    How to configure ddclient for updateDNS.tk?

    I would like to be able to use Transmission's Web Client to manage my torrents from afar. I have a dynamic IP, however, and no-ip was simply not going to work for me. I decided to use .tk instead.

    I'm trying to use this service to automatically update my IP address, but I think that there's something wrong with the way I've configured Ddclient. It doesn't seem to be doing anything.

    I've configured my /etc/ddclient.conf file as explained here, and here it is. Tell me if I'm doing anything wrong:
    Code:
    # Configuration file for ddclient generated by debconf
    #
    # /etc/ddclient.conf
    
    daemon=300
    ssl=no
    protocol=dyndns2
    use=if, if=wlan0
    server=updatedns.tk
    login=my_email
    password=my_password
    jamestheawesomedude.tk
    when I run ddclient at a terminal, it appears to do nothing. It just exits. What do I need to do? I don't see any daemon running (in the System Monitor,) and my IP didn't update at dot.tk.
