Dynamic IP is a way to increase the pool of limited IP addressees
(theoretically 2^32) in the World Wide Web. Many ISPs use this system, cutting
the connection after a set period thus forcing a redial and a newly assigned
This is bad for the server because the server looses its unique address, which
was known in the network and all its users.
web services offer a way to solve this by allowing static host names
for dynamic IP addresses.
Enter [emDynIP: StaticHostName.host:Port]
as welcome message in the dserver.
For a server with default settings, the port would be 4661.
This will instruct eMule to use the static host name instead of the dynamic
IP when connecting.
It also offers the advantage of adding the host name to staticservers.dat so
its address never gets lost.
||The length of the static host name must be smaller than 51
||This only applies to people running a server for the network. If you are
running the eMule client, it's of no use for you.
||Big kudos to all people running a dserver. You're doing a great service
for the community.
