  • DDNS in the Cisco IOS

    Did you know that you can configure DDNS in the Cisco IOS?

    So, what the heck does that mean?

    That means that you can get an IP address on your router through DHCP from your Internet Service Provider. Then, you can have your router register that IP address with a dynamic DNS provider to match up to a DNS name that you selected. For example, I could register, or whatver. Then have your router do a static NAT to your personal internal web server behind your router.

    Why do this? So you don't have to pay for a static IP address each month! Or, perhaps, you cannot get a static IP from your ISP at all.
