Create symlink in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/ so will be called whenever dial-up connection is (re)establised: ln -isv /path/to/ddns.pl /etc/ip-up.d/ddns Works well in conjuntion with /etc/ppp/peers/provider 'persist' and 'holdoff' parameters plus /etc/ppp/ppp_on_boot for nailed-up connecti +on. =head1 REQUIREMENTS perl 5 libwww-perl IO::Interface make to install modules gcc " " " libc6-dev " " /etc/nsswitch => hosts: dns files so name confirm is from DNS not /etc/hosts. =head1 UPDATE November 27, 2001 20:20 CST Compare local interface IP address with DNS lookup address. Check for interface active before proceeding. Confirm DNS updated correct IP address with gethostbyname(). Use IO::Socket+Interface to determine local ppp0 IP address instead of ifconfig with backticks. Eliminate (unecessary) subroutines.
