    I used to access my home computer from work using RDP into my Cable/Mode into
    my Linksys Wireless-G router. Both PCs were Windows XP, SP2; over Windows
    2003 networks. It was a set-it and forget-it type of configuration through
    DYNU.COM for DNS and it ran smoothly. Got it by word of mouth and most of
    all, it was FREE and very-very reliable! Regrettably, I got laid off from
    that job six months ago and really didn't need to RDP into my home PC since I
    was home. Now I have a new job, want to work remotely again and I went back
    to that free site DYNU.COM but it's no longer available. Heard it went down
    in flames. Does anyone here in the forums know of a comparable site that is
    free and not a 30-day trial or tack on any petty payment schemes like that? I
    know our US economy's bad and everyone's looking to get paid for services now
    a days, but does anyone know of a comparable site to register for FREE DNS?
    Thanks in advance for your response(s)!!
