As I've said many times before, I have XP Pro, with a broadband connection. Sadly, that connection is a direct connection via AOL servers Cheap, but not ideal. The problem is, that I don't have a static IP, and thus, its forever changing. I would like to be able to remotely access my computer, but without it's IP this is pretty difficult. Is there any way in which I can set out a kind of beacon on the internet with a static IP (that only I can acess with a password, and only I know where to look for it), that will enamble me to keep track of my machines current IP in order to connect with say, netmeeting? If that's overly complicated (bearing in mind I don't want to use third party software!), is there any other way of keeping track of it?
