I have a Linux Box who has its IP address assigned via PPPoE.
I need to access the machine when I am out of my office.
How can I know the dinamicly assigned IP address to start a SSH session?

How about automatically sending an email out each time your linux box connects to the net?

ifconfig | mail -s ifconfig my@email.address

in the file /etc/ppp/ip-up

you don't even really need the ifconfig bit - the ip address should appear in the firs recieved part of the headers.
