DynDNS

I am looking for some help with getting this working. 

 

I have the account setup with with the DynDNS people.  But I'm not sure where to go from there.  I'm using 2012 Premium access via web.

 

At one point I had this all set up and working fine with a static IP.  Now that I running at home, a static IP is no longer available.

 

I can access the database remotely through a web browser at another computer on the network. ...//servername/APFW/.....

 

I need mobile access though from my iPhone and laptop. ( I do use HHC also, which is fine for the phone but doesnt help with the laptop.)

 

Any help would be appreciated...

 

Chris

Re: DynDNS

Hi You will need to create a host in DynDNS which you can do via the dyndns website after you have logged on. You give the hostname a name and then use one of the domain endings that is in the dropdown and once set up you would use the domain name you have created. in the picture below I wold use http://myACT.dyndns.info/APFW/ to logon to the web site this would then forward it to your home IP. You will also need to port forward HTTP (port 80) via your router to the machine hosting ACT!. 
You will also need to keep DynDNS updated either via the Dyn Updater you can get this via http://dyn.com/support/clients/windows/ or if you router has DDNS settings it can be configured to update DynDNS when you IP has been changed via your ISP. there is also NO-IP which is an alternative to DynDNS

Re: DynDNS

That was the problem.  I had not opened port 80.  All good...THX!
