I've been running dynamic DNS updates perfectly for a year with ddclient and zoneedit.com. 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
firstname.lastname@example.org # mail all msgs to root
pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid # record PID in file.
# Another d-link nightmare, just get the IP from the web.
use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.org/, web-skip='Current IP Address: '
## ZoneEdit (zoneedit.com)
...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 zoneedit.com.
WARNING: forcing update of www.<name>.com from 12..34.56.85 to 188.8.131.52; 15 days since last update on Thu May 29 11:36:53 2008.
Stumped. Any suggestions?
