Default Changing IP to host www, mail and etc in FreeBSSD

To All out there:

I have an PPPoE ADSL connection (Broadband service) 24 x7 and I planned to use its services even am not at home. Used its services means: I will put up a domain where www, mail, ftp and etc will be pointed to my changing/varying ip addresses.

sample:
www.mydomain.com:
Internet <==> [[DNS equivalent][GateWay] ===[LAN / www/mail/ftp/ssh]

sample:
mail.mydomain.com:
Internet <==> [[DNS equivalent][GateWay] ===[LAN / www/mail/ftp/ssh]

I know that this is possible now but I don't have an idea on how to make this work. If you have some inputs to this I am advancing my warmth thanks to you guys.

Just to inform you that I had already settled a domain for 1 year for this personal project.

Regards,
Neubie

1) Register a domain (Done, you say)
2) Get an account with Free DNS service (eg: DynDNS.org, ZoneEdit.com, No-IP, etc)
3) Set-up your domain to use No. 2 as DNS
4) Configure No. 2 to point to your dynamic IP
5) Set up your services (www, smtp, etc)
6) Set up a script, program, cron job to update your IP with No. 2 when it changes
7) Test, test, test again.

No idea how to configure step #2 to point to the dynamic IP.

You get this information from your DNS provider, such as dynds.org.


As for crontab, edit /etc/crontab -- the syntax is fairly clear. I'd paste a few of my lines but the power is out where my machine is...

@neubie: It's very confusing when you paste contents from a post you're replying to (with no tags) and then quote your reply. Most people will expect to see the reverse. I had to look at this thread a few times to figure out what was going on.

Google can point you to many tutorials on setting up a cronjob. There is also good documentation on the system -- see the manpages for crontab(5).

Sorry for mis-representing my words there.

I finally got the whole picture and now I am going to use ddclient to update dyndns.org server regarding my IP. I have now the idea of how to do the cronjob - (Thanks for people like you guys)

I have not enough time to fully complete this project. I will continue with it and hopefully I can finish the job the soonest.

Thanks to All.
Neubie
