so I was trying to find a Dynamic IP updater to run on the Pi this initially works won't know until I get a new IP but when I ran setup it changed my IP address

The choices aren't great for the free domains they give you but it's all free and appears to be working on my PI

.publicvm.com
.linkpc.net

To install the deb package has issues

Go here to sign up and get a free domain http://www.dnsexit.com/

SSH or login to Pi

Code: Select all
wget http://downloads.dnsexit.com/ipUpdate-1.6-2.tar.gz
tar xzvf ipUpdate-1.6-2.tar.gz
sudo ./setup.pl


It asks for username, password gives options for domain you can have more than one if you do enter 0 1 you don't have to type out the domain (wasn't sure when I went though it)

Asks if you want to run as daemon choose yes to run on reboot (rebooted router and tested it updated my IP on their servers)

This will update your IP on their servers

run
Code: Select all
./ipUpdate.pl


To manually update.

Haven't used this client in years so feel free to check reviews.

Also I was wondering what other clients people have gotten to work directly on the PI

By far the simplest, quickest and clearest way ive found to do this is explained in this post and it literally takes seconds.

When I try to install setup.pl, I receive this error message:

I would also suggest this free DDNS that has a TTL as low as 1 second refresh rate! You can't go any faster than that.
It comes with a very basic and simple API all explained in the "API" page here http://www.iprekt.com/?p=api.
