connecting to a device thro it's MAC address
Posted on 2006-05-23
I have a question which is sounds wierd to me itself, but was thinking whether i could connect to a computer or a device such as a modem or router thro it's MAC address remotely from another location.
i have a ADSL internet connection at "location 1" . The internet connection which is a "dynamic IP" is NATed to internal ip range or LAN ip's. Here there is a FTP server running with the current internet IP address assigned to me.
Situation is that whenever there is a change in the IP address, i will not be able to access the FTP server..
In another "location 2" , i have a internet connection and want to connect to "location 1" modem / router , and get to know the current IP address assigned so that i can change the FTP site address, so that it is accessible again over the internet.
the query now is --- is there a way to connect to the modem / router thro its MAC address which is "static" and get to know the current IP address assigned to this device.
