dynamic IP address


Does anyone know of (or wish to describe) a simple way to publish my ip address on a remote server?

the onyl solution i've found isto use ftp in a shell script, but that wouldn't be possible when using passwords would it?

I'd guess the easiest way may be to email the server and use a procmail script to create a new html page at teh remote end. but i've very little experience of procmail, and it look svery nasty...

any ideas?

Check www.ods.org !

They have come up with a way for dynamic DNS! You just install a small client and set up a account and you will get some domain like yourdomain.daemon.sh where you will always be reachable as long as your client has signed up with the current ip. -> add it to the ip-up script.

Have fun!

www.dyndns.org or dyndns.com does the same thing and they have more programs to update your ip address. I think you can just go to their website and get some of those programs and use it with any website.

If you use DynDNS' service and setup a 'static' host then the TTL (Time To Live) of the DNS record is 4 hours, so if you're IP changes there is the potential for it to disappear for upto that long for some people once your update their DNS record to tell them your new IP...

cheers
