You're trying to set up an NFS server and need to know what input values to use. Specifically, how is the NFS server accessed after it is booted?
You will want to create A-records for your NFS server in DNS Made Easy - you can call it something simple like nfs.yoursite.com. Set the record to use Dynamic DNS and enter a dummy IP of 126.96.36.199. Click on the "question mark" in the DDNSID column to get the record number to provide in the inputs below. The input is called DNS_ID.
Here is an example:
|DNS_ID||text: 3727653 <<<---- put the DDNSID from DNS Made Easy here!|
|MON_PROCESSES||text:nfsd4 nfsd rpc.mountd rpc.statd portmap rpc.rquotad|
|NFS_BACKUP_BUCKET||text: yourbucket (enter the name of one of your S3 buckets)|
|NFS_BACKUP_INTERVAL||text: 30 (this will be the time in minutes)|
To access your NFS server you do not care or need to worry about the IP address because when the server booted, it registered itself in DNS Made Easy with its IP address. So any number of clients from anywhere only need to know its hostname:
