Asterisk with dynamic IP

I have an Asterisk installation on Debian Linux, within my LAN, and it has a private IP, and I do not have a static public IP, but I have a dynamic one.
Is there a way to connect to Asterisk from the outside internet? do I need to install dynamic DNS? would that help?

Hi

yes you can use the DDNS and make a port forward from your router to your inside server IP

or if your router doesn't support port forwarding or DMZ ,, then you need to get one that supports this ...

then from your browser you can put your DDNS host name and get in your server

Use DDND and port forwarding as mentioned. You will also need to set parameters "externhost" and "localnet" in the general section of sip.conf.
 externhost=<FQDN_provided_by_DDNS_provider>
 externrefresh=600
 localnet=192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0

I've found that ZoneEdit.com is a great dynamic DNS service:
