ThinkPad X30 IIS based Web Server and "no-ip.com" DNS host!


I did set up a Windows (IIS) web server on my old IBM ThinkPad X30 machine and using the DNS host service from no-ip.com I can access the web server over the internet using an URL instead of my dynamic  IP address. no-ip.com offers a client for Windows, Mac and UNIX that checks the WAN dynamic IP address and updates the DNS service with the new dynamic IP!   no-ip.com let you create multiple DNS hosts for dedicated services like Http, ftp, .. etc and using their client software i mentioned before you can choose which host (service) you want to activate and also link to the server machine or other machine on the network.
