Allstar nodes register periodically with register.allstarlink.org (Please refer to the register statement in
/etc/asterisk/iax.conf). The registration server collects the IP addresses it sees, and maintains an updated list of
IP addresses for every active node. This list is then requested periodically by all active nodes and is used to
make connections and validate incoming connectons.

We used to rely on a Dynamic DNS service, but registration replaced that.

If you are planning on being able to remotetly ssh into the node, then you will need to set up some form of Dynamic DNS
client.  We prefer using the inadyn client for this purpose.
