I have been experimenting with sub-domain delegation lately, and I have implemented a cool new experimental feature for TrueIP Online. When you sign up and have the TrueIP desktop client report your computer’s latest external IP address, it will shortly update on my DNS server as well. That means you will no longer have to log into your TrueIP account online just to retrieve the IP address. You can now use <your-host>.<your-user-name>.my.trueip.us to connect directly to that IP address! As long as you can remember your computer name and TrueIP Online username, you will be able to access your systems from anywhere in the world. If you have an account, it should already be working for you. If you’ve never used TrueIP Online, feel free to sign up and check it out.
If you have any questions or comments about this new feature, please let me know, either by commenting on this post or sending me a message via my contact page.
Happy IP Wrangling!
