Hey guys, not sure if this is the correct location for this thread,
My isp is dynamic (no option of paying for static), but not so dynamic that i can use dyndns or alternative (they close my account due to the IP not changing too often).
I wanted to create a script to run on my WD Mybook, that polled a internet page (www.whatismyip.com/automation/n09230945.asp), downloaded the output of this page then uploaded it via ftp to my domain so i can access from anywhere and always know the ip address of my router. Ideally i would like the script to run every couple of hours.
i am new to the whole mybook hacking and new to linux, but i have programmed in other languages. not sure how to go about this? would i use wget command?
Thanks for any help
