dyndnsc 0.4.2

dynamic dns (dyndns) update client with support for multiple protocols

Dyndnsc - dynamic dns update client

Dyndnsc is a command line client for sending updates to dynamic dns (ddns, dyndns) services. It supports multiple protocols and services, and it is compatible with ipv4 as well as ipv6. The configuration file allows using foreign, but compatible services. Dyndnsc ships many different IP detection mechanisms, support for configuring multiple services in one place and it has a daemon mode for running unattended. It has a plugin architecture for supporting notification services like Growl or OS X Notification center.
