OpenDNS ddclient Config

by Scott, Revised on June 11, 2011 (Linux)

OpenDNS has an update client for windows, but for linux ddclient needs to be used. The following config works for me. Requires Debian packages ddclient and libio-socket-ssl-perl.

/etc/ddclinet.conf

ssl=yes
pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid
protocol=dyndns2
use=web, web=whatismyip.org
server=updates.opendns.com
login=user_login
password='user_login_password'
user_login_network
