I have a router running dd-wrt. I presume this would work with that?

Update: It works! I guess I had to let it process a while. My settings are below for the set-up. As for dd-wrt on my router, these are the settings:

DDNS Service
User Name: guest [apparently you don't need to input the user name or password for afraid.org--maybe because of the hash info?]
Password: guest
Host Name: mydomain.com, [the hash information from freedns.afraid.org (see below)]
Do not use external ip checked: "No" selected.

hash info: login your account at afraid.org, click on Dynamic DNS, click on the Direct URL link, and copy everything after the "update.php?" in the address field of your browser:

»freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/updat···OTI0NzU=

Basically, this is the hash information: "VUNXVDG2MzFVMVVBQUdKNlJnMEFBQUFoOjgwOTI0NzU="

so it should look like:

Host Name: mydomain.com, VUNXVDG2MzFVMVVBQUdKNlJnMEFBQUFoOjgwOTI0NzU=

note that it needs to include EVERYTHING for me, it include the "=".

-----EARLIER POST--------------------------------------

Got the invite, and it looks like I'm set-up. However, I see that my ip address is being shown as afraid.org, which is the free ddns service I'm using.

My settings:

Dynamic IP: (checked)
IP from this DNS: XXXXX.com [yes, I put my correct domain here.]
Unique number for dynamic DNS client: XXXXXX [yes, I put my correct 6 digit number here.]

----------
The "Monitor this STATIC IP:" field is what shows the afraid.org IP address:

72.8.150.30

I verified that afraid.org has my correct DDNS IP address, and I verified that I am pingable by going to this site:

»www.kloth.net/services/ping.php

and pinged my domain name (XXXXX.com) and, just for kicks, my dynamic IP.

Anyone have any ideas? Been scratching my head and looking for a solution for about an hour now...

Thank you!

One question, I put in the DNS server as 24.196.64.53 to start monitoring. Is this the correct setting for Charter?

Dyn.com wants to make me sign up for a free trial to set up my service there. Is there any way around this? Sorry, still new at all of this.

I think I got it figured out. I signed up for a No-IP account and it seems to be resolving, just don't have any data yet. Thanks for the help.

I get a weekly report but it never has any relevant information on it. Is it possible to check my email address (xxxxxx@charter.net) and see it that's a report different from what is offered here. I signed up for it on this website.

Have you checked your graphs here? »/testhistory?view=31

Unfortunately, we have no way to check your email address.

Speaking of your email address, for privacy and anti-spam purposes, I edited out of your post.

Hi skj, I just came back to this thread and saw your reply. I checked the testhistory graphs, but after alphabetizing the Palo Alto, Ca choice, and the NY choice, couldn't find anything under my user name.

The report I receive periodically always has this statement:

********** EMPTY REPORT *********
You selected dynamic IP, but we are not receiving
IP updates for it yet.
===================================

Any clues from this?

John

Since you indicated you have a dynamic IP, if your IP address has changed than the monitor will not be able to receive any data. You would have to enter in your new IP address.

The DNS setting is our current IP address? Will it affect anything if I left that portion blank?
