Note: Your "Add Custom Service" step should be able to just do Port 2000 to Port 2000 instead of Port 1999 to Port 2001.

Otherwise, nice guide. :)

Also, did you know that http://www.no-ip.com offers the free dynamic service (if you didn't want to pay dyndns)? I personally have accounts with both and they both work just fine for me.

Actually if you choose the dyndns from the dropdown menu and then input the host you get from no-ip.com, it works just the same... It stumped me too for a little while and then figured it's the same.

Hope it helps!

It all depends on your brand of router and the firmware it's on I believe.

As far as I'm aware, you can also get custom firmware to add more dns service providers

Thanks for the info though - hopefully it will help someone out :)
