    hello,

    I need help why I can't browse mysite from outside. I'm using fedora8, installed ddclient 3.7.3 and using streamyx broadband dynamic ip. I attached here my ddclient.conf, ddclient.cache and ping mysite. Thank you .

    1) ddclient.conf

    daemon=300                # check every 300 seconds
    syslog=yes                # log update msgs to syslog
    mail=root                # mail all msgs to root
    mail-failure=root            # mail failed update msgs to root
    pid=/var/run/ddclient.pid        # record PID in file.
    ssl=yes                    # use ssl-support.  Works with
                        # ssl-library
    #
    ## To obtain an IP address from FW status page (using fw-login, fw-password)

    use=fw
    fw=192.168.1.254/status.asp
    fw-skip='WAN IP Address:'
    fw-login=admin
    fw-password=mypass

    ## To obtain an IP address from Web status page (using the proxy if defined)
    #use=web, web=checkip.dyndns.org/, web-skip='IP Address' # found after IP Address
    use=web
    web=checkip.dyndns.org/
    web-skip='WAN IP Address'

    #
    use=ip,                     ip=192.168.1.33    # via static IP's
    use=if,                     if=eth0        # via interfaces
    use=web                              # via web
    #
    protocol=dyndns2                # default protocol
    server=members.dyndns.org            # default server
    login=gobek
    password=mypass                 # default password
    mx=gobek.net                    # default MX
    backupmx=yes                    # host is primary MX?
    wildcard=yes                    # add wildcard CNAME?

    ##
    ## dyndns.org dynamic addresses
    ##
    ## (supports variables: wildcard,mx,backupmx)
    ##

    server=members.dyndns.org,
    protocol=dyndns2   
    gobek.homelinux.com

    2) my ddclient.cache

    ## ddclient-3.7.3
    ## last updated at Tue Feb 19 00:22:38 2008 (1203351758)
    atime=1203351533,backupmx=1,custom=0,host=gobek.homelinux.com,ip=60.53.101.93,mtime=1203351533,mx=gobek.net,static=0,status=good,warned-min-error-interval=0,warned-min-interval=0,wildcard=1,wtime=30 gobek.homelinux.com

    3) ping mysite

      ddclient has nothing to do with browsing your network from outside.  As it says on http://ddclient.sf.net:

      "DDclient is a Perl client used to update dynamic DNS entries for accounts on Dynamic DNS Network Services' free DNS service."

      The only thing it does is posting your IP to a dynamic DNS provider.  It makes it possible to find your WAN IP from outside.  So if you want to verify if your config is working you should try something like this:

      $ host gobek.homelinux.com
      gobek.homelinux.com has address 60.53.101.93
      gobek.homelinux.com mail is handled by 5 gobek.homelinux.com.
      gobek.homelinux.com mail is handled by 10 gobek.net.

      So it looks like ddclient works correctly: your cache is containing the same IP.
