Re read the original post. I already have two (2) routers, Mu running dual eth cards and NAT for the local
net and a hardware router in the Astrophysics lab handling the external connection.

Freesco, Mu, LRP,Coyote even that other stuff from Gates all have the same problem, unless you can run
your dyndns client on the far end router ie the one that has the direct internet connection,your ip will always
point to the address of the machine that you are using and not the internet ip.

The only way around this is to use an URI POST method of the form:-
http:// provider url/dyndnspage>/?
hence the need to be able to find the far end router external ip
