    DDCLIENT With dyndns

    So I am Running ubuntu (without a GUI), I have a dyndns account with dynamic IP host. I need ddclient to run evry 2 hours and update my dyndns account with my current web IP. Im on a dynamic Ip so it changes evry DHCP request or router restart.

    Any Help would be appreciateed.

    Re: DDCLIENT With dyndns

    If you cannot configure the router to talk to dyndns directly then you can configure ddclient to retrieve your router's public IP

    For example on my router (which has local IP 192.168.0.1, ddclient can retrieve the public IP with the following conf.
    adapt to your router access

    /etc/ddclient.conf

    pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid
    protocol=dyndns2
    fw-login=your-router-user, fw-password=your-router-user-password
    use=fw, fw=192.168.0.1/info.html, fw-skip='ppp_8_35_1' ### the public IP is next to the ppp_8_35_1 field, adapt with where your public IP can be found and on what page###
    server=members.dyndns.org
    login=your-dyndns-login
    password='your-dyndns-password'
