Support for Google Domains using dyndns2 protocol?

Postby h_smith » Sat Jun 18, 2016 9:01 pm

I am looking for a Windows client that will run on Windows-XP64 and Windows 7.

I would like to move away from Dyn and switch to Google Domains but I need to find a good Dynamic IP client first.

Can you tell me if Direct Update supports the dyndns2 protocol?

Thank you in advance.


From the Google Domains Help Page:

There are several popular dynamic DNS clients in use, such as DDclient and INADYN. In addition most routers have software built in to detect IP changes and communicate them with the name servers.

Note: Google Domains uses the dyndns2 protocol.

Configure your dynamic DNS client with:

Provider (or DNS or Service): The name of your DNS Provider.
Username: (or credential) the generated username in the Dynamic DNS record.
Password (or credential): the generated password in the Dynamic DNS record.

After you have created the record and configured your client software, test it by entering the subdomain and domain into a web browser (or appropriate client) and seeing that it connects to the correct resource.
