Peer to peer over DSL with dynamic IP's?

By will ·
I have a small client with 2 locations. They have DSL service at both locations, using DHCP with US-West/Quest. One location has a Cisco 675 DSL router (external) tied to a hub with 2 nodes.
The other location only has 1 PC with an internal DSL *modem* that only connects upon request.

The client wants to connect one PC from the 1st location to the PC at the second location using their DSL connection. As I stated, both locations are assigned an IP via DHCP from USW/Quest... the location with the Cisco 675 may change once a week or so, the one with the internal card gets one each log in.

What would be the most reliable method to achieve this? Should I and can I use a 3rd party package such as PC-Anywhere? Or is there a better solution?

Thank you,
Will

Sounds like your main trick is getting the IPS. PCAnywhere would work, but you still need to know where to connect to.

My service consists of of the Intel modem you described with the second office. I setup a small file server with it once byusing a IP poster to a website I setup. Although a bit crude it did the job.

I suppose if you really want it hands off, you could setup a file one some public web server and then let the other side downloads a new IP everyday.

I don't envy you at all for this one because this could get pretty hairy.

Good luck to you

Mark
