Want access to your files stored at home? How about hosting a home web server? Static IPs are expensive, if you can even get one. We set up Dynamic DNS instead!
'Back in the day' if you wanted to run a web server, email server, or FTP server from home you needed a static IP... and they often added quite a bit to the monthly bill from your ISP.
Dynamic DNS, however, lets you use a DHCP assigned address -the kind you probably have at home- just like a static IP address. That means if you have a broadband connection and sign up for a free account at DynDNS you can run a website or FTP server straight from your home.
We show you how to set it up on this episode of Systm, along with a quick and easy way to share files you and your friends can access through any browser: HFS, the HTTP File Server!
