Dynamic DNS Help
A Dynamic DNS (DDNS) service provides a central public database where information (such as e-mail addresses, host names, and IP addresses) can be stored and retrieved. The Dynamic DNS server also stores password-protected information and accepts queries based on e-mail addresses.
If you want to use a DDNS service, you must register for it. The Dynamic DNS client service provider will give you a password or key.
To set up for DDNS:
- If you have registered with a DDNS service provider, select the Use A Dynamic DNS Service check box.
- Select the name of your Dynamic DNS service provider.
- Type the host name that your Dynamic DNS service provider gave you.
The DDNS service provider might call this the domain name.
- Type the user name for your DDNS account.
- Type the password (or key) for your DDNS account.
- Click Apply to have the DDNS service used.
Note: The router supports only basic DDNS, and the login and password might not be secure. If you have a private WAN IP address, do not use DDNS service as it can lead to problems.
