ok, firstly i would like to thank all the people that helped point me in the right direction as far as programs and info go. and secondly i hope this post isnt regarded as spamming.

ok, i finally got a webpage up using my ISP's webspace but using a redirect option at http://no-ip.com and pointing it to my webspace.

i want you peoples to run it through a primary beta test if you wouldnt mind.

goto, http://netunlimited.no-ip.com which should re-direct you to my isp webspace. if it doesnt please report it here and goto http://home.iprimus.com.au/trust01011981/index.htm

this site is very basic and has zero of anything fancy. there are a few bugs that i am aware of, for example, if you are on a different page other than index.htm then refresh the page, it take you back to the index.htm so if anyone has any answers to any problems you find. post them here or send them to the email specified. i really do urge you to report bugs.


PS - i also used abyss web server to create a server on my own box so that a couple of my local friends who dont have a hotmail account and cant use msn or messenger, im still trying to setup a java client on that now so we can talk. if anyone has any ideas on how to do that, it would be helpful.


<edit> note that if you use the redirect option (http://netunlimited.no-ip.com) then when you refresh a page it will go back to the index. this is because the re-direct is set to direct it to http://home.iprimus.com.au/trust01011981/ if you use the real address then if you refresh it stays on the same page. the answer to this problem is that i need to have http://home.iprimus.com.au/trust01011981/[somethig here to mean current page] if you get what i mean. if anyone knows how to fix this bug, please tell me </edit>
