DDNS from behind a router and cable modem
Posted on 2008-02-07
When setting up DDNS, does the cable modem and router have to support DDNS?
I'm on a laptop attached to a router, which is attached to a cable modem. When I browse to the DDNS URL, I get connected to the admin page for the cable modem... so it seems that the DDNS service is forwarding requests to the external IP address of this network... NOT to my laptop within the network.
Is that supposed to happen? Do I have to setup DDNS within the cable modem and router?
Or are there DDNS services that can transparently traverse routers and modems?
