We have a file server within our office and are trying to access it remotely.
I work from home and need to access this file server (which is hooked up through a router and firewall).
The router will only accept connections from known ip addresses so we got ourselves dyndns accounts which worked great for 1 or 2 weeks then stopped working. We then got ourselves no-ip addresses and the same happened with those, they worked until when (we think our ip addresses changed).
We have had words with the network admin and he said the no-ip addresses are matching our ip addresses at home. He also set the router to resolve the hostnames every 4 hours.
Does anyone know if there are any solutions to our problem? is this a regular occurance with resolution of hostnames etc?
