paypal confirm post back to site

I have been in touch with paypal re once the customer reaches paypal pays and is either accepted or rejected how to have the customer automatically go back to the site and get the success or failure script so that the database is updated or not updated. They have said that IPN is the way to go. Is this the way to go with cart4 and dreamweaver cs3?
Thank you
I have been looking through other posts and maybe I am missing it possible to code the confirm.php so that after the customers payment has been either accepted or rejected, the customer is automatically brought back to the site and the info is posted to the database? My client has a standard pp account.
I generated an ipn script and the databases. Now I am baffled, how does the ipn script and the confirm.php work together. With the ipn I am adding tables to my database and that script will post back to the site, what happens to the confirm and how do the two work together?
