ftpUP was designed as a more reliable and quicker acting alternative to dyndns for making Web servers, which are connected via dial-up links, available under a fixed address. It gets your IP on a definable interface and creates an html document containing the current URL of your local server, and uploads it to an existing website. You can also include a logo or other information in the file which is uploaded. Another advantage over dyndns is that the link can point to any URL, ie. your websites can be delivered from anywhere else if your local server goes offline.
