I wanted to know how to properly setup a DDNS.
Let me explain on how I think/want this set up and how it should work. but correct me if I’m wrong. I have a subdomain that I want to forward to my home ip. home.domain.com. but not just for http connections. any connections. SSH, FTP, VNC, HTTP, etc… but the problem with most personal ISP is that its a dynamic IP address.
So, with that in mind. I started to think about how I’m going to deal with the changing IP address. And I figured that I can use my MySQL database to save the latest IP. So, I wrote a script in python to update my IP in the SQL database every hour. Problem is now… What do I do with it? I’m not sure if putting it into my database is the correct way to think about it. But, keep this in mind, I’m still very new to this web development.
Thanks for your replies,
