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
mail=x@y.com                     # 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)
##
server=www.zoneedit.com
protocol=zoneedit1
login=<user>
password='<pwd>'
<name>.com,www.<name>.com,beta.<name>.com


...running the command:

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

yields:

0

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 12.34.56.17; 15 days since last update on Thu May 29 11:36:53 2008.

Stumped.  Any suggestions?

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.

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

use=web, web=http://www.zoneedit.com/checkip.html, web-skip='Current IP Address:'
server=dynamic.zoneedit.com
