Need to map a local IP address to a Dynamic IP Address

I have a program that only allows you to input an IP address not a domain name. I have a site that has a dynamic ip address I would like to be able to put in a local IP address and have that map to their dynamic domain name. This seems like it should be possible, but I can't figure it out and I need it in a hurry.

Have you looked at dyndns.org?
You could set up your domain information there and then in your hosts file, specify whatever local IP address should point to that system...

I am using no-ip, so I have the dynamic part figured out. What I can not figure out is how I can map the local IP to the domain name.

I dont know if I am understanding the question or not but you need to a domain name (DDNS) to a local IP inside your network?

If this is the question I am thinking it is why dont you use your hosts file?  Add an entry to the hosts file for the domain with the local IP address.  When you put that domain in your browser it would go to that local IP.

Sorry if this is not what you needed.

I need that reversed. I want to put in a local IP address and have it resolve to the DDNS. So if I put in 192.168.1.1 it will then go to say "whatever.no-ip.info" and then to the IP address that the DNS supplies.

If I am able to do that from the hosts file I cannot figure out the syntax.

I have thought about it and what I really need is similar to NAT translation on a firewall, but reversed. If I enter a domain name on the outside of a firewall I get the IP address that is associated with the domain name. I wan to be able to enter a internal IP address and get the external Domain name. Once that is accomplished the Domain name would then be translated to the IP address associated with the Domain name via DDNS.

I can only see this happening by installing some sort of router, passing all traffic to a specific destination.  And then, I don't know if that is feasible or not...
Interesting dilema.  
I'll remain subscribed in hopes of you not only acquiring a solution, but also me learning something new today! :)

Good luck!

Please refund and close question. I discovered a third party tool that allows what I need. The tool is called ComTun® Pro 4.6a . The program is a firewall proxy etc, that allow you to map ports to a remote host by IP or by Name.
