You are using "syslog=yes".

A few line down you mention that your domain is "soundgigi.dyndns.org". So I would use the configuration part for dyndns (especially the server).

If your router answers to pings yes. It's perhaps safer to do a dns lookup for "soundgigi.dyndns.org" after you connected. It should point to the IP that you are using at the moment. A ping to that adress might go to another host so it's not a proof that everything worked. > > So and after that i set my IP in the freenet.config to > soundgigi.dyndns.org, right ? yes. > I appreciate your help very much !! -- str->str_pok |= SP_FBM; /* deep magic */ s = (unsigned char*)(str->str_ptr); /* deeper magic */ -- Larry Wall in util.c from the perl source code
