  1. Hey all,
    With my webserver and gaming servers, I need to be able to connect to my global IP like my friends do. I know about being the local IP, but I specificly need to be able to connect to my public IP for specific reasons.

    I am using XP SP2, Speedstream 4200 router.

    sign up for dynamic dns (it's free) and it assigns a name to your dns, and tracks it for you. so instead of having to type ip address you can type, ect.

    I already have a DynDNS account and the tool for it.

    Most residential End User License agreements prohibit running any server(s).

    You ought to go to your ISP home page and find the Terms of Usage or EULA
    and validate your usage.

    Would be a shame to one day find your account shutdown :(
