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.
