|I'd like to set up a mobile client, and have its DNS updated automatically.
How do I do this?

|In the DNS settings, if you set 'Mobile' instead of 'Fixed' for a name,
then the Pliant DNS will tel other DNSs and clients that this name -> IP
assignment must not be cached more than 2 minutes instead of 24 hours for
a standard name.
Now the way to discover the new IP address of the mobile computer is something
you have to decide. One possibility is your mobile computer to request an
URL on the HTTP server, and as a result, the HTTP server will know the current
IP address of the mobile computer and update it's database accordingly, through
name_database:data:name:"mylaptop.mydomain.org":ip := http_request:stream query "remote_ip_address"
