For work im sharing my computer at home with a colleague who can connect to it over ssh.But the problem is that i have a dynamic ip address, so i have to tell him what it is everytime. I have heard of DynDNS which gives a url which always points to my ip.But i dont think they offer a free service anymore. Are there any other free alternatives to DynDNS that i can use for getting a url that always points to my latest ip address ?

D-link has a free DynDNS compatible service: – cederlof Mar 17 '13 at 16:44

I haven't used it, but for home use it looks like no ip will work for you.

Even for pro use. I never had any problem with them for 60+ IPs. DynDNS gave me problems sometimes. Never tested any other. – Gregory MOUSSAT Feb 12 '12 at 19:50
