Dynamic DNS
Dear all

Does anyone know how to provide dynamic dns service?

That is, clients can match their IP to a certain domain via web to a dns server.

Are you asking about

pyfsapple 01-17-2003 07:01 PM does provide dynamic dns service, but I am looking for how to provide dynamic dns service for my clients.

Anyway, thank you! :)

You mean provide dynamic DNS for your internal network? Install BIND and add this line in the config: allow-updates;

I think that is the correct syntax, I haven't looked at the config lately, but it works easily. I've installed several BIND servers with this option and it works flawlessly.

Thanks, c4_4ya.

My OS is RedHat Linux and I simply and currently use bind 9 in my DNS server.

If you try to search "provide dynamic dns", there will be hundred thousands of websites, which are mainly discuss on they can help you to change your ip addr dynamically.

I want to provide these kind of services.
For example, my clients, they can change their ip-dns mapping by themselves (of course, with authentication) via web-based application.

Your reply is appreciated.

It seems that gnuDIP would do the job you want. It apparently has a web interface as well as clients for unix and windows.

Yeah, you got the point, ggm.

I have found this before. I will later work on studying the strategy of it, and modify it or write one myself.
