Can the DDNS client update more frequently?

    Hello,

    I am using a WRT54GS with Firmware: v4.70.8, Hyperwrt 2.1b1 + Thibor13d. , and configuring the routers dynamic DNS client to update a hostname at dyndns.org. the problem is that since my Ip rarely changes, the router lets the host expire every 30 days. I really like the convenience of having my Dynamic DNS client integrated into the router's firmware; but the need to manually insure that the host updates every 30 days defeats the purpose of having a client in the first place. Is there anything I can do to cause the router to automatically update the host on a more frequent basis?

    Thanks,

    --Al

    I am currently testing a startup script (on Thibor 15c) which runs a daily update, details in the following thread

    http://www.linksysinfo.org/forums/showthread.php?t=47662

    It has now been running for some 10 days so I am loathe to stop it yet, but you don't need the messages to go into my_dyndns.log, the ezipudate messages go into a file \tmp\startup.log

    Code:
    # cat /tmp/startup.log

    Only other problem I've had is that I managed to get 2 copies of the script running at one time.

    There is also still a problem with abusive updates on reboot, and then ezipupdate will not try to update for 25days. I made my IP change before restarting so I know the date stored in the router is the same as that in dyndns.com at the moment.
