it seems the limit is every few minutes.

they didn't list examples of well behaved scripts, but it seems there might exist scripts for your router if you google around?

The Linux/Unix pppd program has a hook at file "/etc/ppp/ipv6-up".  Maybe this is also called when the IPv6 address changes, as opposed to interface up only.  Your router's version of ppp May have something similar....

Questions & Answers / DDNS updating as a cron job?
Last post by kjalger - December 31, 2023, 03:38:27 AM
Background:  My ISP is BT(UK) and very occasionally my IPv6 address changes all on its own.  As my Asus router seems to monitor ppp0 for updates and my IPv6 WAN/Gateway address doesn't appear there, an updated IPv6 address on its own does not fire the DDNS update script!
For the moment I've set the DDNS forced update to once per day (21 days by default) just using the router WebUI (simplest way - and it's a rare event).  But I have considered (and very briefly did) set the router ddns-start script to fire regularly using a cron job.
I'm very appreciative of HE providing this service at no cost to users, and don't want to fall foul of abusing the service.  So I wondered what the guidance on how often it is sensible to fire off a ddns update?

I'm "guessing" that HE is not working on it more than forwarding the complaint to the users, hoping that the few accounts that perhaps were actually causing problems take steps to correct themselves. And then the big machine in the sky might stop the captchas... Uh.

I've had to stop using the HE IPv6 Tunnel Broker at home for now.

Has HE been working with Google on this?  I have a couple of customers using 6in4 and this is very annoying.  Why can't Google see the benefits of this.

Edit: Still not working of December 27th.  Uggg.

We began getting goog recaptchas maybe a week ago. Have one routed /64 from the allocated /48 network in use at home. And... just now I got a abuse complaint from HE, forwarding a goog complaint stating "We are seeing automated scraping of Google Web Search from a large number of your IPs/VMs.". No, none such going on.

iperf3 was designed to only allow a single connection to the service, in order to have it have the maximum bandwidth available for a test, and not compete with other connections.  If you're seeing connection refused, it means someone else is currently using the service.

You're listed at https://iperf.fr/iperf-servers.php as running one.  And I'd say HE is the most recognizable and trusted name on that list.

But the iperf3 server is down right now I think:
root@UR:~# iperf3 -c iperf.he.net
iperf3: error - unable to connect to server: Connection refused

Has it been replaced with something newer/better?

This forum is listed as the contact link on iperf.fr, so I'm reaching out this way.
