LXer: DynDNS and ddclient: access your Linux from anywhere

Published at LXer:

Accessing your home computer (Iíll call it server on this article) from a remote location (that Iíll call client) outside the local network, can be very interesting, for example, listening to streaming music played by MPD, managing downloads in the bittorrent client Transmission through its web interface, controlling the machine via SSH Ö However, before accessing your server remotely, you must know the ďaddressĒ or IP (Internet Protocol address), but generally at home they are provided dynamically, through the Internet Service Provider, so itís not so easy to know the IP of your home server.We will see how to automatically update the DNS name on a domain name server (DynDNS) with the current IP address of the server thanks to ddclient.
