ipcop dynamic dns

Version 2.0.2

Coincidental with my move to ipcop v2 was a change of ISP.  This meant that a fixed ip could not be guaranteed, so I needed to look into some form of dynamic dns so that I could access the ipcop remotely if required.

I decided to use ignorelist.com as it seemed a reasonable and free provider.  What I couldn't figure out logically though was the ipcop set-up required.

The trick firstly is to use the ignorelist links to get your wget update command (there's a link at the bottom of your dynamic resources page ie:

rem hostname.ignorelist.com
wget -q --read-timeout=0.0 --waitretry=5 --tries=400 --background http://freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/update.php?Sk9ueGhlaktZFpMeH45yb5y7ne76bn4576vty456b6bw564b6546b45==

armed with this, you populate the ipcop dynamic dns as such:

done.
