I use the "noip" port in the ports tree with's dynamic dns service (free if you can live with a subdominant-type URL). For the most part it works fine. My ISP doesn't care, although they my upstream bandwidth is only a third of the downstream rate. The only weirdness is my employer's firewall seems to block portions of my web site ("for my own safety"), but this could be due more to my specific config.
