So I don't have a tip or trick on how to do this, but I want someone to help me make one.

So I want to be able to host a ssh/apache server from my home, which has a semi-static IP address. It doesn't really change all that often, but they reserve the right to so it does every now and than. So this won't be such a big deal this summer as I will be able to have the computer infront of me if the IP changes. Whats going to screw me is when I am away from school.

So the question is any ideas on how to deal with a semi-static IP? My thought was having some sort of auto-scheduled task to e-mail me the IP when it reboots. Because it wont get new IP unless I do a network restart or a reboot on it. Than I could always have the IP. I don't even know if thats possible and or how I would do that.

Getting a staic IP isn't a financial option or even possible since they don't offer them where I am at and on home services. So how do you host a server on a semi-static IP address?

First, you'll probally want a free domain name. biggrin.gif

www.DynDNS.com

Add a Dynamic DNS domain.

Get something like "lest.ath.cx"

You can get a program that gets your IP and updates your domain name here: http://s90389134.onlinehome.us/ddclient/dd...ddclient.tar.gz

If that doesn't work, there are more found here: http://www.dyndns.org/services/dyndns/clients.html


Also, I'm pretty sure that when our ISP changes your IP on you, your linux machine doesn't need to restart. Atleast in my experiance it updates itself on it's own.
