Google for 'ez-ipupdate' - it's a tool that will automatically
update your IP address and works with several dynamic dns
providers. The usual method for making a domain go to
a dyndns address is to put a CNAME record in your zone,
www 86400 IN CNAME foo.dyndns.org.
then keep foo.dyndns.org updated using ez-ipupdate.
Are there tools that would allow the entire package do be built "in-house",
We have a main server with static ip address, and a bunch of remote sites
with dynamic ip addresses. Can I install ez-ipupdate (or something like
it) on remote sites and configure them to update our main server instead of
dyndns? If so what gets installed on main server to handle this?
