1. Is the latest version of the dyndns automatic updater (4.0.8) compatible with Windows Server 2008 x64?
2. If not, which other freeware automatic DNS/IP updater do you recommend for Windows Server 2008?
3. Any installation issues I should be aware of for either the dyndns or another updater?

    Accepted Solution


    The update client on the DynDNS site ( states that the update client supports Windows Vista. Since Windows Server 2008 is based on the Vista core, there should be no inherent issues installing the client on a Server 2008 machine.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I read that on Dyndns's website, but Server 2008 is 64-bit. The standard Vista is 32-bit, so I am still in the dark with the compatibility of the updater on a 64-bit Windows O/S.

    There are no compatibility issues with Server 2008 x64 and the updater client which I am aware of.

    Ok, thanks. I guess I have to give it a try. Does anybody have used the updater on Server 2008 x64?
