dyndns.org not found

Postby leke » Sun Jul 03, 2011 8:07 am

I didn't post this in help because I'm not sure if it's Linux related or not -- I thought you might have some ideas about what it could be.

My friend has a one of those media servers at home and has registered it with dyndns.org
He says he can access it with the web browser at hisname.dyndns.org on his side, but when I enter it, I get server not found. What makes it more puzzling, is I can access the media server's web client when I enter its IP address.

Anyone know why this could be?

Log into dyndns, check when the ip was last updated and if the ip is correct. If it is correct and updated recently then it is a problem your end. If the ip is wrong then there is a problem his end and his dns server has probably cached the old ip or local ip, or something like that
For certain you have to be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was
