DynDNS IP


I just finished a clean Slackware 10.1 install and am trying to set up a web server on this machine. Because I use DHCP, I have to use DynDNS so I have a static IP address to point the domain to. However, when I have to fill in my IP address for DynDNS, I'm not sure whether I should use the IP it autodetects (my router), or my real IP. If I need my real one (not local), what command can I use to find out what it currently is?

that'll give you the real IP, you'll need to give that to DynDNS, your router (local IP) is just for an internal network. You'll also need to forward traffic coming into your router/network on the port (default should be 80) to the machine/local IP adress with your webserver on

Hi,

If I am reading you correctly, you would have to go to dyndns website and update your IP address manually everytime your ISP changes it. Why not use ddclient?

It is an automatic IP updater that works perfectly with DynDNS.
