So I don't know if my ISP is retarded or it's my computer (or me...) Here's the deal, I am trying to SSH into a server that does a reverse lookup and I think looks for my hostname before allowing me to connect. Well, it cannot find my hostname (I verified that ppl can't see my hostname because two friends of mine tried tracerouting and saw no hostname either. So what can I do? How do I "get a hostname"? Please help, this is urgent, thanks.
PS. I am running XP, have Verizon DSL which uses dynamic IP.
Are you also going through some sort of router as well?
no, the setup is from wall to dsl modem to my network card
