Dynu IP Update Client for Windows Dynu IP Update Client for...

Dynu IP Update Client is a powerful client software which detects any changes to your system's IP address and reports it to Dynu name servers so that your domain name points to the IP detected by the client. It works for both top level domain names (yourdomain.com) as well as third level domain names (yourdomain.dynu.com). You may download and follow the instructions below to setup the client.

This guide is for Dynu IP Update Client version 5.3. If you have an older version of the client, we suggest that you download and use the latest version 5.3. You may check out a list of the powerful features of the client here.

  • Detect IP Based on MAC address - This option allows you to detect the IP based on MAC Address.

Location  Use 'location' parameter if you want to update IP address for one or a collection of hostnames including those created using aliases in different locations. You may set up location for your hostnames in the control panel. Make sure that you leave the 'Location' field empty if you did not assign your hostnames to a location in the control panel. Leaving 'Location' field empty will update all the hostnames in the user account that have not been assigned a 'Location' name.

Poll Interval   Using this you can allow your client to detect your IP in the chosen time interval. By default, the client detects IP every 120 seconds.

Update Port   You can choose which port to perform IP updates. Use a port other than port 80 to avoid ISP proxy.

Update IPv4 address   Enable this if your network has an IPv4 address and you want the hostname mapped to the current IPv4 address.

Update IPv6 address   Enable this if your network has an IPv6 address and you want the hostname mapped to the latest IPv6 address. Keep this option disabled if your ISP does not provide you with IPv6 connectivity.

Logging   Logging allows you to keep track of the client activity and debug any configuration or connection issues you may have.

Log Level   The default 'Detailed' log level allows you to monitor your IP changes. You can check the logs by clicking the 'Log Files' button in the 'Engine' tab.
