When my IP address changes…

When my IP address at home changes, what do I need to do?

I have servers out there on the Internet, which need to know the new IP address.

I need to ssh to each of them and update:

  • /etc/pf.conf – the IP address of my home gateway
  • /etc/hosts
  • /usr/local/etc/nrpe.conf
  • restart stunnel

It’s kind of annoying.

I think much of it could be avoided with a VPN.
