Box 7330) using the infos for the dynamic IP update which I gathered searching the internet and tried the following configurations: Config 1: Update-URL: updates.dnsomatic.com/nic/update?
myip=Domainname: dnsomatic Username: [my DNS-O-Matic username]Password: [my DNS-O-Matic password] with this config the IP update works (can be seen on DNS-O-Matic and Open DNS) but my router shows this in the log:"Dynamic DNS-Fehler: Der angegebene Domainname kann trotz erfolgreicher Aktualisierung nicht aufgelöst werden"which means "Although update was successful the domain name could not be resolved". The "domainname" entry in the router is the customer URL from the dynamic DNS provider which makes the router available from external, like "myusername.dyndns.org".
Name Translation is the process of relating a name (like ' to an IP address (like '74.1') so that a website (or other service) on a computer can be accessed using an easily remembered name, rather than the IP address number of the computer.
Name Translation is implemented via a distributed database known as the Domain Name System.
These Dynamic DNS services allow the user to choose a hostname and set an initial IP address to correspond to that hostname.
The software utility then periodically checks for a change to the computer's IP address, and when a new IP address is discovered, it updates the Dynamic DNS database to reflect that change.
First, in the global portion: requests an address via dhcp, the dhcp server will tell the dns server.Some provider offer to update multiple host within one update request. If you found a DDNS provider not listed or with additional IPv6 support or with changed update config 'service' 'myddns' option 'service_name' 'example.org' option 'enabled' '1' option 'domain' 'yourhost.example.org' option 'username' 'your_username' option 'password' 'your_password' option 'interface' 'wan' option 'ip_source' 'network' option 'ip_network' 'wan'uci set ddns.myddns.service_name="ddnsprovider.com" # only use names listed in /usr/lib/ddns/services # or /usr/lib/ddns/services_ipv6 (since CC 15.05) uci set ddns.myddns.domain="host.yourdomain.net" uci set ddns.myddns.username="your_user_name" uci set ddns.myddns.password="[email protected]" uci set ddns.myddns.interface="wan" # network interface that should start this configuration/section uci set ddns.myddns.enabled="1" uci commit ddns # don't forget this, otherwise data not written to configuration fileuci set ddns.newddns="service" uci set ddns.newddns.service_name="ddnsprovider.com" # only use names listed in /usr/lib/ddns/services # or /usr/lib/ddns/services_ipv6 (since CC 15.05) uci set ddns.newddns.domain="host.yourdomain.net" uci set ddns.newddns.username="your_user_name" uci set ddns.newddns.password="[email protected]" uci set ddns.newddns.interface="wan" # network interface that should start this configuration/section uci set ddns.newddns.enabled="1" uci commit ddns # don't forget this, otherwise data not written to configuration fileconfig 'service' 'myddns' ...Every computer attached to the Internet has an IP address.Currently trying to update directly via Open DNS instead of DNS-O-Matic using this config. hostname=homeopendns Username: [my Open DNS username]Password: [my Open DNS password] (where "home" is the name for the registered network associated with my account) With every config I get this error described below config 1) every 30 minutes - which seems to be the interval for the router to send an IP address update to a dynamic DNS service.My question now is: what should I use as proper "domainname" in the dynamic DNS settings to use with Open DNS dynamic IP updates?
