[arm-allstar] DNS Lookup IP Address

There are dynamic DNS clients that will detect the IP address change and update it automatically.  Almost all routers have this built into them and Linux has one as well.  There are many services but, two are opendns.org and dyndns.org. 

So, you choose a unique host name on one of their domains like repeater37 and select one of their domain names (e.g., opendns.org).   Once everything is set up correctly you just connect with ssh or putty to repeater37.opendns.org.  The IP address doesn't matter any more.
