dyndns help

Postby filer » Sun Jan 22, 2012 1:21 am

Hello, I've been using this program on and off for about a month. At one point, I got the dyndns working. But now i can't seem to make it work. i think it's a router problem, but I don't know how to fix it or what to look for.

I have a Linksys 802.11n router. I have a dyndns address for my ip that is working fine. But I can't get the dyndns address to connect to that address, and at one point I had it working. The ports are forwarded to the best of my knowledge, but I'm not very confident that I did it properly.

If I use the "localhost" address, wing ftp web access (https) works fine. But if I use the dyndns address, it doesn't work. What's even more strange is that if I use the ip numer directly, it still doesn't work, not even the local router ip. So that's why I think it's a router problem.

But I also don't know if the wing ftp dyndns settings are good. In the passive ftp tab in the settings, I've clicked the dyndns option, and in the address I've put in the dyndns address like:
mydomain.dyndns.org

But I don't know if it should be:
http://mydomain.dyndns.org
https://mydomain.dyndns.org
or simply just "mydomain"

I also don't know what the forwarded ports range should be or if it should have the automatic port forwarding checked. Please help troubleshoot this, thank you.

Forget it. It was a router port forwarding issue. I guess at one point it was forwarded properly, but when I checked it wasn't there anymore. Strange. But it's working now.
