I would like to be able to access my home PC to stream videos from it. I am the only one accessing it (I dont expect other people to access it).
I have beyond TV setup and am able to access and stream the video to other PCs on my home network, but I would like to do this from outside my home network as well. My big problem is that my internet provider doesn't offer Static IP addresses.
Am I just hosed? Or is there someway for me to still access my PC from outside?
How often do DHCP IP addresses change?
Would it be possible to make my home PC check its own IP every so often and when it sees a new IP address it would send me an email with the new ip address? Even if this is possible, I believe I need to configure my router to redirect requests to a different IP address. Would that be possible with the scenario I just suggested?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated!
