Dlink dynamic dns not updating online dating sites dos and don'ts
Your ISP almost certainly provides a dynamic external (WAN) IP address to your router; 8.
Because this IP address can CHANGE, any attempts you make with (say) your favorite Domain Registrar (mine is Go Daddy) to related a domain you’ve registered (say VOGTLAND. 1.175) will FAIL, because one day – even several times a day – your ISP can & will CHANGE this IP address right out from under you; 9.
All devices (cameras) inside your LAN will be “seen” as coming from your router’s external (“WAN”) IP address; 2.
There will be NO additional proxying or DNS resolution of the internal IP addresses of these cameras; 3.
The very name itself implies that the streams are differentiated by the PORT# each camera operates on – NOT the internal (LAN) IP address of each camera; This may seem like a lot of conceptual points to grasp, but I’m hoping it – A camera generates a video stream on (say) port 8001, using HTTP (note how I don’t mention the internal IP address because it doesn’t matter what it is, so long as it has one and it’s static – you don’t need ANOTHER changing IP in this equation); – The router has a Port Forward rule permitting HTTP (you can use TCP) traffic on port 8001; – As soon as this camera is running and this router rule is active, you CAN see the video stream from the public internet; you’ll simlpy be accessing it via the external (WAN) IP of the router AND the port# of the stream; – You get to access this video stream via a “vanity” URL by leveraging your DDSN service provider account; that’s where you create a “hostname record” which maps or “resolves” the vanity domain back to the (invariably-changing) external (WAN) IP address of your router.
These port#’s will end up being a part of the external URL for each camera; 5.
Dyn provides an account level key which can be used to update DNS hosts instead of our HTTP-based DNS Update API.
You can generate and obtain your key from your TSIG account settings page.
URL, username, password, hostname, new IP address) to auto-connect to the DDNS service provider, log-in, and actually edit the associated A-record for that hostname.
The DDNS service then propagates this change across all the DNS servers in its farm, and since that farm IS the “official” owner of those domains in the entire DNS service – meaning every OTHER DNS server relays a request for resolving those domains to THIS farm – no additional propagation is required. Since in this scenario the IP addresses of each IP camera in the LAN are both internal (LAN) and static, the DDNS client in each camera does NOT need to be configured at all; 12.
