    Connect WAMP Server/Virtual Host/local Word Press to GoDaddy.

    Dear PLANET !

    my name is Amadeus,

    We are starting a self funded animal rescue center,
    We have purchased out own servers, and are pretty tech savy.

    We have run across something we can not figure out.

    Here is our Set up.

    HARDWARE.
    1. 2u Server.
    2. Lynksys E8400 router x 2
    / 1 Router is bridged.
    3. 1Gigabit online speed.

    SOFTWARE.
    1. WAMP SERVER / INSTALLED. / VIRTUAL HOST / INSTALLED AND ACTIVE.

    2. WORD PRESS INSTALLED IN LOCAL HOST / ACTIVE

    3. WORD PRESS SITE CREATED. / SAVED AND PUBLISHED.

    4. DOMAIN NAME PURCHASED / GO DADDY.

    5. POINTED THE "A" CLASS DNS TO OUR
    ~ROUTER / NOT WORKING
    ~SERVER I.P. / NOT WORKING
    ~VIRTUAL HOST IP / NOT WORKING

    We have tried everything,

    ~port forwarding
    ~port 80
    ~ pretty much every tutorial in the known planet.

    The conclusion we came to was, it has something to do with the router ?

    because godaddy can point to the router login page, but thats it,

    after we tried port forwarding, its just a error page.

    The only logical guess we have left is

    1. We need to set the DHCP
    INFO

    DHCP Server:
    Enabled Disabled
    Start IP Address: 192 . 168 . 1.
    Maximum Number of Users:
    IP Address Range: 192 . 168 . 1. 50 to 149
    Client Lease Time: minutes (0 means one day)
    Static DNS 1: . . . ???
    Static DNS 2: . . . ???
    Static DNS 3: . . . ???
    WINS: . . .

    2. WE NEED TO POINT OUR VIRTUAL SERVER TO SERVER IP ?

    3. Something we totally missed ?

    we know how to change everything in the godaddy, DNS etc etc etc.
    the issue at hand is what is the correct way of,
    getting past the router, to the server, and to our local site we have in the server.

    Ultimately
    , we are trying to build our own sites on our own servers and get to live on the Web for everyone to join us in Animal Rescue.

    This is everything we can possibly think off,
    Please, Please, Please anyone out there that can tell us what we are doing wrong ?

    We really need to get these servers up for the Animal Rescue Center,

    All advice on, anything at all will help.

    Thank you all for looking and taking the time.

    Amadeus
    we can provide any and all pictures requested to help solves this.

    you need a STATIC IP address from your ISP before running a server successfully on your internet connection. You currently have a dynamic IP address which will change very frequently, anything from every hour or 2 to possibly every week or month.

    You can set up dyndns or similar to overcome that but a static ISP allocated IP is really the only efficient way

    I know my pfSense and Ubiquiti Networks routers have a setting called "Hairpin NAT", "NAT loopback" or "NAT reflection". With it enabled, if I accessed the external IP from within the network it'd redirect me to the router sign on page; but if I did it from a device outside the network (ie a mobile phone on 3G data) the port-forwarding would connect me to the server inside the network rather than the router login page.

    It's entirely possible that if you're trying to do this from a residential connection, they you're behind "Carrier Grade NAT"; so it wouldn't be possible to forward ports to be accessible by the public IP address.
