  • 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 dyndns.org [dyndns.org] 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?

      • It probably depends upon the VPN whether you need dyndns at all.

        The VPN software I use for my work has my laptop connect to the server at work - the server just replies to the calling address, so it doesn't matter whether the laptop has a fixed IP address or not. I have to enter a code from a secureID card to convince it that it is me rather than some imposter pretending to be me, so it doesn't need to also insist in a fixed IP address. I've used it over dial-up PPP on the road as well as from inside my home network (which actually does use dyndns - I've been very pleased with them).
