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

I'd use no-ip.com or some dynamic DNS setup.  I've been using no-ip.com for
a while with no problems.  Sounds like it'd solve your problem.
