&gt; I plan on installing a Linux machine at my father's house to be an
&gt; offsite backup.  It will be sitting on a private lan behind a SMC
&gt; wireless router.  The router is attached to Comcast.  I need some way of
&gt; having this box report to me every day what its IP address is.
&gt; One idea is to write a client/server app in perl that will simply send a
&gt; hello UDP packet.  I can then parse the source address from that packet.
&gt; Then the perl script will update my /etc/hosts file on my server in
&gt; Buford.  He lives in Lincolnton, NC.
&gt; Thanks,
