I run a dynamic DNS at home, but it's not visible from outside. Would my config
files be of any help to you Paul?

If *you* want to make your systems externally visible, then since you have a
potentially visible domain name I imagine all you'd have to do is persuade your
ISP to propgate the DNS information that your system with the static IP is the
authoritative server for mabula.net.
