    FreeDNS DDClient Config Help

    How do you configure DDClient to use the FREEDNS service provided by afraid.org?

    There's a short snippet of info here:

    http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Dynamic_DNS

    Does this look like the proper config I'd need?

    Code:
    # Configuration file for ddclient generated by debconf
    #
    # /etc/ddclient.conf
    
    protocol=freedns
    login=xxx
    password='xxx'
    webehostin.com,ftp.webehostin.com,mail.webehostin.com,ns5.webehostin.com,ns6.webehostin.com,www.webehostin.com
    Is there anything else I need to change? Does anyone have a working config for ddclient using freedns.afraid.org?

    Or, should it be more like this:

    Code:
    # Configuration file for ddclient generated by debconf
    #
    # /etc/ddclient.conf
    
    protocol=freedns
    use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.com, web-skip='IP Address'
    login=xxx
    password='xxx'
    webehostin.com,ftp.webehostin.com,mail.webehostin.com,ns5.webehostin.com,ns6.webehostin.com,www.webehostin.com

    I don't see any protocol called freedns. Check this.

    Regards.

    Right, but it even states:

    This is an incomplete list of the services supported by ddclient. If your favourite dynamic dns provider isn't here, check the result ddclient --help with the most recent version of ddclient. If it's there, check the patches section on sf.net and if it's really not supported by ddclient you can try to modify ddclient yourself.
    Looks like ever since 3.8.0, freedns is supported. Anyone know how to configure it?

    I'm not sure if you got this working, i did some digging around and found this

    http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Dynamic_DNS

    Scroll all the way to the bottom where they explain that the change to add FreeDNS is recent like you mentioned and give you a config sample. Only way to see it update is to get your ISP to release a new IP to you.

    Hope it helps!
