Dynamic DNS problem in China [3322.org Blocked Since 2009-10-05]
 
I have been running a webserver [and other services] for personal use and have been using 3322.org [A Chinese dynamic DNS update service with an un-clean reputation:) ] for updating my dynamic IP address. This is due to the fact that most popular dynamic IP update services (such as dynDNS are BLOCKED in China)

All has been fine for the last 4 years, but alas it seems 3322.org is now blocked from propagating the DNS outward (the client still works) I guess the great firewall has kicked in due to some content hosted...

I have available a webserver based in US (see here; http://www.psychz.net/shared_hosting...d_hosting.html) using Linux and CPanel

And am hoping that this vibrant community can suggest some software that I could use to update my dynamic IP address to a subdomain (eg private.mysite.com) both at the webserver and the client end (my computer)

OR some other alternative method/s?!

"Simple and stable"

I am using WinXP-SP3 as the client/s

Hope this is sufficient information and that you take the time to write if you know of something AND that it will help others in the same sticky situation as myself.

Cheers all!

Try a Windows forum, where they would have knowledge of such software. Or you could move your sites to a different country, since anything further upstream from whoever you pick in China, is still stuck in the same situation.

TBOne,


Noted, however the only reason the _Client_ is on WinXp is that it is the only platform supported by 3322's software.

What I am after is a solution something like the following:

Provide my own DNS updating _server_ at the webhost end, then use the 3 Clients 2x ubuntu, 1x WinXp (but changeable to ubuntu if needed) to update to the server end.

so; Clients update IP addy to Server then hostname [subdomain] within the webhost point to IP addy of clients....


So in reality it would be useful to have the client software multi platform, but not 100% needed as I can change if needed.

Perhaps this is not a true Networking question, and perhaps it is too complex to be able to do.

the subdomain may make it more difficult, in this case I may need to purchase several more real domain names, then the remaining problem is how to point to them.

Another thought I have had is purchasing VPN access to do this, but I am afraid it may break other things....

Suggestions needed!

Simon
