Note, if you are behind a firewall, or use a proxy this feature is perhaps not as useful. If on the other hand you use the Web Server feature of BrowseX to serve out files and web content, then DynDNS can be very useful.
Registering A Domain NameThe first step is to click on Register A DNS Name in Edit/Prefs/Network/DynamicDNS. After registering your host in the browsex.com domain (or other), fill in the matching fields in the BrowseX DynDNS preferences. Then click on Enable and Auto Update At Startup then Done/Update and your all set. Every time you restart BrowseX it will update your IP address on the mydns.baremetal.com server.
OffliningWhen you shutdown your PC or otherwise loose your IP address, some other user can be assigned it. This would mean that others trying to get to your PC will be unknowingly connecting to someone else. To avoid this use the File/Offline-DNS menu option.
Be aware. When you offline, it can take 10 or more minutes before the next Online request will be honored. So use sparingly.
Thanks to http://baremetal.com for providing the DNS servers free of charge.
