    I'm trying to setup an FTP server to upload photos and videos to, and tried to setup a program to automatically change the ip on the domain every time it changes, but have been having trouble with it.

    It may help if you shared which program you're talking about and how the connections are supposed to happen? As in internal network, public server or something else.

    When you say your IP changes, I assume you're talking about your public IP from your ISP. With this assumption, this is what dynamic DNS is for. Dynamic DNS is a service where by you can have a domain registered to your account. Depending on your service, your router/firewall may already have a client installed in its firmware to connect into the dynamic DNS service. When the router/firewall sees a change in IP it gets assigned by your ISP, it will automatically contact the dynamic DNS provider and update your domain to the new IP. If your router/firewall doesn't have a built in client, many of these services will have software you can run which will do a periodic check on what your public IP is and if it has changed will connect to the dynamic DNS provider to update. DynDNS is one such company which has pervasive clients built into many routers/firewalls and also has a separate software client you can run.
