Dynamic DNS
« on: April 29, 2014, 06:13:35 AM »

I have just set up a domain on he.net and am trying to get dynamic dns working.

I have set up the 'A' records and generated a key and installed ddclient on my mac os x server 10.9.2. ddclient is obtaining the correct dynamic IP address but in the console log it says:

Code: [Select]
29/04/2014 13:55:55.744 ddclient[18921][19343]: WARNING:   last updated <never> but last attempt on Tue Apr 29 13:55:38 2014 failed.

Please can someone confirm that I have the correct items in the ddclient.conf file. I have set the login as the name of the 'A' record and the password as the generated key and also specified the domain name in the config file as well. Is this correct?

Many thanks

Paul

After a few hours, I am making progress but it still is not working. I think I now have the ddclient.conf set up correctly as follows:

Code: [Select]
daemon=300
syslog=yes
cache=/var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache
pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid
use=web, web=dyndns
protocol=dyndns2
server=dyn.dns.he.net
login=www.xxxxxxxxx.com, password=password
data.xxxxxxxxx.com, home.xxxxxxxxx.com, cloud.xxxxxxxxx.com

But, the updates are still not working. This is the output from ddclient -force -verbose:

Does anyone have any ideas how to get this working properly.

Many Thanks

That tells me that dyndns is blocking you. Most likely it's because you were trying to update too many times in a short period. They should have sent you an email concerning it. I'd check the link they reference though for more information.

Since you munged your hostnames, I'm assuming there's one for each of them in the results.

Have a great day.:)

Hi Patrick

Thank you for your response.

I gave up getting it to work and wrote my own script to check the dynamic ip address and update he.net servers.

Regards
