    Question Dynamic DNS...

    Does anyone know if there is a good Dynamic DNS program out there for FC6? I need one that will determine the IP of my router and then send it to where I have my domain name

    I just saw some instructions on about this

    UNIX Clients:

    DDClient 3.0 is a Perl client used to update dynamic DNS entries for accounts on many dynamic DNS services. You can get it here:
    IPCheck has built in support for popular CABLE/DSL NAT routers. It works on OS/2 as well as most Unix's. Source code & documentation is here: Python is required.
    From one of our customers: It's very easy to update the dynamic zoneedit entries on UNIX with either of these two command lines (if you have wget or lynx installed):
    lynx -source -auth=usernameassword ''

    wget -O - --http-user=username --http-passwd=password ''

    PPP users should place one of the above commands (or a perl client) in the file /etc/ppp/ip-up or /etc/ppp/ppp.linkup, which are called whenever a ppp connection is made.

    Users of dhcpcd may place these commands in the file /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.exe or /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth1.exe which are executed whenever a new dynamic IP address is acquired.
    I want to use the wget option, as that seems the simplest, but cannot fine the dhcpcd-eth0.exe file...there wasn't even a dhcpc directory...but I know that my Linux machine is running DHCP...any ideas where that file might be, or another easy way to do this??

    Ok, I've decided to go with the perl client mentioned above, but I need a little more guidance on how to set this up...the current contents of my /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf file are below

    # /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf
    ## ZoneEdit (
     daemon=300                              # check every 300 seconds
     syslog=yes                              # log update msgs to syslog
     use=if,                     if=eth0            # via interfaces,              \
     protocol=zoneedit1,                   \
     login=username,            \
     password=password       \
    This updates zoneedit, but it only reads the internal IP address assigned by the router, not the router's IP addres....internal is always, where the router IP address changes, so that's the one that I need to have updated to ideas???

    I think I need something like this:
    #use=linksys, fw= # via Linksys's interne$
    I have AT&T Yahoo DSL, and am using the 2Wire Box as the router, so I don't know how to get the current IP address from it...

    If anyone has any suggestions I'd really appreciate it...
