I have attempted to setup dynamic dns

 

I setup an account on FREEDNS (freedns.afraid.org)

 

Service name :  FREEDNS (selected from drop down)

Domain : xxxxxx.chickenkiller.com

User name : <that as setup on freedns>

Password : <that as setup on freedns>

 

However I get the error when I attempt to save the settings:

 

DDNS not ready .or. DDNS turn off .or. WAN not ready.

 

I puit in a fake IP  checked pinging xxxxxx.chickenkiller.com and the address shows my fake address but it doesnt change to router proper address.

 

I have seen a few threads but no answers

Re: DDNS not ready .or. DDNS turn off .or. WAN not ready.

have you tried the instructions at Send IP changes to DNS automatically with your router (afraid.org)

Note: the Hostname part in Step 2

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

HI, That looks like what I am doing wrong. Problem is it makes no sense to me. I says to copy this link

 

http://[USERNAME]:[PASSWORD]@freedns.afraid.org/nic/update?hostname=[DOMAIN]&myip=[IP]

 

but the sample to enter into the router looks like this

 

zeus.afraid.org,AFFEEFFFCCDDEEEFFFCC==)

 

confused...

 

should it just be

 

xxxxx.chickenkiller.com,(myIP) ?

It should be the zeus.afraid.org,xxxxx

If you right click on the "Direct Link" link at the bottom of the page, you will get something like https://freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/update.php?c0ptQVhDdjBhZHZhRmFTGExpcXE6MTk5NDc5MDU=

 

Copy everything after the ? and put it after the zeus.afraid.org, so you would get something like

zeus.afraid.org,c0ptQVhDdjBhZHZhRmFTGExpcXE6MTk5NDc5MDU=
