A number of provides supply free dynamic DNS services whereby a home
user connecting through an ISP with dynamic IP addresses (the IP
address changes on each new connection) can assocaite a symbolic name
with the IP address. This is like controlling a moving target, and
works very well.
You can find your current IP address with:
lynx -dump http://checkip.dyndns.org \
| sed -n '/Current/s/.*: \([0-9]*\.[0-9]*\.[0-9]*\.[0-9]*\)/\1/p'
