I just set up OpenDNS on my router and it is successfully updating my dynamic IP address. I want to remotely connect to a computer on my home network. I can connect using IP and port (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:port), but I'd need to constantly change my connection settings when my IP changes. I've searched around and have seen reference to people using a subdomain that they own (ie: house.mydomain.com) in place of the IP address, but I can't figure out how to get this subdomain linked to OpenDNS so that it is forwarded to the correct IP address. I can change the DNS records of this subdomain, but I don't know where to point it so that OpenDNS resolves it to my dynamic IP. Is this even something that I can do with OpenDNS or do I need to use something else?
