Well, the web site didn't turn up anything. I'd like to set up a
dynamic DNS server on a FreeBSD box. If you're not familiar with the
concept, A machine that boots with a dynamic IP addresses runs a
client whenever the IP address changes, thus causing the DNS server to
change it's records so that the name for that machine now maps to the
new ip address.
Any pointers - especially to software - greatly appreciated.
If your clients get their addresses from a DHCP server, and that DHCP
server will be running on FreeBSD - use the "isc-dhcp3" port. It
supports DDNS updates, as does the BIND version that comes with FreeBSD.
For a general client that can send DNS update requests to BIND, see
The rest is a small matter of configuration :-)
