First of all I'll suggest you to check if your router (if you got one) support dynamic dns, if so will show a list of supported services (dyndns is very common).

Create an account with the service you choose and setup your router.

Setting up the router have many pros but the most important one is that updates will be done as soon your external ip changes even if your PCs are switched off.

my 2 cents

ddns and dynamic ip, static not available

so my router supports 2 ddns services both are pay type
i know of a free ddns service i found where i create a subdomain
like with afraid is a domain name they own
and run a ddns updater app in one of my comps

this is " "
im just haveing some trouble setting it up

i was hopeing there was a sneekey little app that would trick there
dynamic ip into thinking there was a internal computer transmitting data constantly maybe like a outgoing endless email "one byte" transmitted at
the max keepalive for the connection "as not to gobble up my bandwith" and ..........thats a :roll: theroy based on the :roll: assumption that the dynamic ip won't change during a transmit session from my end

is my asumption about outgoing traffic keeping the ip from changing during a transmit session correct ?

anything like that out there ?

you don't have a choice because the ip expires (my isp sets them to a month) i still use noip just to make sure i can still get to my server.
