Is /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.exe still called when you get a new IP assigned from DHCP ISP (Comcast for example) if your PC is behind NAT? If not, can you help me build a script that will allow me to trigger events everytime my public IP changes?

The public IP changes on your router/NAT device, not on your Linux box (which is behind the NAT device).

Also, what is this .exe file? That's windows's world.

An article told me that file gets updated everytime a new DCHP address is issued. I will just have to use CRON to update then. Thanks.
