Stealth forward does not appear to be working

    I run a website at home. My ISP will not allow traffic on port 80 so I have a stealth forward setup. I also have Dynamic DNS setup. The IP address listed on the Dynamic DNS is my IP address, however when I ping my website I receive an IP address of: 198.199.92.59. I did a reverse lookup and that resolves to webfwd2.zoneedit.com.

    Can you help me understand why my site isn't resolving correctly?

    Hi,

    Can you let us know the domain name?

    It's mcvannerconsulting.com.

    Hi,

    Checking your DNS settings on your ZoneEdit page, you have set up everything properly. Your website comes up fine when I enter mcvannerconsulting.com and www.mcvannerconsulting.com into my browser. Since you have set up URL forwarding, the ping returns the IP address of our forwarder, and not your actual IP address.

    Thank you. I was having issues with it resolving and it appears to be resolving now. I appreciate the info about the URL forwarding.
