First i run the noip2 program and then i take some info with the following:
# noip2 -S
1 noip2 process active.
Process 20415, started as /usr/home/nikos/noip2, (version 2.1.7)
Using configuration from /usr/local/etc/no-ip2.conf
Last IP Address set 0.0.0.0
Updating every 30 minutes via /dev/re0 with NAT enabled.
as u can see the last IP it gets is 0.0.0.0
Why is that?Do i have to port forward or modify any files inside the FreeBSD?
when i execute the command 'dig <my-no-ip>' i get:
; <<>> DiG 9.4.2-P2 <<>> mynoip.no-ip.org

but my WAN ip is not 188.8.131.52 as i can see in http://www.ip-address.com.
Also when i ping myip.no-ip.org i get the packets with 0% loss.
So, what all this output from dig means?
Also when i run noip2 command again i get Last IP address get 0.0.0.0
I have set up the my no-ip account with windows XP and i have used it for a long time now. But i think in FreBSD i cant configure it to work properly. Consider that i have a router that is assigned the LAN ip 192.168.0.1, a desktop that is assigned the LAN ip 192.168.0.2 and the laptop-FreeBSD that is assigned the LAN ip 192.168.0.3.
