Dynamic DNS support for other vendors
« on: January 26, 2010, 05:01:32 pm »
I am new to the list. I am looking for some information on what program/script/config file needs to be tweaked in order to support a new Dynamic DNS vendor. In particular I am looking to support ChangeIP.COM which is my current vendor. If someone could point me to the script, I can probably make the changes I need....but which script? I would be more than happy to give back to the group any changes that I make. If this topic has already been addressed, please point me there. Thanks.

Your best best is to follow the trail from the PHP page that allows you to set such things.  It should lead you directly to an answer.  The web admin PHP code isn't terribly hard to read.

I didn't use the lmce admin for dynamic dns. It can be configured in your router, instead.
After that, remember to setup https access (see wiki at http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/HTTPS).

I find that my router (Linksys WRT) is completely unreliable at updating DDNS.  Using LinuxMCE to do it, it's worked 100% of the time.  You would think the router would be more reliable since it KNOWS when the external IP has changed, but that doesn't seem to be what happens in my case...
