Ddclient not auto updating
My Linksys router had two DDNS update applications running.My zoneedit account was updated using the DD-WRT’s DDNS feature. Currently, my ASUS router allows only one DNS provider and one host, which does not work for me.The following is the format of the DDClient configuration:use=web, web=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com/getipprotocol=namecheap server=dynamicdns.login=yourdomain.compassword=your dynamic dns passwordyourhost Here is the example of its usage.If you would like to set up Dynamic DNS for (without www), check its configuration: If you need to dynamically update a subdomain, substitute the host only:use=web, web=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com/getipprotocol=namecheap server=dynamicdns.login=yourdomain.compassword=a9438540ba8a449fb0ed09c3737b9e32www We welcome your comments, questions, corrections and additional information relating to this article.
