Dynamic IP adressing with

On advice of a few people i went to in order to find out how I could make a meager network using my dynamic (ever-changing with each new dial-up and login to my isp) ip address. I was looking for a way to update my ip address on the dyndns database everytime i log in without going to the page itself and modifying it each time i connected to the internet.

I downloaded a program called ddns.rpm that is very small (about 60k) and is mainly a script called /etc/ddns.conf

If there is anyone out there who has tried this and got it working succesfully please tell me how you did it on this board or you can email me at

Thanks for the help!
