Pls any solution to pinging My external IP adress?

November 4, 2014 at 13:07:35
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate
hello everyone! I'm using a mobile internet hospot for my internet and I'm trying to Use a remote software that requires a DNS host but I can't connect to the server..
I've tried this solutions:
1) I check my External IP address using whoer.net
2) I checked if my ISP is not blocking the port i'm listening to from the Remote client software. which I confirmed not blocked.
Still I can't connect to the server but I discovered something after several workout to see it working!
1- I discovered I can ping any other domain address like google and yahoo but I can't ping
- my External IP address
- the remote DNS address which I setup with (no-ip.com)

I've tried:
- flushing my dns and may more but still not working

Conclusion:
- I can't connect to the remote server because my computer can't ping/connect to my external and remote dns address!

I'll be happy if I can get an absolute solution to this problem i've been facing for weeks despite all my effort but no good outcome

DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.24.8.50 is a invalid dns entry. It should be removed.
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 41.203.67.134 is a invalid gateway and should be removed.

Your wan port address is neither a dns server nor a gateway.

If I do a tracert to 41.203.67.134 it ends at 197.211.48.162. Same with your .biz domain name.

Appears to be a routing problem on the internet in addition to the issues I have already pointed out.

You had to have put this invalid entries in the router or the local tcp/ip settings.

Simply undo what you did.

Got your PM. You don't have a dns server. You have a domain name. If you want to ping your wan ip you have to enable ping response on the wan interface of the router.

It is sounding like you need a friend to come help you. You know anyone familiar with logging into routers and fixing tcp/ip settings on the local workstation?

" I'm trying to Use a remote software that requires a DNS host"

You misunderstand. What you mean to say is that you want to use a remote host software by using a DOMAIN NAME [not host] that you registered with no-ip.com

Problem here, from what I can see, is you associated the wrong wan ip address with this domain name.

I believe your issue is the use of a domain name via no-ip.com. Clearly both the ip address and domain name association are wrong. Forget about using them.

Simply use the ipaddress you get when you do a whoer.net lookup. I am assuming you are setting this up so you can be elsewhere to access the blackberry network connected device(s)

You still have the issue with the invalid entries.
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.24.8.50 is a invalid dns entry. It should be removed.
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 41.203.67.134 is a invalid gateway and should be removed.

Since these are not coming from the hot spot you had to have added them in the tcp/ip properties of ipv4 and in the advanced tab.

Thanks for the consistence response and concern,
Like you stated in your response; I'm trying to use a "remote host software by using a DOMAIN NAME [not host] that you registered with no-ip.com"
I'm trying to use a remote administrative software so that I can connect to my computer in my office from my main computer.
From what you stated; I've checked for what you stated but all was set to obtain an address automatically and there is no way I can improvise an automatic configuration except I checked it to be manual which requires manual configuration.
Pls can you kindly give me manual configurations so that I can Simply undo the wrong configurations.
Thanks for you help in advance

Your computer wireless internet adapter should be set to DHCP.
Since you are using the Blackberry as router it needs the capability to forward the port you need for your "remote software" to your computer. I do not see any settings for Q5 hotspot to do this.

Try this website to find your public IP address: https://support.google.com/websearc...

If it is the same as before then most likely your mobile provider hides or blocks access to this IP address.

Thanks for the contribution. The solution I want is how I can use the remote software using a dynamic domain name I registered with no-ip and I have tried other services too. I so understand the domain names are registered with my external IP, I guess i'm having this problem because I can't connect to my external IP which I tested by ping my external ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx! pls any Idea?

I have the same problem with my smartphone set as WiFi-hotspot. I cannot ping the public address of the smartphone.

If you do not have any other internet connection, perhaps contact your mobile service provider and ask them for possibilities.
