Dyndns updater not updating ip address

07 Mar

They obviously wont help any further (cant blame them) and they recommend I use their update client.While thus is ok and I get what happened, I still like the idea of my router managing the update and not a PC.It has nothing to do with your account standing at dyndns.And for the record, Dyn DNS dropped the free accounts entirely in the last two weeks or so.Of course I discovered the Actiontec router was not able to update the dyndns, only after manually updating the dyndns entry through dyndns.com's management page was I able to get things working, at least until the public ip address changes again.I called Verizon and they said "our DNS is working fine" and to call actiontec at this number 877-992-3392.Rebooted both devices as well.**Edit 2 - I just checked a 2rd remote device.. Maybe this is heartbleed issues and Dyn DNS is preventing any connections from certain devices? I've been meaning to contact them asking if they have any idea why this is.

I just like having the router as the primary since it's the first to know of an actual ip change. I have a feeling Actiontec added dyndns support for the generic versions of the router and that Verizon didn't strip out or left in for business customers.The only exceptions are the grandfathered "donor" accounts and some special accounts that date back to the 90s.But I'll contact them and find out if they know why. I do not want any pc on the network to run an updater, which is what everyone keeps telling me to do.All the pcs on my clients networks are constantly changing.
