I set up DimDim without any issues at all. I ste up the router for NAT and then Config-ipaddress.pl and mapped my URL to my Vmware IP 220.127.116.11.
This worked great!
Last week my router failed. It is a Linksys Router on Cable. Same as I had before. Now my Vmware ID is 18.104.22.168. This is the address when I run ifconfig eth0 and its the address that shows up in teh router DHCP table. I've forarded all teh same ports as before. I've run the Config-ipaddress.pl as I did before but I can not get it to work.
Any ideas on how to fix?
Further review indicates that the router will not allow forwarding to a DHCP address. So I need to assign a static ip address and I need some help: From the Install Doc:
What should NETWORK be? Is this my Router LAN IP 192.168.1.1 or is this my WAN IP 71.25.xxx.xxx?
Whate should GATEWAY BE? Is this the "Default Gateway" as shown on the router status screen: 71.59.xxx.xxx or my Router Internet IP?
>What should NETWORK be? Is this my Router LAN IP 192.168.1.1 or is this my WAN IP 71.25.xxx.xxx?
192.168.1.0 since your IP is in the 192.168.1.x subnet and the netmask is 255.255.255.0
>Whate should GATEWAY BE?
this is internal IP of your firewall/router, 192.168.1.1
IPADDR=192.168.1.50 (or whatever you choose)
Thansk for teh Help!
I made the changes and ifconfig confirms that the changes work but I still can't get connected.
The setup file indicates that
NETWORKING_IPV6=yes, your post says "no". It doesn't work eitehr way so this is probably not my connect issue but it still needs to be correct?
I am setting this up on a old server that I use for development and playing around. I set the Domian on teh Router set up as "Charlie". I uses No-Ip because I have a dynamic address. If my NoIp URl is "ken.servehttp.com" should HOSTNAME=dimdim.localdomain be set to
One last thing. Because I already have an Apache erver using port 80 I am using 8080. This was not a problem when I set it up the first time? Is there a change to either of these files to accommodate 8080.
almost all internet connections are currently IPv4 so you likely don't need IPv6 support.
I would still leave the HOSTNAME as dimdim.locadomain, it really doesn't matter and it doesn't come into play with the problems you are having. I like setting it so the bash prompt says the hostname is dimdim.
This is what I would do for your setup:
1) run the ./configure-ipaddress.pl with these parameters:
./configure-ipaddress.pl ken.servehttp.com 8080
2) forward 8080 from your rotuer/firewall to the 192.168.1.50 IP (or whatever you used)
3) on your PCs inside your router/firewall add an entry to the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file (or /etc/hosts if unix/linux)
4) to test your dimdim by going to http://ken.servehttp.com:8080 from computers inside and outside your router/firewall.
