## Dynamic DNS hosts go here #your-dynamic-host.dyndns.org,another-dynamic-host.## Static DNS hosts go here #static=yes, your-static-host.dyndns.org,another-static-host.## Dyn Standard DNS hosts go here #custom=yes, your-domain.top-level,your-other-domain.top-level # Basic configuration file for ddclient # # /etc/daemon=600 cache=/tmp/ddclient.cache pid=/var/run/use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.com/, web-skip='IP Address' login=your-username password=your-password protocol=dyndns2 server=members.wildcard=YES example.custom=yes, Here is a third example which shows ddclient configured to get it’s IP address from the status page provided by a router.

Note that here we’ve set the daemon sleep period to 60 seconds (the smallest value ddclient accept as a sleep value).

An example would be: Actual HTTP request should look like following fragment.

Here is a basic template which provides the various options available.

daemon=600 # check every 600 seconds syslog=yes # log update msgs to syslog mail=root # mail all msgs to root mail-failure=root # mail failed update msgs to root pid=/var/run/# record PID in file.

cache=/tmp/ddclient.cache # Cache file ### Select one of these options to determine your IP address ## via hardware interface (if you don't have a router/firewall) #use=if, if=eth0 ## via our Check IP server #use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.com/, web-skip='IP Address' ## from the status page for a linksys router/firewall #use=linksys, fw=linksys, fw-login=admin, fw-password=admin ## from a FW status page #fw-login=admin, fw-password=XXXXXX #use=fw, fw=192.168.1.254/status.htm, fw-skip='IP Address' ## Enter your Dyn username and password here #login=your-login # your Dyn username #password=your-password # your Dyn password ## This section requires no changes unless you need to set a default proxy server ## or you need to bypass your proxy server (because it interferes with the updates) protocol=dyndns2 # default protocol server=members.# default server #server=members.dyndns.org:8245 # default server (bypassing proxies) #proxy=fasthttp.sympatico.ca:80 # default proxy ## Default options for Dynamic/Static DNS Hosts #mx= # default MX host (leave undefined by default) #backupmx=NO # MX host is primary MX?

(leave undefined by default) wildcard=YES # add wildcard CNAME?

Download: The most recent version of ddclient should always be available here.
