I have a dsl connection with a dhcp address. I have a router hooked up to the modem and outbound internet requests work fine.
But here is what I am trying to do:
I want to be able to use my work computer to access the home internet connection and specifically access a linux box that is hooked up to the router. The linux box is not my normal home pc, but rather it is a workstation that runs an application that runs my external home security system. I want to be able to view the home security system off this linux box.
I do not have the funds to buy a static IP address from my dsl provider (which would obviously make this easy).
Some options that are available to me:
1. I am the owner of a domain name, with shared space for my domain on an ISPs shared server. Can I somehow use my domain name as a way to connect to this linux box?
2. I am willing to buy shareware or software that could enable my DHCP address to be available for connection (if such software exists)
I am not too technical, but I am willing to read through manuals to find the proper setup configuration on whatever solution you offer.
Any ideas? Is this possible to do?
