Hi there everyone!
While trying to set up an FTP server at my home years ago, I realized that my ISP had me behind a firewall in which tons of people displayed the same external IP address(I think I remembered it being called a NAT). I eventually gave up.
While reading up on OwnCloud, I saw mention a few times of DynDNS and related services that would allow users with temp IPs to still connect to their computer outside of the local network.
Would a service like this also allow someone like me to do the same? Does DynDNS act as a tunnel of sorts or is it just an IP tracker for people that have their own?
If it wouldn't suit my needs, is there some type of service or software I could use to end up with an externally accessible name or IP?
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!
