    ftp behind d-link nat and firewall


    I have a D-link router sharing my comcast internet connection, I want to set up a ftp server, and the d-link lets me rout all ftp queries to a specific ip and port on the local network, but i cannot learn my ip(the one that the whole world sees) so i can test the server from outside of the network. At first i thought that it would simply be the gateway for the router, but that changes daily(im assuming comcast uses dynamic ip addresses) any help would be apreciated.

    You stole my suggestion

    There are various automatic updaters for dyndns also that will update your dyndns.com account. I haven't found one specifically for Linux but you can either write one or download a Windows version and run it under Wine.

    Another suggestion as a quick solution is to check your IP at http://www.whatismyip.com
