Set up a free DDNS server acct at www.dyndns.org
. You create a host name (i.e. bigjimmysdvr.dyndns.org) and then you add those settings onto a device on your network (DVR, some routers, computer, etc.) that has DDNS support. Then when your IP address changes, the device will update dyndns.org with the new IP address. This allows you to always access the DVR using one "static" address (bigjimmysdvr.dyndns.org) even when your ISP changes the IP address.
DYNDNS is no longer free
is it possible to set up a free update client that emails or texts the new IP address to me every time it changes ?
it might be annoying if it happens frequently , but i cant find a free DNS service that appears to be honest clean and reliable yet .
there are plenty advertising "free" or cheap but once you get in there the extras could cost $ 28 - 65 per year
i want a set and forget system
any suggestions ?
