GETTING STARTED: Dynamic DNS (DDNS)

Ingredients:

  • Router with DDNS feature support (ex: RT-AC66R)
  • DDNS provider (ex: no-ip)
  • http-server exposing some service at some port and running using static-IP

Steps:

  • Sing-up for DDNS server provision and specify your host-name (ex: intelmakers.ddns.net)
  • Configure your router’s DDNS settings

  • At your router, add your service to port forwarding table

  • Try to access your service using host-name and service port. Any Internet browser shall be fine for that. Mozilla FireFox is most recommended for custom HTTP servers.
