Hyper-kun is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

What do you mean with "similar" problem? Do you mean you have the same problem? Otherwise, please describe the exact problem you have.

You can configure Gtk-Gnutella so that it announces a hostname (e.g., example.dyndns.invalid) instead of just its IP address. You can also enforce a certain IP address if Gtk-Gnutella guesses a wrong one. You can also enforce ultrapeer mode.

If you have a dynamic IP address but want to enforce it nonetheless, you'll have to update the setting whenever your IP address changes.

Let's say you have a script /etc/ppp/ip-up which is executed by root whenever your IP address changes. You could then use this script to update
the forced IP address:

IP_ADDRESS=$4 # The IP address is passed as second parameter
su - gtkg-user -c "(echo HELO; echo set forced_local_ip $IP_ADDRESS; echo set force_local_ip TRUE; ) | gtk-gnutella --shell"

Note that this requires Gtk-Gnutella from SVN. Otherwise you'd have to use netcat to access the remote shell (which has to be enabled as well).
