I recently purchased a RV042 device but when I tried to set my DDNS account I realized that the only two providers are dyndns.org and 3322.net. We already have an account in no-ip.com and several services using the no-ip.com host.
How can I set up a no-ip account in my rv042?
Regards and thanks for your help.
I couldn't find any "trick" to force it to use no-ip.com with it. I'm sorry to say, but should have read the specifications before purchase:
What if I install the no-ip client (DUC) in one of my server?
We use Dual-WAN in load balance mode. The problem is that when the no-ip client updates, it will be reporting WAN1 IP and/or WAN2 IP. Is there any way to avoid this behaviour?
If you install the client will work, but you'll have the problem that you said.
Maybe you can prioritize one provider over the other so always use the same exit point.
Otherwise you'll have the exit IP registered on no-ip.com.
Cisco IOS versions 12.4 and later have the capability to directly update your No-IP hostname using a built-in DDNS client. If you have a Cisco router with the latest firmware, this support is already built into it. We offer these examples below for informational purposes only and recommend that router configuration changes be made by qualified personnel to minimize the risk of losing Internet connectivity or causing other damage to the router.
|Command or Action||Purpose|
|Enables privileged EXEC mode. Enter your password if prompted.|
|Step 2||configure terminal|
Example:Router# configure terminal
|Enters global configuration mode.|
|Step 3||ip ddns update method method-name|
Example:Router(config)# ip ddns update method myupdate
|Specifies the update method name.|
|Step 4||ddns [both]|
|Configures DDNS as the update method and enters update method configuration mode. The both keyword specifies that both A and PTR RRs will be updated. Note You can specify DDNS or HTTP but not both in one step. If you have specified DDNS, you must disable it by using the no ddns command before you can configure HTTP. For the HTTP configuration, see Steps 5, 6, and 7.|
|Step 5||internal name-cache|
Example:Router(DDNS-update-method)# internal mycache
|Specifies that an internal cache will be used as the update method.|
|Configures HTTP as the update method and enters DDNS-HTTP configuration mode.|
|Step 7||add url|
Example:Router(DDNS-HTTP)# add http://username:password%40dynupdate.no-
|Configures a URL that should be invoked in order to add or change a mapping between a hostname and an IP address. The following example of a URL specifies adding or changing the mapping information using No-IP.com: http://username:password%40dynupdate.no-ip.com/nic/update%3Fhostname=hostname.yourdomain.com. You have to input the URL string noted above. Alternatively, you can use the URL string http://username:password%40dynupdate.no-ip.com/nic/update%3Fhostname=&myip=The special character strings and will be substituted with the hostname to update and the IP address with which that hostname should be associated, respectively.|
Note: Use the html encoding of %40 for the "@" symbol and %3F for the "?" symbol or IOS will complain.
|Step 8||remove url|
Example:Router(DDNS-HTTP)# add http://username:password%40dynupdate.no-ip.com/nic/update%3F
|Configures a URL that should be invoked in order to remove a mapping between a hostname and an IP address. The URL takes the same form as the add keyword in Step 6.Note: Use the html encoding of %40 for the "@" symbol and %3F for the "?" symbol or IOS will complain.|
|Step 9||interval maximum days hours minutes seconds|
Example:Router(DDNS-HTTP)# interval maximum 1 0 0 0
|Configures a maximum update interval. The arguments are as follows: daysRange is from 1 to 365. hoursRange is from 1 to 24. minutesRange is from 1 to 60. secondsRange is from 1 to 60.|
|Exits to update-method configuration mode.|
|Exits to global configuration mode.|
|Step 12||interface interface-type number|
Example:Router(config)# interface ether1
|Enters interface mode.|
|Step 13||ip ddns update hostname hostname|
Example:Router(config-if)# ip ddns update hostname hostname.yourdomain.com
|Specifies a host to be used for the updates. The update will associate this hostname with the configured IP address of the interface. The hostname argument specifies the hostname that will receive the updates (for example, yourdomain.com).|
|Step 14||ip ddns update method method-name|
Example:Router(config-if) ip ddns update myupdate
|Specifies the name of the update method to use for sending Dynamic DNS updates associated with address changes on this interface.|
