I seem to have come unstuck in using dyndns. For some years, I've been\nusing their free service to provide a target for my domain's MX record.\nThey used to require the address to be updated monthly (or thereabouts)\nto keep it live; all worked well. Now they've changed the rules, and\nrequire that one log into the accounts area monthly instead. Tedious,\nand if I'm away when the 5-day warning appears, that would be just too bad.\n\nI have now registered with no-ip, who don't (yet) seem to have gone this\nroute. Unfortunately, it seems my netgear router won't handle no-ip - it\noffers a choice of dyndns, and take it or leave it.\n\nI could run a no-ip client on the freebsd server I keep running 24/7,\nbut as that's only on my LAN, it doesn't know my WAN address, and I\ncan't see a reliable way for it to obtain this.\n\nThe netgear dg384g doesn't seem to have a way to act as modem only\n(which is all I really need; the fbsd box acts as router and firewall).\n\nShort of buying a modem or paying dyndns significant dosh (I'd not mind\na token amount), I seem stuck.\n\nAny thoughts please?
