dDNS Broker Initial Setup
To set up dDNS Broker for consistent and dependable functionality, we recommend the following steps:
Enable Launch At Login
When the application is launched for the first time, it provides an option to enable automatic launch at every login. If you said no to that option, or do not remember your choice; don't worry: click to the status bar menu and select the "Launch At Login" option as shown in the figure to the right.
Select Network Interfaces
Once you decide which network interfaces you would like to monitor for public IP address changes, customize the preferences for each network interface to display their headers only. Then check the monitor checkboxes for the network interfaces you want to monitor, and uncheck for the ones you don’t want to monitor. Please refer to the figure at left to locate the minimize buttons and monitor checkboxes.
Create Dynamic DNS Service Records
To create a service record, please select the "Add" button from a group of buttons below the service records table, as shown in the figure at left.
Figure at right depicts a sample service record dialog. Mutually supported dynamic DNS record types are presented in the service record dialog as well. The dynamic DNS record update function can be tested by simply clicking on the "Test" button.
Turn On the dDNS Update Switch
For further optimization, we recommend you take a few minutes to peruse the Settings dialog box, as well as the Preferences for Active Network Interfaces table, paying close attention to various notification options.
