I use Zoneedit for DNS "hosting". They give great, free service, with additional features at small costs.
For updating my Dynamic IP, I use the DDClient script (supports zoneedit, dyndns.org and many other providers)
A few days ago (according to my logs: 30/05/08 18:15:00 UTC) DDClient stopped updating my IP in Zoneedit. Apparently Zoneedit changed the URL, and ddclient.conf should be updated accordingly:
It probably hurt many users.. I hope I didn't lose too many emails =)
Update: I notified ddclient developers and it was fixed (in SVN only currently).
Update 2: According to wimpunk (ddclient developer), the "server=www.zoneedit.com" can be simply commented-out from ddclient.conf (it's an optional parameter!); when commented-out, default already uses the correct address (dynamic.zoneedit.com), even in 3.7.3 or earlier.
Yeah, the service is great, I just hope they could advise when they change stuff.
Thank you I Just spent the last hour trying to find out why ddclient wasn't working. I find it hard to believe that they didn't send out any prior email to let there users know before hand
For Zoneedit's side I'd say that they DID put a "Redirect" which, on theory, was supposed to make a smooth change.. Maybe it's also ddclient's fault for not following the redirect.
Nice find! I did a packet capture and noticed that it was sending a redirect, but didn't make the logic leap and change my config to reflect that!
+1 from me. Thanks for the info.
Excellent. I had two systems, one started this about two weeks ago, and the other didn't start acting up until today. changing the hostname was a charm.
Sheesh, thanks for this info. Been pulling my hair out for the last month! Guess I should have googled sooner.
yeah i noticed the redirect trying to go throught but googled around and found this page. did the trick for me too
Thanks. U help me save much time.
By the way, ddclient has a debug option:
ddclient -daemon=0 -noquiet -debug -verbose
Running it that way it shows you exactly what is going on.
About ZoneEdit\'s service, it\'s free, so why complain ;-).
