setting up ftp with a dynamic IP address
First of all, I have been mucking around in Linux for about a year, but not until the last 4 or 5 months have I totally given up on winblows. I also work in linux at work, so I know all the basics. However there is one thing that I cannot figure out:
I am trying to setup an FTP to share some of my files with friends. This is NOT a corporate or even public FTP. I only want the people that I say to be able to access it. I have been playing around with pure-ftpd and I think this is going to work for me. The issue I have though, is that I am on a home DSL connection. The IP that I am broadcasting changes every couple of days. Is there a way that I can setup some kind of virtual IP or something? Maybe make up an IP and just have it forwarded to my computer? I know I can do this if I register a domain and have them do it, but is this the only way? Also if I do decide to do this what is a good site to go to?
