Hey there fellow members,

Does anyone know if there is any Free DNS service provider left that does not require a client to run in the background? For as infrequent that I would use it, if I have to I am willing to pay for it. I'm just doing my Home Work before I open my Wallet. It would be used on Camera’s and an ATA…..

If you mean DDNS service, try DNS-O-Matic from OpenDNS. It forwards data to several other DDNS services, so if you update the DNS-O-Matic records once in a while (in a few weeks), it transmits the changes to other DDNS services.

Of course, you'd still have to update the records when they change, otherwise it cannot know that your IP has changed.

Thank you slobodan

Yes DDNS is what I'am asking about. I will look at this. Hopefuly they do not require a Client running in the background of the IP location to keep it up to date.

Thanx

You still need to set up DDWRT the update dnsomatic. I have it running on my router and it works great.

I noticed that they are not one of the chosen in the drop down. Possibly I'm running an older version of ddwrt?

There is no specific option for DNS-O-Matic, instead you select custom and use these parameters:

I’m having a difficult time trying to locate in DNS-O-Matic where you create your account with out running a client.

Here is what I'm looking for;

I want to be able to inform opendns of my DDNS provider host name, and let opendns automatically add new ip-addresses to my network. I need dns filtering without any software program to provide new network ip-addresses to opendns, except for firmware in a router or gateway. I can't have a dedicated computer, running 24 hours a day just to do this one thing.

Even if there is a laps of 1 to 10 minutes, when an occasional ip address change occurs, this would only impact filtering. So occasionally, the filter might not work, but would work the vast majority of time. And individuals attempting to access sites otherwise filtered would never know when such a time period was.

Alternatively, opendns could provide the ddns service more directly. Also they could push for updating the design of ddns services in firmware, so that every time there is a "on demand" request for a new ip address, since a router or gateway has set idle for too long, that the ddns function updates the new ip address immediately without waiting for the normal update frequency.

I need the opendns filtering to work regardless of who's computer is accessing the internet through the one router/gateway, without a dedicated extra computer whos sole purpose is to update ip address (to add network) with opendns. Such an extra computer is extremely expensive overhead (the extra computer being an ongoing variable expense daily) for what should be as simple as a ping from a router when there is a new "on demand" connection to isp or a DDNS update (a router being a sunk expense).
