Do I need DDNS to access my PC?

I use Suse Linux Desktop 10.0 with a public IP address. Do I need Dynamic DNS (DDNS) to access my PC from the local LAN or WAN?

You will not if you try to access it using the actual IP address. If you are trying to access it by machine name or other mapped name, then you will either need a Domain Name System (DNS) or DDNS entry.
