Cannot ping my external address

Specs: Windows 10, 8
Hi,

Please can anyone assist me?

I need to access my external network.

I have a pc and a notebook that is setup as an external test site. I have the notebook connected via a Huawei B315 and my pc is on fibre.
I have setup a hostname insourcenet.ddns.net with no-ip but I am unable to ping it at all from either my pc or my notebook. Should I be able to or does it need to resolve via port forwarding at my external notebook before I can get a ping response?
I have ccnfigured the Huawei B315 and have set up virtual server as well as DMZ and programs. I did get access to my remote pc for a short while and then nothing any more.

I have access to the internet and can ping any external server. I would think that I should be able to ping insourcenet.ddns.net without having an external pc attached.

Please can anyone assist me?

I have setup a hostname insourcenet.ddns.net with no-ip

DNS ties a hostname (ie: device) to an IP address. Without an actual device that has a valid, routable (ie: public) IP address, you won't get a response as there is nothing there to respond.

Hi Curt,

Many thanks for the response. I Have a Huawei B315 LTE router and am unable to get this device connected. I am using DNS no-ip and I get an i.p. address update on the no-ip site, so my modem is connecting and updating the site. So that's all good.

I then set up Virtual server as follows:
RDP Port 80 Lan address of my local pc that I want to connect to protocol is both and status is on.

I then set up Special Applications as follows:
RDP Status on Trigger port 3389 Protocol both

I entered my local pc i.p. into the DMZ settings

So in theory everything will work but of course without a ping response I am getting nowhere. Do you have any ideas for me?

Why is my modem not 'binding' to the no-ip dns setting? It appears as if there is no route established.


Bob

Hi Curt,

I have created a second hostname on no-ip and can ping that one even if my router if switched off.

Thanks for writing back and letting us know you got it working. Doing so may help someone else in the future who has the same router and is using the same dynamic DNS service.

Sorry I couldn't be of any real help as I'm unfamiliar with both your router and the dynamic DNS service.

To understand your setup:
Desktop connected to router/modem with a ISP using fiber?
Laptop connected to a 4G router using mobile DATA?

What exactly did you set in NO-IP (noip.com ?)??

The insourcenet.ddns.net resolves to 197.185.116.69. Is that the IP address of the 4G router?

If you DMZ the 4G router to your laptop, it should work fine to access the laptop from the desktop.
