are just running a personal service, that might be good enough. But if

you want an IP that you can really count on never changing, I know at

least some cable co's offer business class service with a fixed IP and

with explicit permission to run servers, handle your own email etc. As

Ace offered me for I think $25 a month a specially programmed router that you attach to your internet connection and it makes a vpn connection to their house where they assign you a static ip.
I didn't want to pay the $25, and also, all your traffic in and out now routes through them, via the best FIOS/cablevision route. It's not going to make things faster, but you do get a static ip.
Then there's the rules you're breaking with fios/cv about not running stuff at your house, you're still doing it over their service even if you're bouncing everything off ace.

Verizon, on the other hand, is notorious for gratuitously changing
your IP address. I've heard reports of it happening for no good reason

sometimes as often as every eight hours.

DSL or FIOS? I've had pretty good luck. I've had the same fios IP for months now.

Does vi still wrap lines at the screen width? Sigh. :-)

Dunno about 'old' vi, but vim has both wrap and nowrap modes available.

Why don't you just use and be done with it? That way you can

just use the domain name you pick and it figures out what the IP is.
Works from inside your network too.

Questionable reliability, you get what you pay for.
I've used (before they went away) dyndns, no-ip and a few others, and except for no-ip, they've all had multi-hour sometimes multi-day outages, so if you actually RELY on their dns you get screwed occasionally.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print] works great for forward DNS resolution (A/CNAME records),

but can't help you, at all, with reverse DNS resolution (PTR records)

or RBLs that have your IP listed in a block list.

not to mention that it doesn't solve the problem of your isp blocking ports 80 and 25.

It's finally happened.. after years of construction... The L train

has gone automatic.

I thought aside from signalling, the problem was being able to supply power to a lot of trains in a small area.

The problem was getting rid of the engineers without getting killed by the transit workers union. In the end they came up with the lovely solution of keeping the engineers on the trains, but they won't actually be *operating* the trains.

This is another example of "progress."

Jesus people. Use to VNC from work, serve out your porn collection, web interface to download stuff from newsgroups while you're out, setup a game server for the weekend, as a dev server - you don't use DDNS for enterprise solutions. If you want that, then pay the enterprise prices and buck up for the service to your house or pay for some rackspace. Otherwise, expect your shit to go down/break/be blocked.

Blocks on port 80 can be overcome with port redirection. More and more mail servers are using port 587 for mail these days anyway; there is also tunneling you could do from a proxy, etc. Again, if you want a static IP, go pay for one.

I wasn't aware eclipse was available for the terminal.

It Is Actually That Amazing.

How can blocks on port 80 be overcome with port redirection?
I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just always trying to add to my arsenal of ways of getting around firewalls?
At work I can't web out to anything except port 80, and at home I can't listen on port 80 so it's impossible for me to hit my webserver from work. You know a way around this?

[#] Thu Feb 26 2009 21:32:33 EST from rod @ Uncensored

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

I'm sure there are other ways. My ISP doesn't block 80, so I've only heard second hand.

Wouldn't it be easier to serve you web on another port (open, but non-standard) and proxy a VPS or something to that port?
You can get a VPS for $7 a month from here:
I have 2 or 3 of the $10 ones. Uptime is ~96%, but the value is great. Beats trying to damn the man just to hit your web sites from work.

Also, can't you just SSH tunnel on port 80? Then you can do whatever you want.

Ditto that. I have a web server, WebCit, and Citadel running at home. I don't really like the idea of using something kind of hackish like to keep my URLs working, so I pay the extra money for a static IP.

This said, I would *really* love to start getting into IPv6. I wish we'd just leap into that.

Paying extra for static IPs is not something your average joe blow consumer is going to do - that usually something an ENTERPRISE or BUSINESS would do. Using dyndns was suggested to serve out porn, game servers on the weekends, etc - not to run servers you expect to have 100% uptime. Which part of that was confusing?

I dunno... I'm not either an ENTERPRISE or BUSINESS, but then, I accept that I'm not the usual case.

However, I could kind of imagine a statistically-important number of users in my position... technicians, geeks, or just folks who work from home who want a static IP for the technical reasons that I have for wanting one.

Of course, IPv6 would do much to solve this kind of problem.

The other disadvantage to using dyndns is speed.  My upload speed is everly restricted.  To access my server at home from work is effectivly uploading from my home computer to work.  doesn't work out so well for file transfer and the like.  Pity, I would like to be able to access my music collection from anywhere.  Right now I have most options turned off on my citadel to limit bandwidth usage.  Besides, technically Comcast could cut me off for even running a server from my home.


BTW, my cit is:


Try not to break anything if you visit.
