I'm looking for some freeware software that will allow me to monitor an IP that is being ran on DHCP, so I can remote into it when the IP changes.

Anyone know something free and light that will do this?

Hello gregca80
You need this solution in LAN  or WAN-Internet.
For Internet there is few free services, for example www.no-ip.com or www.dyndns.org
For Intranet possibly You may create reserved IP, based on MAC address, on Your DHCP so each time client will lease same IP.
