Debian ddclient not updating
Next, navigate to "All host records" add a DNS A record for your domain (use the @ symbol for this), or subdomain.Use the dummy IP address for now, the first time we run ddclient this will be updated to your actual Wide Area Network (WAN) IP address.I have a question about the last paragraph of your tutorial on ddclient.I think you refer here to the habit of free DNS suppliers (like no-ip in my case) to remove your hosts if there has been no update on that host for over a month (for example).Since some ISPs seem to only allocate new IP addresses when the modem is power cycled, and some dynamic DNS providers will time out if you don't update the record in a while, there is one thing left to do - we need to add a cron job to force an update weekly, just in case.Choose whether you want to force an update daily or weekly, and then create a file called ddclient in the relevant directory, e.g.This tutorial will show you how to configure ddclient on Raspbian and Ubuntu.Many tutorials don't explain what to do if your server is behind a router, but this one will.
Use this command to install ddclient: If you're not using namecheap, then this section will be different, but the concept is the same regardless of DNS provider.
They're not going to ban people for rebooting their servers every week, so running a weekly job is probably fine. Thanks for the comment :) Sam When running sudo ddclient -debug -verbose -noquiet I get the following at the bottom: DEBUG: get_ip: using ip, ip reports WARNING: unable to determine IP address Here is my /etc/# Configuration file for ddclient generated by debconf # # /etc/ssl=yes protocol=namecheap server=dynamicdns.login=password=mypassword mysubdomain Any ideas what I am doing wrong? I talked to Name Cheap and they advised I buy a SSL.
I've went through all the steps to install my .crt's and but still the same output. l had that package installed, installed ddclient, and my config looks good but it only connects to HTTP. ssl=yes protocol=namecheap use=web, web=dynamicdns.park-your-domain.com/getip server=dynamicdns.login=password='password' subdomain I'm Having the same problem.
You can tell ddclient to use this method by using this line: to ignore IP addresses before the string "foo" if necessary..
Remember how I said anyone with your dynamic dns password can change your DNS records?
