    I would like to connect to a cisco 2511 or similiar terminal server
    from the internet. I have a dsl router that like most is patting the
    dhcp generated address.

    How can I access the terminal server at anytime (I get a dhcp address
    from the provider as well)?

    Thanks in advance !!

    Hi Albert

    If the DSL router has the option to allow you to expose a host that is
    behind the DSL you will
    need to enable that feature. This is going to make visible the terminal
    server on Internet.

    Brad is right you need the DNS record too just to have no trouble if you
    forget the IP address that you get from your provider or that address is
    changed by DHCP while you are away and can't check it.
