Ddclient not updating zoneedit
What do you have for the server and protocol variables in your config?_________________Search | Read | Answer | Report | Strip Copyright 2001-2017 Gentoo Foundation, Inc.The first step is to create a convenience script for performing regular DNS updates, using the private key you just generated.Here is my do-nsupdate script: server is the nameserver to which updates will be sent. The update lines specify the changes to be made to one or more DNS records.Introduced in BIND version 8 and refined in BIND version 9, the nsupdate utility provides the system administrator or casual user with a quick and painless method of updating a DNS zone, adding or deleting any type of DNS record the name server supports.This article describes how to setup dynamic DNS, and provides some examples of use.Designed by Kyle Manna © 2003; Style derived from original sub Silver theme.
For this specific case, HMAC-MD5, the public and private keys are the same. The contents of the public key (you give this to your DNS administrator) looks like (again, the public and private keys are the same for HMAC-MD5) Store the private key in a secure location.
The mtime 1290061292 is "Thu GMT" here but in your timezone it's going to be "Wed Nov 17 2010", you can test it with this command: So it is picking up that date from the /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache file, but the problem is that it's not updating the cache's mtime.
Looking through the code it should update the mtime when it successfully updates the IP but that should also update the status which is set to noconnect (which is the default when it detects than an update is required).
nsupdate is a fantastic little utility that enable quick and secure DNS zone updates.
Setup is quick and painless, and use is fairly intuitive for anyone remotely familiar with DNS, and skilled enough to admin their own Linux system. This key is created by running the dnssec-keygen utility.
