dyndns - do i need it
Posted on 2012-03-16
hi i have configured a windows 2003 network with an isa 2006 acting as my firewall, but the isa2006/external nic2 recieves a dhcp: 192.168.0.3/24 address from my residential netgear router built-in dhcp box. that also provides my isp internet ip address on 126.96.36.199 which is the device ip of my netgear router box so that i can receive internet access.
my address is supposed to be dynamic according to my isp, but everytime i check over the last 4 months it has never changed!!!!
i have however also configured my network to allow vpn remote access from home and i have also configured my laptop for vpn connection by using the same address: 188.8.131.52 but it keeps failing!!
during a local test i plug my laptop into my netgear router box to test my vpn and i receive the correct: 10.0.0x/24 network address from my internal dhcp successfully and can open up network places and see my domain name but to test properly from a remote location is my issue!!
questions 1. i have been told that this works but wanted to know if by using 'dyndns', would then rectify my problem ?
