About NAT and DNS behind firewall

ok, your question is how do you get external "users" to be able to view the web and/or FTP sites that you have published. First is, you have to have a static IP address assigned to you by your ISP. Second, if you wish external uses to be able to "find" your site by typing in a name, you must obtain a FQDN [fully qualified domain name]. Once you have a FQDN, you can notify your ISP to use a host header with the static IP address they assign you. That way, instead of typing http://4.4.10.127:80 to reach your web site, external users type in http://www.<your domain name>. A Domain Name server is used for name resolution to IP addresses. It has a foward lookup zone and a reverse lookup zone that is created to resolve IP address to names on thenetwork when there is a query. As far as setting up a Domain Name Server, I suggest doing network planning before hand.
