I'm trying to use the "NC DNS Updater" to keep my dynamic IP in sync with my namecheap domain name, or trying to, but so far, it isn't working.

Has anyone used another DDNS updater with namecheap.com?

Thanks,

What you need is dDNS Broker ... thank me later :)
WOW! It looks fantastic.

Please...let me thank you NOW! :)

Seriously, that is just what I needed. Will get that app tomorrow.

Appreciate your reply.

I use DNS-O-Matic:

https://dnsomatic.com/wiki/supportedservices

Essentially, you update DNS-O-Matic and it updates whatever services you have configured in your account. I like this setup, as my router updates only one system over my connection and the rest is done remotely.

An example for EdgeRouter users:

I had an issue once where I used my home computer to log into my work VPN and they used full tunneling. When the DDNS client updated, it sent my employer's IP into the system. D'oh! Using the router solved that.

Wow, that's nice too! Thanks. Will keep this in mind for future reference.

I got the broker utility mentioned above right from the App Store and got it installed and working with two DDNS accounts in about 3 minutes.
