How do I configure DDNS in my SBG6782? 

The SBG6782 supports the usage of a Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS).  DDNS service provides the ability to assign a static Internet domain name to a dynamic IP address, which allows the SBG6782 to be easily accessed from various locations over the Internet.  Dynamic DNS is disabled by default.  This document describes how to enable and configure Dynamic DNS.

NOTE 1: Dynamic DNS service is required, which can be obtained at the DynDNS website.

NOTE 2: This feature is not available for units that have been purchased or leased from Time Warner.
