"If you don't have a domain name, you need to set one up. If you don't have a fixed IP address, you need to enlist the aid of one of the Dynamic DNS services. The service I is TZO. We will be using my pseudo-domain (blacklotus.tzo.com) in the example here."

Frequently, these servers run continually and manage their own connections. Network servers can also be written to run under a special program called a super server, such as inetd or tcpserver."
