Default Trouble with ddclient

I've been having similar trouble with the ipUpdate service from
DNSexit.com. I've asked them for help, but they won't even answer your
email unless you're a paying customer. I've found that the central
script, /usr/sbin/ipUpdate.py, works fine, so I just added it to
/etc/rc.d/rc.local to make sure it gets executed at boot. Not the best
solution, but better than nothing.

[Please don't top-post on this list. See the Guidelines]

Thanks but I think I've identified the possible culprit. Turns out my
router is also updating DynDNS, so the problem may in fact be there. I
still don't see why this should cause ddclient to fail, but it may be
that the router blocks access to the DynDNS server.

If that isn't the cause, I'll follow up later.

Hi Patrick, I don't know if this is relevant to your issue - and I am at
work at the moment without the time to think this through properly so I
apologise if I am wasting bandwidth...

There have been a few bugs relating to ddclient, notably these two [1][2],
which related to the fact that ddclient did not have Native systemd
service file. A fix for this has recently been released. It may be that
your existing configuration has been borked by this update if you did not
notice it going through...

It may be unrelated your problem though and, as you say, it may just be
your router - but perhaps worth a look....

Regards

Mark

Thanks Mark. I'm already using 3.8.1-1 but I don't see a systemd file.
In fact none is listed in the rpm catalogue. This appears to contradict
the BZ discussion as far as I understand it.

I'll take another look and maybe comment on BZ.
