    IP Dialup And Apache

    I've just installed Apache, configured PHP and MySQL using firepages (worked great), then installed Fictional Deamon for telnet and FTP... works fine on localhost, but I can't access it from another computer. I'm only on a dial-up connection, but I needed FTP/Telnet access to the computer at certain times from remote locations when someone else will be here to get online.

    Could you please help me? When I'm online I can access my webroot locally by using the following.
    Code:
    bullets
    63.173.38.130
    
    localhost
    127.0.0.1
    Then, of course, offline, it's just:
    Code:
    localhost
    127.0.0.1
    When I try to access the server, or telnet I get a no page found, cannot connect, blah, blah, blah...

    Could anyone help me? I really would like to be able to access my machine from a remote place!

    Thanks iin advance for the awesome help!

    I assume there's no problem with accessing it from localhost? And the IP keeps changing so you can't access it remotely.

    You need a name that redirects you to the IP address. Something like DynIP, www.dynip.com , or DNS2Go, www.dns2go.com

    So say you registered with dynip, you'll get a Dynamic DNS like exbabylon.dynip.com, and when you enter that, it'll automatically direct it to your IP address, even if it changes all the time.

    There're a dozen other services like the above, they're just some I could think of right now.
