Re: [PLUG] hosting at home- handling dns

You probably won't need dynamic DNS.   Your external IP will probably remain 
stable for as long as you use the same cable modem (it keys off the MAC 
address of the cable modem).

I host several sites, but got a business class account.  This leaves me 
unfiltered access.  I'm pretty sure most home accounts filter extensively, 
especially port 21.  Port 80 may be open, but many people switch to port 8080.
