    DNS Server?

    Maybe I'm missing something, but all I see there (instead of setting up some sort of account for dns servioes) is a picture of a server. Do you perchance mean www.everydns.net ?
  3. So.. in this setup, "" is your public, outside ip address? or is "" I am 100% dns naive.. Here's my understanding, and feel free to tell me if I am wrong. Every dns server basically cascades every other dns server. It would be best, of course, if I have a static IP address to my machine at my location. Assuming I do, and this information is true.. Here is the information about my current internet connection [cable modem] info as reported to my router, all these ips are obviously given to my router by the cable modem. IP Address Subnet Mask Default Gateway DNS (of my isp) How would these numbers apply to me. Additionally.. how would I go about getting the internet to know that my domain is actually at my ip address. - I am guessing I can update my registrar to point to the name servers of mydomain.com to I'm confused .. :-)
  4. ---- Dunn'o, it just didn't work. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Do you have more than one cd rom drive in the system? With windows, I've had a similair problem, where I would boot up of the winXP cd, and for some reason, the system would try to check the OTHER drive. Pull the system down to bare minimums. - Just the optical, just one hdd [unless you've got a raid] -- You can always add other drives later. Take out any unneeded peripheral cards, as well.
  5. Ok. First off, configuration info Athlon 1ghz, (32 bit obviously) redhat 9 (2.4.28-9) using vsftpd factoids * I have successfully configued vsftpd to be publicly available on the internet. * I have configured anonymous user logins * anonymous users can download whatever they can SEE * anonymous users can create directories * anon users can enter those directories and upload files to them What they can't do is.. Delete directories (and I don't want them to be able to) Delete files in directories (and I don't want them to be able to) Browse directories they created after uploading something to them The /incoming and /pub directories can be uploaded to, and the files that are put there, are visible, but not downloadable. But if someone makes a sub-directory in /incoming .. they can cd to it, and put files. but they cannot see the files they put, and cannot download them, obviously. Reasoning, as I see it is, that the /incoming and /pub directories are -rwxrwxrwx files that are uploaded to /incoming get tagged as -rw-------- directories that are made in incoming are tagged as -rwx------- How can I get the directories made in /incoming to be tagged AUTOMATICALLY so that anonymous users can 'browse' and download files from them, and the same for the files too. I mean, I can put files there, then from the box itself (via ssh or right from it's k/b and mouse) can set the right flags.. but I want the chmod to happen automatically I want anything 'pushed' into there to be -rwxr-xr-x (I assume.. this means I'll be able to have an "anonymous ftp site") with full functionality so.. how do i set this up (chmod 755 ?) to happen on the fly
