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

A couple more things. I changed the IP address at DNSexit.com to the 74.87.232.73 and it just directed me to my router username and password when I went to 123ssp.com. I changed it back to the 67.52.236.117. The way it normally worked was when someone went to 123ssp.com it would take them to a login screen and they would type in the username and password in order to upload files. It would take them to the upload screen. When someone uploaded a file, it automatically went to a folder on my file server called "uploads". I would just go to that file on my file server to get those uploads. When I go to my uploads folder the path is "Newtwork-192.168.1.200-Uploads". I see this IP address in my router under the Port Forwarding for webmin, ssh, FTP and WEB. Does this help with other ideas? There has to be a way that I can find where the 67.52.236.117 is pointing and run some sort of command to check that IP address and see if that has changed but I'm not sure how since the "whatismyip.com" only directs me to my router instead of the upload screen and upload files into my file server folder like it should.

I also Went to DNSexit.com and it had the following:

Tips for the Linux script:

* To start the program automatically after reboot. You need to run command
>> chkconfig ipUpdate on ( for linux distribution including Fedora/RHEL/CentOS)
>> insserv ipUpdate ( for Suse linux)
* File "/tmp/dnsexit-ip.txt" will cache the ip address of the last successful IP update to our system. For next update, if the IP stays the same, the update request won't be sent to our server. You can simply change the IP at dnsexit-ip.txt file to force the update to DNSEXIT.
* File "/var/log/dnsexit.log" contains the update history for your IP.
****************

I see that CentOS is on my server so I used that command and it did not recognize it at all. I was in the sbin directory when I tried it.
