I have a fixed external IP address from my ISP and am trying to put my mac mini onto it. May seem simple, but it just does not want to work. Any advice welcome. The setup is : Router Is assigned a fixed IP of 126.96.36.199 (for example) by ISP Router set to assign a fixed local IP of 192.168.1.13 to mac mini server Router set to reroute all traffic to any port to 192.168.1.13 On the serveur In Server Preferences/WEB services set to active (green light) In Server Preferences/security the WEB service is listed In System Preferences/Network, a manual IP address of 192.168.1.13 is set On Directnic (my domain registrar) Purchased domain name ABC.com (example) In Direct DNS Basic set the A record to point to 188.8.131.52 With the above, a browser call to ABC.com fails, but that to 184.108.40.206 works. This makes me think the issue is with Directnic, or the DNS on the mac mini ?? But how can I get ABC.com to work ?
