I have Adelphia Cable also and this is how it works. They use DHCP to issue dynamic ip addresses to their cable modem. The ip address does not change unless you power off the cable modem or there is an power outage in your area. Use ifconfig command to display info about your interfaces (IE: Nic cards), the Nic card cabled from FBSD gateway to cable modem will have an public IP address assigned by Adelphia. Write down that ip address, when at work use ssh to login at that ip address and you will go to your home machine. If you have web server on your FBSD system you can just use IP address in ms/windows internet browser to access your home apache server.
Your other question about using 'dynamic DNS for home computers' has been answered many times in this list. You need to do your home work to earn your strips by first searching this lists archives for you answers. -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Behalf Of Alex (ander Sendzimir) Sent: Wednesday, December 10, 2003 6:43 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Adelphia at home and NAT... I chose Adelphia for my high speed internet service here in lovely Vermont. Well, actually, Adelphia is the ONLY choice. Don't get me started. DSL isn't even in sight. I would like to be able to ssh into my home machine from a remote internet site or someone else's computer. I've tried a couple of things I thought might work and no such lunch. I understand Adelphia might be using NAT to route packets to my home machine. If this is true, does it mean I'm can't ssh remotely? How, if possible, can I get through. There is a company in Boston that advertises a package that does dynamic DNS for home computers. I haven't looked into how it works, though. There's gotta be a way!
