After reviewing the dhcp v3 man pages I was unable to see how to provide 
some remote machine the ablility to update a bind DNS entry with the
reomte machine ISP's newly assigned IP address. I don't know if I made
clear my first request but, what I look for is something that replaces the
services provided by TZO etc. I need something that will allow me to go to
another remote pc and VNC in or something like GoToMyPC.
