Yea, not sure if I would want to do that with the amount of troubleshooting I've had to go through. Just seems nice to have the GUI as backup, especially since I'm no where near the professional linux user level currently.

I'll be looking into all of that once I get back to the system though. Thanks again! +rep

Now I think this explanation was false because I can't really understand how it would associate the new IP address.

Dynamic DNS is usually handled with a little piece of software running inside your network. It doesn't have to run on the same computer as the one you're trying to remote into, since any device inside your network will have the same public IP address. The software simply checks what your current public IP and compares it to what your DDNS service of choice has stored for you, and updates that as necessary.
You can also perform the update manually.
