Does anyone have a copy of sme7-ddcient ?

Does anyone have a copy of sme7-ddcient ?
« on: April 13, 2012, 12:03:44 PM »
Hi,

just had to reinstall 8b7, but now I need ddclient. The standard package does not install,  :-( and the one that I have used successfully in the past from smeserver.free.fr is no longer accessible.  :shock:

Can anyone help ?

Hi, Crazybob,

thanks for that, I had already used my trusty friend google; sadly it is not the latest which I believe is 3.7.3-4 and I wondered if anyone might have a copy squirelled  away.

hawk & nowhinjing

There are newer versions available

From http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/smeserver/releases/7/smeaddons/i386/repoview/ddclient.html
ddclient-3.8.0-2.el4.noarch

From http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/smeserver/releases/7/smecontribs/i386/repoview/smeserver-ddclient.html
smeserver-ddclient-1.0.0-19.el4.sme.noarch

I have a newer version of sme7-ddclient ie
sme7-ddclient-3.7.3-7.noarch

I am looking for a current download location source, as 
http://smeserver.free.fr/
appears to be defunct

I uploaded it here (unzip it before using)

In many cases, you really do not need to use ddclient or some variation of it eg sme7-ddclient

You can use the built in dynamic client for your main domain (accesible by running Configure this server from the admin console).
Then create CNAME entries in external DNS records which point at the main domain name.
SME will update the main domain name/dynamicIP change, and the additional domains will follow it as the external IP changes.
See
http://bugs.contribs.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6206#c9
"I notice that you mention two dyndns domains, but you should be able to set up domain2.x.y to be a CNAME for domain1.x.y, then configure domain1.x.y with the builtin client."

Thanks, Mary,

As my domains are served by EuroDNS and as ddclient is their preferred method, and as I know that it works, I will stick with it.

Many thanks for the newer version - I'll give it a go.

hi

not sure if you still want it, but i have dumped it onto your server

for what its worth i don't use ddclient, i rather use the DYNDNS settings in my router, seems to be more reliable
thanks
John
