Re: Could be routing problem?



Info you asked for:

1. Here is /etc/hosts:
# Do not remove the following line, or various programs
# that require network functionality will fail.
127.0.0.1	localhost.localdomain	localhost
#
# Local stuff
#
192.168.1.1	mark.neidorff.com	ja.neidorff.com
192.168.1.16	ns1.neidorff.com
192.168.1.18	mail.neidorff.com
192.168.1.3	dan.neidorff.com	dan
192.168.1.2	kids.neidorff.com	kids
192.168.1.4	merri.neidorff.com	merri
192.168.1.5	bob.neidorff.com	bob
192.168.1.6	cybergenie.neidorff.com	cybergenie	CyberGenie
172.16.154.1	vmware

2. Mail to me goes to mark neidorff com and works (except for the "too 
many hops" problem)

#host neidorff.com
neidorff.com has address 64.36.121.2

#host neidorff.com 198.6.1.1
Using domain server:
Name: 198.6.1.1
Address: 198.6.1.1#53
Aliases: 

neidorff.com has address 64.36.121.2

3. neidorff.com is hosted at dyndns.org
from the dyndns.org screen:
host             TTL       TYPE       DATA
neidorff.com     60          A         64.36.121.2
www.neidorff.com 43200     CNAME       neidorff.com
neidorff.com     60         MX         10 neidorff.com
