DynDNS is a paid service offered by http://www.dyn.com that enables a dynamic IP address to act as a static one. If you configured a DynDNS account in the client in the past, the use of DynDNS will improve your connectivity and thereby decrease the time to get your client online. This makes it easier for your device to be found either on the FAUbox network or by a privately invited device.
