Setting up DDNS

I have an LH1000 modem/router and trying to set up DDNS. The first step I did was in Services > Dynamic DDNS. In the dropdown I selected:

 

DYNDNS (Dropdown)

dynu.com

<username>
<password>

Following SAVE, it says:

 

DDNS registration status [ Fail: dynu.com: The hostname specified does not exist. ]

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

This error could be due to enter the wrong domain. If you address is http://mydomain.com then enter mydomain in the domain field.

I was under the impression it was verifying the DDSN diversion source but your saying it wants my address?

Yes it wants the address you set up with DYNDNS

And that’s what I gave it. So, has DYNU not made this URL available to the web? I’ll check that out.

Just noticed I missed word in my first reply. Should be

 

"This error could be due to enter the wrong domain. If you address is http://mydomain.com then enter mydomain.com in the domain field"

I recently contacted the "platinum" support team at Telstra and they've informed me that the Gen2 (LH1000) doesn't support DDNS. Not sure if this is true or not, but they've offered to send me the Gen1 modem that does support this function. 

 

Does this sound right?

 

Meanwhile I plugged an old router (flashed with DDWRT) in switch mode which happily performs my DDNS for me and offers extra switch ports behind my tv.  

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
