USING DDCLIENT WITH dhcpcd-1.3.17 If you are using dhcpcd-1.3.17 or thereabouts, you can easily update your Dyn DNS entry automatically every time your lease is obtained or renewed by creating an executable file named: /etc/dhcpc/ie.: cp sample-etc_dhcpc_dhcpcd-eth0/etc/dhcpc/In my case, it is named dhcpcd-eth0and contains the lines: Other DHCP clients may have another method of calling out to programs for updating DNS entries.
Remove the sme7-ddclient first, see instructions below.
=============================================================================== ddclient is a Perl client used to update dynamic DNS entries for accounts on many dynamic DNS services.

This service is useful to anyone who wants to operate a server (web server, mail server, ftp server, irc server etc) connected to the Internet with a dynamic IP or for someone who wants to connect to an office computer or server from a remote location with software such as pc Anywhere. Create your dynamic records by defining your host name(s) and a TTL6.ddclient can be used on servers configured in server gateway mode or in server only mode.Stéphane de Labrusse AKA Stephdl This contrib is the official and maintained version for SME Server 8, some Free or paid services of dynamic dns had been incorporated to the contribs. Use this panel to configure domain records you wish to keep updated with your dynamic IP using the ddclient contrib First you need to create a domain in the server-manager (domains panel) which must match the domain you set with your dynamic dns provider.For example if the domain you made at DTdns is : You have to create a relevant domain with this name.Then go to the panel of "Dynamic clients", choose the domain you made then set your dynamic DNS provider eg (dtdns) and associated credentials to that provider.Many routers have an option to enable dynamic updates.
