    I am about to jump into hacking this little box to act as a webserver for my home. The one question that I am having trouble answering is whether there is a dynamic dns client that has been ported to run under one of the hacked firmwares. I have been to www.nslu-linux.org and there is some mention of this but I cannot find the package. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    The NSLU. I have a linksys WCG 200 as my router/cable modem. Is it possible to hack the router to do this? Thanks and sorry for the confusion.

    i dont think that you could hack this router. if it does work with a firmware then you will lose everyting accept the wireless and maybe the 4 port switch on the back. i would not do it if i were you. again you might lose the cable modem functionality of it. becuase the firmware does not support it

    That is kinda what i figured. So i guess I am back to finding a DynDNS client for the NSLU linux project.

    you could always invest in a WRT54G they are cheap. look in ebay. or radioshack

    I just wanted to bring this to the top. Maybe some one can help me with my slug?

    the updater that you can run on your comptuer is ok. nothing real special about it. gets the job done

    I figured that dyndns.com would probably have one. It is just that I am new to the linux world. The reason that I am wanting to do this is to point to my websute without having a computer running. Thanks for the helpb

    quick question for you linux experts: Does the client have to compiled for the ARM processor that the slug runs or can it be any linux client

    Either natively in the NSLU2 itself (for the ARM cpu, yes), or on a linux machine, with all the NSLU2 build tools (again for the ARM cpu).
    This Sunday I may try to compile it, and see how it goes. Probably something is fishy, if there is no ipkg yet.

    Man great find. Thanks for all the help with this. I guess that I need to get my slug and see if I can work this on myself. what I am really wanting is a web server, ftp server, dynDNS and print server and media server. I think that should be doable. Again thanks to everyone that helped with this.

    i am guessing that this will not work in the WRT54G

    I just realized something. I dont think that this will report the ip adress of the router but rather the ip adress assigned on the home network. will this work if I place it in the DMZ or will i still only get the local ip?

    You should always get the real IP assigned to the WAN interface of the router. My DynDNS never shows my internal network IP. Always the real one on the WAN interface.

    so the dyndns client will reprot the wan ip even though that is not the ip of the slug that it is running on?
