Question

in the past when I've had to use DDNS services they are provided by DVR/NVR manufacturer. Ones I've used in the past are Samsung and Hik.

they've always worked perfectly and to this day they are still connected. I assume the external IP is changing on a regular basis but the DDNS service automatically updates it.

i am testing a tp link nano router at home in order to create a hardwired Ethernet connection at my alarm panel, wirelessly from my EE router.

worked a treat but the other day could not connect. my external ip had changed but no-ip had not automatically updated it. am I missing something here?

or is this a limitation of free DDNS services?

I registered for a free one to see how it performed. failed at the first hurdle really.

do you not host your own James rather than using other people's services?

We use both DynDns and No-IP services with our own domain names.

Ive just recently migrated around 80 clients over to No-IP and have had s few updating issues

I much prefer DynDns but since there change in charges I looked at the alternative.

I have 43 Pro accounts with 32 in each of them that used to be annual charge of £18'ish each

DynDns now charge monthly at twice the price, that's why im looking migrating

I looled at it but seemed to much effort for the gain, plus dvr's etc only support certain account types

I assume the you have entered the no-ip details in your EE routers ddns section and not the tp link nano

 

If it doesnt have one then you can run an updater program on a pc/laptop, it's called Homing Beacon

The opinions I express are mine and are usually correct!

Some routers don't have any dyndns options in them. Mainly virgin "super" hubs

Try to use dyndns on some DVRs and they just won't update

This is the problem were having with NO-IP, DynDns is seamless

Ive always used dyndns, paid for one.

set my clients up the free no ip ones and whilst theres not millions out there I havent had any problems with noip.

 

after 28 days of no change the free no ip account emails you to manually activate it or lose it.

 

set this up with routers or DVR/NVR's,only problem I do have is one system using Sky service keeps resetting the port forwarding when its updated.

 

I can see from the no ip that the ip has updated, and just go in and reset the port forwarding in the sky router and everythings back to normal.

 

Just wish the sky router stopped rebooting/ upgrading and wiping the details out.

I'm with sky and never had the port forwarding get wiped.

Why not fit a standard router , netgear or belkin and use that instead of the sky one
