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 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

So I assume that the ipudate program is not running.
Typically a regular users path does not include sbin. linux is different from windows such that the path environment does not include the current working directory.
So even though you were in sbin you could can not run an application unless you use the full path or the shortcut ./
