Sorry if I'm being dense here, but this is my first encounter with dynamic DNS and I feel like I'm missing – or misunderstanding – a key element.
So far, I've created an OpenDNS account, added a network for a current dynamic IP address, given it a name, and installed the Updater software on my PC. All of this is working fine as far as I can tell, but I thought I'd maybe get a 'friendly' domain name or IP address that never changes and automatically redirects to whatever the current (dynamic) IP address is, so that I can use that to, for example, remote log-in to my home PC. Or is that not how it works? Do I have to always log-in to my OpenDNS account to find my current home IP address and enter that into the connection properties?
