Thanks, I figured there would be scripts for the BSD side, the PPoE ADSL
FreeBSD box I have out there automatically e-mails me it's address when
it changes or reboots but I'm hoping to make get the other devices
(Netgear, Linksys) addresses too. We map inbound ports for remote
support on these. Dropping FreeBSD boxes out there would be nice but the
Netgears are easier to source and configure for the local user should
one blow up.
