How do I access my home computer remotely if I have dynamic IP ?

Go to solution

I sometimes need to get remote access to my home PC (when I am on long holidays).

 

I had static IP from BE for years and never bothered to look around.. I know there is a thing called dynamic DNS. But from what I understood is that my router needs to support it.

 

I had TP-Link which had native support for few Dynamic DNS services. But the BT HH5 - I dont see it anywhere.. Looked on the web - people say the access is intentionally disabled..

 

So my question is - whats the easiest / cheapest way to access my PC without knowing the current IP address of the HH5 ?

 

(I dont need it often - may be a dozen days a year but this must 100% reliable - I work from home so if I need to access it it has to be done, otherwise I might as well break the holiday and fly back)..

You can not get a static IP address on a BT residential package. Have you thought about using one of the web based sites such as LogMeIn.

Its actually quite easy to do, even on a dynamic IP address.

 

The HH5 supports DynDNS and a couple of others. Look on the hub help pages under Dynamic DNS.

If you need more help, then let me know.
