    Hi i have tomato installed and askt my dns support if i could update by an custum url and i got this as ansver.

    Mayby you could use this file : and i got a text file from him.
    But he thougt i shuld use dyndns or somthing.

    So i would like to know if its possible to use the settings in the text file in tomato in any way.

    I use dyndns. It's free and works for me. If all you're trying to do is update a dns record with a dynamic WAN IP, that's what I do, simple & easy. I'm not going to dig in a reconfigure DNS when I can do it by selecting a couple of dropdowns and filling in a few blanks on my router & dyndns.org, :-D

    solved it it was just to comma separate the diffrent domain and subdomain.

    but now the tomate firmware just ignore to update the ip adress is it becouse it compares the previus ip with the new and noticed that they are the same?

    i only get this :
    Last IP Address -
    Last Result -

    Guess I didn't understand where you were trying to do, or that Tomato was capable of it, :-D I read over on wikibooks:

    "You can enter a custom DDNS URL like the following:
    (remove the underscore after http, it's to prevent the text from being interpretted as a link)
    The "@IP" keyword is automatically replaced with the current IP address. Check with your DDNS provider for the exact format to use."

    Although the Tomato FAQ says to use "http_://username:password@domain/" notation, but does also state that @IP works.

    There is a tick box in the Tomato GUI to force the next update, presumably only the next. Maybe I'm still not understanding. Except to test, why do you need to update if the IP doesn't change? Looks like mabye you're trying to manage more than just the DNS of your Tomato router but I would think Tomato is really only set up to manage it's own DNS entry. Maybe there is a way to hotwire it but maybe not through the GUI without some scripting. You could do something simple & kludgey like flip it to a dummy non-routable IP then back, :-D That would, of course cause a brief period of looking up the wrong address. Guess it depends on how critical the stuff you're running is. For my home network, doing that occasionally wouldn't be an issue.

    the only reson that i want it to update now is just to see if it works correctly.

    I have made a change in my dns if my ip ends on 236 then i wrot eg. 23 in my dns to see if it updates when i force the change in tomato gui.

    forgott to wrote that i have the force next.. checked
    and if i surf to url manually it works great

    Did you find any sollution? I'm also using loopia ddns with tomato.
    I just installed tomato and havent had much time trying it out yet tho but this seems to work for me:


    with multiple domains/subdomains just add a comma.
