Re: IP Addresses

Hello Chris.

First, you have to register your domain IE (www.yoursite.blah)

you then have to configure DNS so yoursite.blah can be seen from the internet

you have to configue sendmail (or whatever MTA you use) to accept incoming connections for www.yoursite.blah( as well as be the smtp server for your domain.

you also have to configure apache to serve web pages for yoursite.blah

last but not least, you have to log into your ADSL router and open ports
25 & 110 for mail and port 80 for HTTP.

for example, forward port 80 requests to (your linux box)

It's not too bad to do,


great doccuments to get the basics set up.
