You can have your own dns servers or actually have external addresses for every computer. Myself, I never have anything natted or internal networks. I see no reason as I have been given enough ip addresses.

I agree with you, what you describe is what most of the people have.

No, because we're dealing in Private Addresses, not Public ones.

DDNS (at least, traditionally) asks an external server to tell it what it's IP address is from the outside world, and from the outside world, they'd all only ever return 1 IP.

Except for my public-facing compute r (which is a static IP because i forward some ports to it from the router), all my others just use avahi so I can ssh between them with computername.local and not have to worry about setting up the static IP correctly. This has the added benefit that you don't have to remember any IP addresses or worry about a /etc/hosts file or anything like that -- it just works.

Glad I don't live in Germany then. 🙂

With avahi running on all of my Linux boxes, and Apple mDNSresponder stuffs on the other couple of OS X boxes, I've gone back to dhcp for all of the IPs on my lan save one that needs some ports forwarded to it. Plus, I don't have to worry about updating /etc/hosts on each box all the time o/.
