It does? How? The daemon will be running on the Freebsd machine, which
does not have the external ip address. I use dynamic dns services here
and there but so far as I know they all require a daemon running on the
machine which actually has the relevant dynamic address.
This is drifting slightly off-topic, but I'm interested to know.
