN NAME PURCHASED / GO DADDY.[/size]

5. POINTED THE "A" CLASS DNS TO OUR [/size]
~ROUTER / NOT WORKING[/size]
~SERVER I.P. / NOT WORKING[/size]
~VIRTUAL HOST IP / NOT WORKING[/size]

We have tried everything, [/size]

~port forwarding[/size]
~port 80[/size]
~ pretty much every tutorial in the known planet.[/size]

The conclusion we came to was, it has something to do with the router ?[/size]

because godaddy can point to the router login page, but thats it, [/size]

after we tried port forwarding, its just a error page.[/size]

The only logical guess we have left is [/size]

1. We need to set the DHCP[/size]
INFO [/size]

DHCP Server: [/size]
Enabled Disabled [/size]
Start IP Address: 192 . 168 . 1. [/size]
Maximum Number of Users: [/size]
IP Address Range: 192 . 168 . 1. 50 to 149[/size]
Client Lease Time: minutes (0 means one day)[/size]
Static DNS 1: . . . [/size]huh.gif
Static DNS 2: . . . [/size]huh.gif
Static DNS 3: . . . [/size]huh.gif
WINS: . . . [/size]

2. WE NEED TO POINT OUR VIRTUAL SERVER TO SERVER IP ?[/size]

3. Something we totally missed ?[/size]

we know how to change everything in the godaddy, DNS etc etc etc. [/size]
the issue at hand is what is the correct way of,[/size]
getting past the router, to the server, and to our local site we have in the server.[/size]

Ultimately[/size]
, we are trying to build our own sites on our own servers and get to live on the Web for everyone to join us in Animal Rescue.[/size]

This is everything we can possibly think off, [/size]
Please, Please, Please anyone out there that can tell us what we are doing wrong ?[/size]

We really need to get these servers up for the Animal Rescue Center, [/size]

All advice on, anything at all will help.[/size]

Thank you all for looking and taking the time.[/size]

Amadeus[/size]
we can provide any and all pictures requested to help solves this.[/size]

When you port forward, you need to ensure that the device at the end (in this case, your web server) has a statically assigned IP address. DHCP works by assigning addresses for a certain amount of time, and then renewing them. This causes the IP address assigned to a device to change regularly. In order to ensure that your web server is receiving traffic, you need to configure your router to statically assign the server an IP and then use that in your port forwarding.

 

If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask!
