ChangeIP timeout (resolved)

Mon Apr 23, 2007 11:48 am

I'm trying to use the ChangeIP script, but the log keeps telling me the following
:DDNS Begin
:DDNS Sending Update
:connect error

Then i tried using the the following just to test the dns-update tool.

tool dns-update name=xxxx.changeip.net address=41.242.245.175 key-name=xxxxxx key=zzzzzzz
It also doesn't work, so its not the script. Tried it on 3 lines with 3 different versions of Mikrotik. The provider is Telkom south africa. Any ideas why I cant get it to work? I guess its just something stupid.

can you do this and have it output an IP?

:put [:resolve nic.changeip.com]

Possible your DNS isn't resolving names locally ?

Thx,
Sam

Thanks its working now.

Strange thing is when I ping nic.changeip.net I get the IP, but when I type in :put [:resolve nic.changeip.com] it gives me 0.0.0.0.
Oh well, changed the dns server and its running.

Thanks again
