dynamic dns

HOWTO set up Dynamic DNS to your Linux BoxHOWTO Make Your Mac a Web ServerI've posted two Dynamic DNS howto's on a site, with lots of screenshots so it's pretty easy to follow. Neither are completely perfect but together they give a pretty good overview of how to do the whole dynamic dns thing. An HPR episode covering the Linux tutorial is forthcoming, as well.They're really basic, too; it's just that I know nothing of networking and just figured this stuff out. I'm sure someone out there will find this useful (unless I really am the only person who didn't know how to do this already).One was done on my Linux box, on how to set up Dynamic DNS so you can SSH to your home computer from where ever you are. This tutorial resulted in my desire to...SSH to my home computer from where ever I happened to be.The other is how to put your computer on the world wide web...which I didn't want to do with my own computer because I don't know enough about security yet to subject my own data to the internet. The answer? subject a computer at work to the internet! So all the screenshots on the Howto Make Your Computer a Web Server were taken on a Mac at work, and in fact relies heavily on the fact that in OS X Apache is already installed. On a Linux box, were I to ever try this, I'd isntall Apache with the Linux Reality Home Server mini-series close at hand.Enjoy. Hope it helps some noob out there.




Klaatu-
Thank you for helping me through Tom Chaudoir of goinglinux.com
explaining how to extract audio from youtube.

I am on day 12 of Linux & could do this easily using Audacity in Windows.

Tom mentioned (after beating himself repeatedly)
that you got him pointed in the right direction.
He sent me the instructions last night
and I tried it out this morning.
Piece-of-cake.
Thanks again!

Thanks for the comment.No problem. Linux is, as I'm sure you know, ridiculously powerful...it just sometimes takes either learning a new application or set of applications to get the job done, a shift in how you're looking at how to accomplish something, or just knowing what and who to ask about something.Being on day 12 of using Linux is kind of a wonderful and horrible place to be but we were all there once (or twice). Good luck and don't hesitate to ask questions if you need help. I think one thing to do, and probably this has been said before about Linux and other things, is to forget what you know about computing already. I find still that the more I do that, the quicker I pick up new tricks in Linux.And good choice to listen to "Going Linux". That show is essentially the new "Linux Reality"; a great show about really practical things. It's really a helpful show and I highly recommend it to anyone learning or using Linux.

Nope I disagree...My previous Windows experience has helped me understand the structure of computing which enabled me to jump into Linux requiring just a bit of redirection.BTWAfter Tom helped me, via your suggestion, wouldn't you figure I would come across a better way?via maketecheasierI find my place in experiencing Linux more wonderful than horrible. I cannot imagine going back.Looking for the next challenge. It cannot be this easy.

cool tip with http://maketecheasie.../06/30#more-508glad you're finding Linux easy! That ought to put an end to a few myths. I guess if one is a techy person, then it doesn't matter whether they're running Mac, Windows, or Linux; could it be that being a hacker transcends the OS? Well I draw the line at introspection and philosophy, so I'll stop while I'm ahead.
