This tutorial will describe how to install DDclient and configure it to work with www.noip.com
Install the DDclient application from the ReadyNAS application interface found at your nas web address:
This may navigate you to your router but alter the IP Address to that of your ReadyNAS.
Once installed a shared directory "ddclient" will appear in your ReadyNAS network shares:
Within this shared directory create the followig file: "ddclient.conf" and to configure the file to work
with www.noip.com add the following contents to the file:
Replace the obvious placeholder names (USERNAME, PASSWORD, NOIP_REMOTE_ADDRESS) with the credentials for your account with www.noip.com.
daemon=600 ssl=yes use=web, web=ip1.dynupdate.no-ip.com/ protocol=noip, server=dynupdate.no-ip.com, login='USERNAME' password='PASSWORD' NOIP_REMOTE_ADDRESS
Your "ddclient" shared directory should now look like the following:
Before starting the application from the ReadyNAS web interface, SSH into your ReadyNAS and check the
ReadyNAS can communicate correctly with www.noip.com.
This will ensures your "ddclient.conf" file has been configured correctly.
You can debug whether it's working by issuing following command:
root@beast-nas:~# cd /etc/init.d/ root@beast-nas:/etc/init.d# ddclient -daemon=0 -debug -verbose -noquiet
Wait for the service to finish reporting (can take up to 2 minutes).
If no errors are reported then your DDclient is working. To stop the service hit "Ctrl" and "c" (without the quotation marks) and start the service from the ReadyNAS Apps web interface.
If you do receive an error it may be worth looking at the error logs for the DDclient application.
Please note all logs for DDclient are written to the following location:
root@beast-nas:~# ls -la /var/cache/ddclient/
