Thx again, Boydddclient couldnt care less what the box IP is.
Every 5 min, it compares the probe of the IP source to what is in /etc/ddclient/ddclient.cache (ddclient-3.6.6).
This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.
They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.
It's updating fine, the problem is that it's giving zoneedit my local IP instead of my public one. The best solution would be to see if you can install a ddns client on the router itself.
Otherwise there are ddns update tools that finger a remote server and ascertain your IP by what this yields.
The real test is whether it updates dyndns within 5 min. The IP address obtain by my router is the router I need updated.
How should I resolve this issue, Should I set up a cron-job for every 1-2hrs?Es muy cómodo utilizar DHCP en una red local, pero tiene un inconveniente: no sabemos qué dirección tiene en cada momento un equipo.Una solución para esto es sincronizar el servidor DHCP con el DNS, creando lo que se denomina un servidor DNS dinámico (DDNS).Click Here to receive this Complete Guide absolutely free.after the system boots I grep and see the following process running "perl -w /usr/sbin/ddclient -daemon 300 -syslog" To me, that translates into, I am going to update dyndns every 300 seconds and write my output to my syslog. "ddclient -daemon=0 -debug -verbose -noquiet" This runs sucessfully.Its almost as if I need to set up a cron job to run the above command every so often to update dyndns, but I shouldnt have to.
