Re: [bug] Line Monitor Dynamic IP Not Updating

said by mjf:

DYNSITE has updated my dynamic IP address twice now. So it appears to be working now.

The built-in DDNS client in my Netopia router has never stopped working with the DynDNS service. The problem is that the DSLR monitors no longer seem to be able to work with a DynDNS hostname. I have reset it to stop using the "static IP" status that it got after the site restore, and several days later after it was obvious that did not work, I deleted that monitor and created a new one (which still does not work).

Here is proof that the DynDNS hostname is resolving and that it is pingable:

C:\>nslookup windcrest.dyndns-office.com
Server:  dcs-srv.dcs-net
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    windcrest.dyndns-office.com
C:\>ping windcrest.dyndns-office.com

About 30 minutes ago I manually entered the current IP address into the line monitor setup, and that works, but it would be a PITA to try to keep up with the frequent IP address changes on that particular (somewhat unstable) DSL circuit.
