Hi, I just bought a domain name from Netfirms.
I was wondering how I point that to my DS409? I have DDNS setup and I can access everything using that subdomain, but I would like to be able to use my new domain to access File Station, Audio Station, etc. Is that possible? If so, how would I go about doing that?
I thought that maybe I could just have the domain forward to the DDNS subdomain and enable masking, but after trying that it's not working. It's giving me an "Internal Error".
Any help? Pleaaaaase. I'm desparate.

Hey bud by now i'm sure you're questions has been answered or you have been pulling out your hair.
To use a domain name (or DNS) you need
1. A Static IP address (meaning an external IP address that doesn't change) - to get this static IP address you need to call up your ISP and ask them.... it may cost, it may be default.
2. Point the DNS to your external IP address. (that happens at the domain name end.... go to where you bought it and see at there end how to.
if you wanna know your external IP address or test your ports are forwarded correctly go to http://www.canyouseeme.org
Tell me how you get on .... or if i'm teaching you how to suck eggs.
