Ddclient not auto updating
I have ddclient configured to use dyns.org, but for some reason it is not updating if my new ip addresses?
Im not so sure there is a probably with my conf file as there maybe something blocking the port it uses. Thanks in advance, Boyd Here is all pid=/var/run/protocol=dyndns2 use=if, if=eth0 server=members.login=xxxx password=xxx xxxx.Silly question: Did you read the README file in the package?
1) Can you tell if it is getting a valid IP address?
Try running the debugger: #ddclient -daemon=0 -debug -verbose -noquiet and look though the output for hints.
I tried to configure it based on the web help (ddclient.sourceforge.net) and really screwed it up the first time.
Configuring the current package is very different for what you read online.
I think I have an issue with my network, I am able to resolve internet addresses but u/a to ping them. Thx again, Josh Yes, it sounds like the short term problem is a networking problem.
My universal helpful suggestion is to stop the iptables service and try ddclient again. You can resolve a Fully Qualified Domain Name to an IP address, but pinging it doesnt work? If the server is using a static IP address, are the gateway IP and DNS addresses properly defined on the server?
The installation will complete and the application will ask for your account information.Yea it resolves the ip address of but i can not ping it.PING 56 data bytes --- statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss Thx, Boyd How odd.PS: It is a really, really nice utility when you (eventually) get it to run, but the current documentation is horrible.

You can also set each update Client ID to a custom name for example, home, work, client name, etc to help keep track of each.
