Firstly, I will show you how to configure linksys router for remote access. We will learn how to perform port forwarding to allow remote access. After that, I will show you how to use one of the Dynamic DNS providers you can use for free. The free Dynamic DNS services I am demonstrating here is called noip. I will show you how to setup an account in No-IP and how to configuring DDNS settings with your No-IP account.
Just a foot note, Dynamic DNS (DDNS) is a service for mapping Internet domain names to a computer with dynamic IP Address.
