Will I still be able to access my home pc from far away if it is asleep? Does it only wake up when it is "called" by the iPad or does it have to be pants-on the whole time?
DYNDNS allows you to register an easily remembered name that will (if you use the free software) always be correct and up to date. Using an IP address only works if the address doesn't change. We've had customers whose ISP supplied address changes a oule of times a year, breaking port forwarded connections that were based on the ip address.
If you rely on the ip address you get from your ISP to connect you should confirm that you are getting a static address or have a fall back plan for how you will connect when the address changes.
