Tool updating DNS data for dynamic IP addresses
A tool to update dynamic IP addresses typically obtained using DHCP with dynamic DNS services such as changeip.com, duckdns.org or no-ip.com. It makes it possible to access a machine with a fixed name like myhost.duckdns.org even if the ip address changes. ddupdate caches the address, and only attempts the update if the address actually is changed. The tool has a plugin structure with plugins for obtaining the actual address (typically hardware-dependent) and to update it (service depen‐ dent). For supported services, it's a linux-centric, user-friendly and flexible alternative to the ubiquitous ddclient. ddupdate is distributed with systemd support to run at regular intervals, and with NetworkManager templates to run when interfaces goes up or down.
