    I have tried what j_f_d said worked for his situation but it doesnt work



  • it works with dyndns, is this a freedns problem??



  • heres what you do:

    enter everything like normal but leave host name blank.

    go to freedns.afraid.com and click dynamic dns
    you then see your domains you are using, click the direct url link, in the address bar you will see the following:
    http://freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/update.php?randomstring

    copy the random string (everything after the ?) and paste that into hostname, freedns will now update.



  • Thanq you very very much. Your solution is working perfectly.

    Best regards
