Hi,

i am writing this after ****ing up 2 routers...  :'(

the main reason for this post is if its possible to update a domain with afraid.org dynamic dns provider?

now u may ask why are the routers being dragged into this? well i readsomewhere on the net that DDwrt supports updating of afraig.org dynamic dns service, and i tried to flash ddwrt to my routers and succeeded but failed to get connected to my ISP...and screwed up the router by trying to flash back the orginal firmware...well thats my loss...

but i really need to used afraid.org as it is hosting my paid domain for free....unlike dyndns.org which is asking me for money for dydnds pro service.

can someone please teach me how to configure HFS to update my domain at afraid.org/

thank you very much

You have to use an update key on the FreeDNS service to the current IP

You can obtain the update key  by going to the Dynamic DNS page once logged into afraid.org. Under each A record is a “Direct Link” link that contains the update key at the end of the URL;

"http://freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/update.php?" + "update_key"


Example: if your update key is JHGHgKhvJHgKKhjbkhBkjhKuhKug

write it in the custom dyndns field of hfs
http://freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/update.php?JHGHgKhvJHgKKhjbkhBkjhKuhKug


an working example:
