I am pulling my hair out trying to find a dynamic dns client for mac os x. I am at a total loss. Here are what i've done so far:
Enabling Dynamic DNS:
My Account>Manage Domains>adashw.com(clicked on my domain name)>Dynamic DNS>checked enable>clicked Save Changes
All Host Records>under Sub-Domain Settings (settings below)>Save Changes
news | 127.0.0.1 | A (Address) | n/a | 60
So all my settings with Namecheap are good. But it's trying to find a dynamic dns client for Mac OS X that works with namecheap that is a pain in the butt.
I have found ddclient (http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/ddclient/wiki).
I installed the ddclient perl script to /usr/sbin/
I then created a config fine in /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf
This is what my config file looks like:
- Code: Select all
## NameCheap (namecheap.com)
login=ABC (username I login with at namecheap.com)
password=XYZ (the password that the Namecheap.com Dynamic DNS gave me)
I then ran the perl script in Terminal using "/usr/sbin/ddclient -daemon 300 -syslog"
Although it's still not updating the DNS. I keep checking All Host Records on my Namecheap domain.
Any suggestions on A) How to get this ddclient to work or B) Another Mac OS X compatible client that will work?
