I would like to configure an IP updater for OpenDNS.




  1. What packages I need to install?

  2. What configuration is necessary?



I'm not asking about how to include the OpenDNS servers in my /etc/resolv.conf.

After some research I can configure it:




  1. create your account in OpenDns.

  2. install ddclient:




    ddclient is a Perl based client used
    to update DNS entries. This client
    works with all of our services as well
    as services provided by many of our
    competitors.



    sudo apt-get install ddclient




    when it starts to ask for parameters just click next and next ...




Now we have to configure 2 files, open a terminal and type the following :



sudo nano /etc/default/ddclient




# Configuration for ddclient scripts
# Generated from debconf on Mon Aug 2 12:39:39 CEST 2010
#
# /Etc/default/ddclient

# Set to "true" if ddclient run Should Be Every time a new ppp connection is
# Established. This Might Be Useful, if You are using dial-on-demand.
run_ipup = "false"

# Set to "true" if ddclient Should run in daemon mode
# If tis is changed to true, run_ipup Must Be Set to false.
run_daemon = "true"

# Set the time interval Between the updates of the dynamic DNS name in seconds.
# This option only Takes effect if the ddclient runs in daemon mode.
daemon_interval = "300"


now with the other:



sudo nano /etc/ddclient.conf




# #
# # OpenDNS.com account-configuration
# #

ssl = yes
use = web, web = whatismyip.org

server = updates.opendns.com
protocol = dyndns2
login = username in OpenDNS <-----
password = 'key OpenDNS' <----- CHANGE THIS
(Name of the network you set up in OpenDNS) <-----


And configure your DNS as describe JE2Tom in his post.
