Re: Auto-notify remote user of IP address change?
Thanks all for that. I'm going to give dyndns a shot with ddclient.
My original thought was to somehow output the contents of whatismy.com
to a text file (lynx www.whatismy.cop > .myip ??) and then grep that for
the part with the IP address and mail the result. Is this possible or
am I showing myself up as a hopeless newbie?
Anyway, dyndns looks very promising, so thanks for that.

I'm installing a DB server into a clients office, and I want to be able

The glitch is that the client's ADSL internet access has a dynamic IP
address. I wondered if anyone knew of any good ways that I can get the
debian box (which will be the DB server - and the only one I've access
to) to check what IP address the office gets, and automatically e-mail
me (or something) when it changes?
The full setup for the office is:
My setup at home is similar (though I've got linux desktops) and I I've
tried to get the IP address that the modem is assigned, but the only way
I've been able to is by visiting internet sites (like shields up) that
report that info back.
Any clues greatly appreciated.
