Default Dynamic dns updates

Hey guys,

Is there any documentation floating around on clients dynamically updating a DNS servers with thier dynamic ip addresses ?

I.E

Client server on DSL gets dynamic ip. => it updates authorative DNS server with its new IP each time it connects.

You could use a service like DynDNS.org for this. There are some tools out there that you can use on your Linux box to update DynDNS' DNS records whenever your IP address changes.

Default Dynamic DNS

Hi Falco,

I have ddclient running, however i am looking for a solution that will allow me to move my clients domains mx records to point to thier servers by using thier FQDN using my DNS servers.

Hm... I think you have to write your own application to achieve this (or recode ddclient). I don't know of any program that can do what you want...
