The Uniform Server Community

from DNS to my local homeserver?


Recommended Posts


I must ask question, I don't understand how it is function.

I started my UniformServer, just to work, and I checked my installed websites, in www folder and it works, in localhost.

then I would like to visit my local server from internet, in fact my website located in my home/local/uniform server.

I registered myself at FreeDNS and DynDNS.

for example, at FreeDNS I created subdomain: primer.ingorelist.com

primer.ignorelist.com A

I chose: A, and included my IP address.

I checked also wildcard, TTL was for subscribers only.

later I type in my firefox http://primer.ignorelist.com

and I get:

Firefox can't find the server at primer.ignorelist.com.


the same case with DynDNS.


well, I must say that I installed UniformServer at my USB and I try to use it at university, it means IP address can be from main computer, I think my default server is itsrv.kvl.dk and address:

but I never see at any free DNS possiblity to type there, always I got chance just to type


so, I suppose if I use local computer, among many in network, I can't come from internet into my local server/website if I didn't type anywhere my local address in faculty network:


can someone explain me how to come into my website, which is located in my USB in local computer in network in faculty, from internet.

if it is important, I think faculty use static IP address.


http://www.hcidata.info/host2ip.cgi gave me next information:

IP Address :

Host Name : campusgate.life.ku.dk


and look up dns gave me this:

Look up DNS records for a given host or domain.

I tried with changing of my F:\UniServer\usr\local\apache2\conf\httpd.conf :

NameVirtualHost primer.ignorelist.com

<VirtualHost *>

ServerName primer.ignorelist.com:80

DocumentRoot F:/UniServer/www/realestate/index.php



but without result. http://primer.ingorelist.com still don't show my website in local server.

I am sure crowd of you succeeded to do it, so why everyone wait on administrator of forum to answer? write several sentences, it is not sooo hard.

I would be most surprised if you were allowed to do this on your University network.

For security your internal University network will not be accessible from the Internet.


You can allow other users on the internal network access to your server if you provide them either with the name of the PC you are running on or its IP address on the same internal network.


I assume all students are allowed Internet access hence an alternative is to run your server as a home web server.


Check out this page for details:


Although it was written for 3.5 problems and issues remain the same.


All the best

thanx for advice, I will try it.

problem is now that I get always redirect.html when I try to start my server, so it doesn't function anymore. If I type localhost, I get:


and after 1 second it is forwarding to http://localhost/index.php

it means firefox can't connect to the server.

I don't know why I get this redirect page, possibly I changed something but I don't know what.

Yep! That was not unexpected; after all it is a secured University network.


At least you have discovered why I like UniServer! Well if you break it, delete and start again.


A the best
