Okay, I don't know really anything about Linux but my old tech person, who I can't seem to find, set us up with Linux on our server. I have a FTP site that I was told is ran by Apache on our server. I have an account at DNSExit for the address 123ssp.com. My customers started complaining that they can't get to my FTP site. I also can't connect remotely to my PC at work now. In the past this has been an issue with an IP address changing according to my old tech. I have some notes to see if the Apache service is running and it is. I am presuming it is again an IP address issue but I don't know where to start. I checked my IP address on the server and it starts with a 192 number. The IP address in my DNSExit account shows a completely different number starting with a 67. I know this is due to the fact that I have a Linksys router but have no idea how to find the actual IP address [not the router 192 number] on the server. Does this sound like something someone can help direct me in a quick fashion?

Thank you for your help

By the way I have checked my router and I have it configured to forward port 80 to the IP address of the webserver [the 192 number]. When my tech person left I made screen prints of all my router pages so I know nothing has changed in any of those settings. The only thing I changed on the router was the RDC IP address to match my PC at work so I can hopefully remotely log in when I get home tonight. Not sure if this is what will do it but I'm giving it a shot. Any help is greatly appreciated. Remember, consider me 'directionally challenged' so the more detailed of where to find the things I need and how to get to them on your responses the better [i.e. go to Applications - System Tools .... etc...]. Thanks everyone.
