There is a pop-before-dyndns service running on dyn.smarden.org. This service knows about the dynamic hostname floyd.dyn.smarden.org and handles it respectively. Simply connect to the POP mailbox email@example.com with your favorite POP3 client to update the DNS record floyd.dyn.smarden.org. Don't worry, the POP mailbox always is empty, you never get mail from it.
Easy to remember:
$ telnet dyn.smarden.org 110 Trying a.b.c.d... Connected to dyn.smarden.org. Escape character is '^]'. +OK <firstname.lastname@example.org> USER floyd +OK PASS guest +OK QUIT Connection closed by foreign host. $Check the dynamic hostname:
$ dnsipq floyd.dyn.smarden.orgThe output should contain your system's IP address.
