A friend of mine asked me howto configure DDNS client in Windows, so he ca remotely access his PC from the remote location, In my previous article  at
https://aacable.wordpress.com/tag/aacable-dynamicdns/
I described howto howto configure DynamicDNS (changeip.com) on Mikrotik  for remote management,but in this following short guide I will tell you how you can configure dynamicdns on windows using the ddns client.

To configure dynamicdns client (changeip.com) on windows base OS, First create your account at changeip.com (its well described at https://aacable.wordpress.com/tag/aacable-dynamicdns/)

After your account is created, now  download and install dynamic dns client (known as homingbeacon) from following location

http://www.changeip.com/dns/homingbeacon/default.aspx

Installation is fairly simple. Just clicking few next next 🙂

After installation is done, execute “The HomingBeacon Console” from the windows start menu. After its open , click on ‘I already have changeip.com account‘  (If you don’t already have the account, you can create it from the web or clicking on ‘) am a new changeip.com customer’

It will update the public IP of your WAN to your account at changeip.com

Verify it by going to your changeip.com account, and see if the ip is updated properly. Now its time to configure your DSL router to create port forwarding rule, so required connections can be made from remote location.
For example you want to host HTTP Server on your local PC and want to access it remotely, open your DSL Router Page, and

Login to your dsl modem control panel.
