stumped - dynamic DNS stopped working - ddclient and

I've been running dynamic DNS updates perfectly for a year with ddclient and  Last week, it just stopped updating - no changes on our server.

The config /etc/ddclient.conf:

daemon=300                              # check every 300 seconds
syslog=yes                              # log update msgs to syslog                     # mail all msgs to root
pid=/var/run/       # record PID in file.
# Another d-link nightmare, just get the IP from the web.
use=web,, web-skip='Current IP Address: '
## ZoneEdit (

...running the command:

sudo ddclient -force -file /etc/ddclient.conf ; echo $?



I get an email stating that the ip was forced but nothing changes at

WARNING:  forcing update of www.<name>.com from 12..34.56.85 to; 15 days since last update on Thu May 29 11:36:53 2008.

Stumped.  Any suggestions?

Ok, found the solution...zoneedit changed their servers so it would seem.  Updated the following entries and so far so good:

use=web, web=, web-skip='Current IP Address:'

I'm having the same problem and posed the question as an email issue.  No solution yet, as no one has been able to understand the problem, it seems.
