ddns service?

mikeyz 1,530 666 March 7, 2016 at 09:58 AM
Looking for a ddns service to use with my security cameras, the external ip keeps changing, so i always have to update my ip address.

Any recommendations?

I used dnsdynamic [dnsdynamic.org] I've had good luck with them. It's free too. Their free VPN service could be better.

DDNS is better but your home router should maintain your ISP's issued IP address for you. I'm curious why yours keeps changing. Confused

Maybe this I can't see it from work

EasyDNS

EasyDNS is more than just free dynamic DNS—if you've ever wanted to manage your own DNS entirely, they're a free service for everyone that will let you do it. You can use EasyDNS to point a hostname at your home IP address, but you can also use it in conjunction with your web host to control your own domains and records without relying on your host to manage them all for you. You can manage as many domains and subdomains as you want down to whatever level of detail you prefer. Set custom records for each, point your domains anywhere you want them to go, and, they've even said they're more than happy to offer free, safe harbor from anyone fleeing the SS DynDNS. Normally all of that power would come with a price, but amazingly, EasyDNS is completely free.

The home router maintains nothing. The ISP changes the ip address on its whim, or often when the modem is rebooted.

Hey,
Is Spinrite v6.00 the latest? It was released in 2010. No new update?

I use noip, but for the free service they force you to login and reregister your domains every month, which gets annoying.

Steve is developing 6.1 & 2 but his SQRL [grc.com]project got in the way. Owners of any previous version of Spinrite [grc.com] will get the updates for free. 6.1 & 6.2 will have a much better utilization of today's hard drive's firmware. 6.1 & 6.2 will use less of the computers hardware/firmware in order to do what it does, bypassing this (stuff) results in a huge step up in speed.

I used to use them too, no issues. I like the simplicity.

Dont know why that is relevant. The ip address can change even if you dont reboot your modem. It varies by ISP/location and other factors.
My point was that the router doesnt "maintain" anything.

I know, its frustrating. You would think that since Steve gets paid for Spinrite it would be his priority but he isn't like most people. Steve can't multitask he concentrates on one thing at a time and he is a perfectionist. Everything Steve does is in machine code he refuses to use a compiler. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Oh probably TMI EEK!, sry probably 6 months.

Of course your right [you wrote router when you meant modem] my router maintains everything like my static routes and my port forwarding/triggering config.

My modem maintains only that which the ISP wants it to maintain and thinking about it I just remembered that I asked comcast to issue me a static IP in about 2009, after checking I see that I still have that static IP which is most excellent.

I wrote router intentionally because that is what you wrote in your post. The router does not "maintain" the ISP issued external ip address.
As far as static ip address, generally ISP's charge a premium for that, so if you are paying for it you are likely wasting your money.
