Unhappy OpenDNS with DynDNS using inadyn

OpenDNS and dynamic DNS aliases

OpenDNS does not support aliases for dynamic IPs, such as DynDNS or hostnames. We do support dynamic IP updating in OpenDNS accounts.
For OpenDNS, the purpose of dynamic IP updating is to preserve your OpenDNS preferences, if your ISP or network operator changes your IP address. OpenDNS does not provide dynamic DNS for providing your computer with a public Internet address.

that is on there site that does not give me any idea on set this up. say this
--username opendns_username
--password opendns_password
--alias opendns_label_of_network_to_update
--dyndns_server_url /account/ddns.php?
and my code that I have
username     user****
password    pass*****
alias        ******
update_period    60000
do I just put there code at the end?

thank you for your help

Unhappy --secure ???

Well I tried that and it does not secure. but I am still not sure this is the right way to add a 2nd call to inadyn. I like OpenDSN cause it blocks porn and other odd sites. I like Dyndns cause I can get to my computers. I like inadyn because, yum install indyn

Should I try something else. other then indyn?
I should have said I have used inadyn for Dyndns for a while now.
How can I get opendns working?

please reply even if you have a bad answer. I do know about the backup rule. thank you.

W:INADYN:CMD_LINE_OPT: Invalid option name at position 18 ('--secure')
System Fedora 7 SELinux Enabled

OpenDNS and inadyn

You need to use the version of inadyn available from OpenDNS, as we've added SSL support. That is required for OpenDNS dynamic IP updates. It's not in the core. support section has a link which will take you to where you can grab the file.

Then the --secure option will work.

Also, inadyn doesn't support multiple services to update at once. You would need two configuration files, one per service.

Here's what the OpenDNS one might look like

--username opendns_username
--password opendns_password
--alias ******
--update_period 60000
--dyndns_server_url /account/ddns.php?

Then you can run two instances of inadyn by running something like
inadyn --input_file opendns.conf ; inadyn --input_file dyndns.conf

Cool parasites, hijackers

Well I got that working on the kids computer better for them to keep up to date then any one else.
but you did cheat the you may want to rename inadyn. or resubmit it to

it would be cool if OpenDNS block hijacker sites and stuff like that.

adult blocking would be cool if you would do a search for the sites word just in the case I type in the wrong site.


dyndns, inadyn, opendns
