DD client (does it really work)


I have tried off and on for about 2 years to get DD client to work with no success. I was able to build my own website (not a ready made one) a laptop I made work as a server all OK but no luck at all with DD client. What I ask is does it really work. I have a DYNDNS host and web address.

Dynamic DNS has some time problems. My experience was that i could take some 2-5minutes after an address change till my client picked up the new address. Might be my client timeouts, might be the server timeouts. But all in all I had great experience with freedns.afraid.org. Dunno which one you used.

Hello,

Like zhjim I also use freedns.afraid.org and have never had a problem when my WAN changed. My records seemed to update immediately and replicate out..

Rawcous!

So it must work, I use dyndns.info and it is free as I actually pay nothing for the whole set up. My IP does not change very much in a month but change it does. Could you give me any tips please.Thanks for the replies.

Hard to give any tips if we dont know anything about your real experience or problems.
Just some random thoughts here. First and foremost is the client that just has to work. You need to reliably notice that your IP address has changed so the client can inform the server. Depending on your connection you have two options. Either check your external IP once in a while per cron for example (or other means). Or if you have a router that has the dyndns option it self.

I used dyndns with pppoe and had me linux gateway do the update. Just hard to tell when not knowing anything about your setup.
