I've set up a FreeBSD client at our school. The client gets its address via dhcp from the gateway machine which runs Windows NT (yuch!). There is apparently a proxy server installed which blocks http, but I can get out onto the Internet using ssh to login to another server, from where I run lynx if I want to visit web sites. ftp is not blocked, so I can download if I need to.
For run, I would like to run an ftp server on this client machine. For that, I would need to know my real address on the web, but I am not sure how to find this info. If I run ifconfig, it tells me the following: inet addr: 10.0.0.10 Bcast: 10.0.0.31 Mask 255.255.255.224 I can safely assume that 10.0.0.10 is an internal address for this network. I've been pouring through the *BSD documentation I have hoping to find a command that will tell me the address I occupy on the Internet, but so far I haven't found anything. I'm sure the answer is simple, but no joy so far - I'd be grateful if somebody could clue me in. A related question...I do realize that my address could change everytime I fire up the client machine. I'm wondering if I can deal with that by using dyndns? Remember, this would be for an anonymous ftp server, not http.
