anyone know if i can use dyn dns to keep my ip address updated?
The NSLU2 cannot do that because it is not a router.
The best way to use these dyn dns service is to have your router supports it natively. For example, I have a Linksys WRT54G as my Internet router/gateway and it supports TZO.com natively in its stock firmware. This way, I simply set it up in the firmware and forget about it. If your router does not understand a dyn dns natively, you have install a program on a computer. This is annoying because you have to leave this computer on all the time. I suppose if this computer is a server, it's ok. But heck, if a router can do it, why not use it? In fact, if you can make a router do anything, it's best to let it do it instead of a PC. Routers take up less space, consume less power, produce no noise, and rarely break down because there are no moving parts in them. I love routers.
