Having dynamic IP address is full of hindrances if you want to use your machine from other place in the world. But if you have your own domain, a linux based desktop and server (which manages of your domain) I can help you probably. I have used this script for years and I haven’t any problems. I hope that it will help you too.
You need the following things:
- A linux based server which manages your domain by the bind service.
- A httpd server with php support on the server
- A linux based client computer
- Elinks program on the client to connect to the server and leave an IP address
The script contains:
1) The script which is works on the client:
- send_ip.sh – to connect to a web server on the server and leave an IP address. You have to add this script to the crontab service
2) Scripts which are work on the server:
- domain.tld.sh – for checking the ipek.ip if a new IP address was left. You have to add this script to the root crontab service
- ipek.php – a simple PHP script which only writes an IP address from clients which were connected
How it works:
- send_ip.sh is launched periodically on the client and tries connect to the server to the ipek.php location script
- domain.tld.sh is launched periodically on the server and checks ipek.ip for a new IP address. If an IP address isn’t changed then it will do nothing. Otherwise, the script changes a domain configuration in the bind service and restarts it. Afterwards a new IP address will be assigned to the subdomain (see the $SUBDOMAIN option)
ipek.php should has a completely unusual address location, for example: domain.tld/get-my-ip-jackass-now-73923448/ipek.php – otherwise you risk that your domain may be assigned to a foreign IP address. ;-)
