DynamicDNS

Updating multiple Dynamic DNS domain names using ddclient on Linux in conjunction with dnsomatic.com.

  1. Set up an account at dnsomatic.com

    /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf
    

    daemon=300                              # check every 300 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/ddclient.pid               # record PID in file.
    ssl=yes                                 # use ssl-support.  Works with
                                            # ssl-library
    use=web, web=myip.dnsomatic.com
    server=updates.dnsomatic.com
    protocol=dyndns2
    login=dnsomatic_user
    password=dnsomatic_password
    all.dnsomatic.com
    

    • Note that dnsomatic_user and dnsomatic_password are allowed to be a valid OpenDNS authentication login and password.
    • Service Notes
      • DynDNS
        • The User ID IS NOT an e-mail address with domain. The @domain portion of the account e-mail address is not entered.
        • The Host/Identifier is the full domain to update.
  2. Start the ddclient.

    # service ddclient restart
    
  3. If services at dnsomatic.com do not get updates, it might be necessary to wipe the ddclient.cache file and restart ddclient.

    # cd /var/cache/ddclient
    # >ddclient.cache
    # service ddclient restart
