Oh. Didn't know that, but I had noticed traffic was low. It is down on nntp side, too:

and I am
hoping that someone may be able to help quickly before I head off to
work today. I hope I am not breaking protocol by doing this, but here goes.


Fine with me :-)


I enabled ddclient, to update my ddns on freedns.afraid.org. I
have to use ddclient or some other application on my pc and cannot use
ddns on my router, because my router's built in ddns is pre-set to
dynDNS.org or TZO, and it doesn't allow any other hosting.

My modem has the same problem.


WARNING: file /var/cache/ddclient/ddclient.cache, line 3: Invalid Value
for keyword 'ip' = ''

I think this is the important line. Just a guess.

[/code]

Those are not needed here ;-)


What I am really wondering on that is if I should disable this service
altogether when I am not using it, so as not to cause problems for the
hosting company. I don't know enough about how this works to know the
answers to that.


I have a trigger set on the router log; a script runs, and the IP is logged. I could use it to trigger a dynamic dns update if I used the service.
