DDclient seems to update incorrectly


Hi,

I'm using Centos 3 and I have configured my ddclient to update my namecheap domain thetunetofunkytown.net. I have been able to do this before, but this time it is not working correctly. When I force ddclient to update, it works, but with what seems to be an incorrect address. When I ping this domain from outside my network it resolve to a different address than the one that ddclient updated. I'm not sure how to go about fixing this.

Here is my ddclient.conf:
Code:
daemon=300
syslog=yes  
mail=my email address                            
mail-failure=root                       
pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid
ssl=yes                                 


##
## NameCheap (namecheap.com)
##
 protocol=namecheap
 server=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com
 login=thetunetofunkytown.net
 password=***Password from Namecheap****
 thetunetofunkytown.net
Thanks

Cool Issue Solved

I changed the last line of ddclient.conf to "@" and then I fixed some settings with my dynamic dns provider. After all that, ddclient seems to update just fine and I can ssh remotely.


Thanks
