The way I do it with my router (BEFW11S4 V2) is to use lynx to download the HTML status page from the router and extract the public IP address. I do this in a cron job every 15 minutes, and when it notices an IP change, it fires off my dynamic DNS updates. -- Matt Emmerton _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
