CRON and DNS updates
The Question: What is the best way to install and run an update client that will notify a site of any change to my dynamic ip address on my DSL connection?
I've got a new server running Red Hat Linux 7.3 (Valhalla)
It's a closed system I can only access via telnet.
I have run a ps -aux to see that there is no process CRON running.
I want (or think I want) CRON to help do the job of regularly checking my IP address and reporting it to a dynamic updating service: dtdns.com
dtdns.com has several Linux/Unix update clients on their site and I admit I haven't a clue which one is likely the best.
My other systems are all Windows. I used to run DOS, of course, and ran OS/2 for years and years so I'm not exactly a computer novice. But I'm unfamiliar with Linux to the point I'm thinking of putting it on a partition on my hard drive just to learn the thing!
Thank you for any advice you can offer!
