I have been trying to hook up my controller to my new Ethernet module and after reading the instructions, and creating my dns domain for dynamic router I cannot figure this thing out. Does any one have a suggestion or 2.

Thanks
Jeff

There are a couple of things you need to address on your own internet router in order to make it work from the outside world.
-make sure set a fixed IP for your connected Ethernet module
-make sure you can port forward port 80 to the ip address of your Ethernet module on your router
- see if your router can create a DMZ and put the ip address of the Ethernet module in that zone

The dynamic domain will simple point the domain to your local ip address of your router which will change regularly by your ISP.

As long as you set the above up properly on your router any web traffic to your domain will route to your internet router and then to the Ethernet module.
