Need help with DNS
I am a newbie on this so sorry for my ?
I set up DC (Domain Controller) in my Windows 2003 Server, and I am able to see the test page that I created in the (IIS) localy. What I want is to be able to access from the outside using the domain.com
Any help with this is really apreciated.
This is not exactly DHCP issue but I will help you anyway.
First you must insert NAT.
Firewall: NAT: Port Forward
If Proto Ext. port range NAT IP Int. port range Description
WAN TCP 80 (HTTP) [Your Win Server IP] 80 (HTTP) HTTP External
Then insert rule: Firewall: Rules (WAN)
Proto Source Port Destination Port Gateway Schedule Description
TCP * * [Your Win Server IP] 80 (HTTP) * HTTP External
This settings will open external WAN port 80 for all external connections.
Thank you for your response,
Is this using pfSense?

That is the procedure for forwarding web traffic from your WAN IP to the private IP of your web server.
The DNS part of this would be to create an A record, such as www.domain.com pointing to the public IP.
I'm obligated to mention that running a public web page on your Windows domain controller is a bad idea.
I just want to use my domain in my own server. My server would be dedicated for live streaming and video streaming thru Flash Media Server. I want to be able to use my domain for exp: rtmp://MYDOMAIN/APPLICATION/INSTANCE and give my domain to the clients in set of the IP address, I will not host a web site in my server. So what I need is instruction in how to acomplish this, in how to host my own domain in my own server.
Thank you for the feedbacks.
