I'm kind of lost

i'm not even sure if i can post this here but i am trying to register at zombtracker.the-zomb.com and for some reason i am unable to receive their email. the only other option in the FAQ on the website is to contact them on their IRC, but i have never used an IRC before and I find them horribly confusing. does anyone have any suggestions??

zombtracker does not conform to the RFC standard for reverse DNS.

Try another e-mail address.

I'm not sure what you're talking about.. but i tried another email and it wouldn't let me because my IP already had registered account, or something.

Re: I'm kind of lost

You will have to register from a different computer with a gmail account.

Don't worry about the technical side of why you didn't get the welcome e-mail.

Feeling brave?

If you have access to another email account to register from and you have
dynamic IP addressing from your provider, you can reset your IP address
and try again. When doing this, you can screw up any port forwarding that
is IP dependant (as well as any other connections specific to your existing
IP).

If you still want to try this, open a command prompt and enter the following:

ipconfig /release

Then press enter. This will release your exisitng IP address.

Next run the following:

ipconfig /renew

Then press enter. This will obtain a (hopefully) new IP address. You may
have to wait a few minutes inbetween commands to avoid being given the
same address back.

To see all the available commands, run ipconfig /?

Re: I'm kind of lost

Did you come out from the primordial ooze yesterday?

gmail is a web based e-mail system offered by google.com

I can send you an invite if you reply with your e-mail address.

Re: I'm kind of lost

Actually, port forwarding is not platform independant. You use the same ports as PC users. You have access to your router the same as the rest of us.

www.portforward.com

Re: I'm kind of lost

i know, i spent a good 8 hours the day before last trying to figure that out.. and eventually succeeded, since as you can see, i'm no longer firewalled.

but there's no "command prompt" type program on mac. i never realized how useful that can be until i had to search forever to find my internal IP.

thanks for the google mail invite. Unfortunately I am now going to get my wisdom teeth out.. on the bright side, I'll have plenty of time to download torrents in the next few days

thanks for all your help!

Yes there is. Go to Utilities > Terminal. You can do stuff from there. However, whenever I drop/reset my IP, I do it from the router which I access at 192.168.1.1

Re: I'm kind of lost

Running ipconfig on my machine (behind a router) only allows the commands
Code:
waitall, getifaddr, ifcount, getoption, getpacket, set
and refuses anything with a "/" which seems logical to me, isn't that part of a path not a command ?

All the release/renew help I've ever seen says that the analogous procedure on a Mac is something along these lines
Quote:
# Macintosh OS X (through 10.2.8): Click on the Network Control Panel from within System Preferences. Making sure that the TCP/IP tab is selected, enter any number into the DHCP Client ID box. Press the "Apply Now" button. That will force it to search for a new IP address.
# Macintosh OS X (10.3 Panther and later): Click on the Network Control Panel from within System Preferences. Click the "Renew My DHCP Lease" button, and your computer will release and renew its IP address immediately.
I have no idea whether you wouldn't just get back the same IP your ISP had assigned you but if you can, this seems to be a sensible way.

No. In a DOS command prompt, the forward slash denotes a switch, the
backslash is the path designator.
