I have crawled the web and cant seem to find the answers to my specific questions.
So I have a mac mini running lion, I installed lion server on it and have registered a domain name. I have given my server a static IP, that with the 192.168.blah.
What I now need to know is how to setup the DNS to connect to my server.
Lion server allows the server name to be set e.g. server.mydomain.com
I am unsure how to connect all these parts. I have an account with name.com and I see the option to add a dns records. The needed fields to set this up are
Type: e.g. A
What am I supposed to do here, what is the response field? Also, if my server has a locally assigned static IP, what points to my real address?
If I port forward on my router, how would I ensure that only the server gets the traffic forwarded, and keep my other computers hidden to outsiders?
Sorry for all the questions, but I think they are all related and straight forward for someone who already knows.
