  • Now you should set up a web server on your gateway box, so you can have all kinds of people from the outside sucking away your precious modem bandwidth. And you can use [] to get past your presumably dynamic dialup IP! :)

    </plug> :)

    • Or, since I work for the ISP I could just set myself up with a static IP. ;-)

      OTOH, why wouldn't I want to contribute to dyndns, they've (indirectly) contributed to me.

      OTOH, when I get satellite I'll surely have an uncontrolable dynamic IP and dyndns could help.. could I get VPN stuff working with the help of dyndns?

      • Ahh, didn't realize you were dialling up to the ISP that you work for, I suppose that changes things :)

        Getting VPN stuff working depends a lot on your VPN. The small amounts of VPN stuff I've worked with relies on having the actual IP addresses; I imagine that there's something out there that will work out with hostnames, though, in which case dyn would be able to hook you up. We just map hostnames to IP addresses, after all, we don't filter all of your traffic. I can't imagine the bandwidth that'd use - we use enough for DNS traffic alone!
