dynDNS Update Script

Sun Aug 30, 2009 3:01 pm

in order to support dyndns i took some parts from the changeip script and made it work for.

1) add a script called dynDNS:
# Define User Variables
:global ddnsuser "DYNDNSUSER"
:global ddnspass "DYNDNSPASS"
:global ddnshost "DYNDNSHOST"
 
# Define Global Variables
:global ddnsip
:global ddnslastip
:if ([ :typeof $ddnslastip ] = nil ) do={ :global ddnslastip "0" }
 
:global ddnsinterface
:global ddnssystem ("mt-" . [/system package get system version] )
 
# Define Local Variables
:local int
 
# Loop thru interfaces and look for ones containing
# default gateways without routing-marks
:foreach int in=[/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes ] do={
  :if ([:typeof [/ip route get $int routing-mark ]] != str ) do={
     :global ddnsinterface [/ip route get $int interface]
  }
}
 
# Grab the current IP address on that interface.
:global ddnsip [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface ] address ]
 
# Did we get an IP address to compare?
:if ([ :typeof $ddnsip ] = nil ) do={
   :log info ("DynDNS: No ip address present on " . $ddnsinterface . ", please check.")
} else={
  :if ($ddnsip != $ddnslastip) do={
	 :log info "DynDNS: Sending UPDATE!"
	 :local str "/nic/update?hostname=$ddnshost&myip=$ddnsip&wildcard=NOCHG&mx=NOCHG&backmx=NOCHG"
	 /tool fetch address=members.dyndns.org src-path=$str mode=http user=$ddnsuser password=$ddnspass dst-path=("/DynDNS.".$ddnshost)
	 :delay 1
	 :local str [/file find name="DynDNS.$ddnshost"];
	 /file remove $str
	 :global ddnslastip $ddnsip
  }
}
2) Add a scheduler entry to run every minute
/system scheduler add name=dynDNS interval=00:01 on-event="/system script run dynDns\r\n"
Thanks to the creator of changeip/everydns-script, i hope it's no problem to use the base or some parts!

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Hey!

I bought yesterday an RB 750 and I'm trying to setup DynDNS using this script.

I want to ask if the only variables that I have to change is those :

:global ddnsuser "DYNDNSUSER"
:global ddnspass "DYNDNSPASS"
:global ddnshost "DYNDNSHOST"

or I need to change and something else....

I changed those variables but the IP is not changing...

Thanks!

these are the only variables.
what happens if you run the script manually: /system script run dynDNS
have you set the scheduler?

have you added the scheduler job in gui or commandline?

it's important to add the \r\n characters, otherwise the command is not executed

please make "/system scheduler export" and paste it here.
the execute command should be with "" like "/system script run dynDNS\r\n"
you have a whitespace between S and \r, perhaps this is your issue.

you can add the following line on top of the script in order to check wether your script is executed:
:log info "dynDNS script executed"

your scheduler entry should only have "dynDNS" and nothing else ... it's the _name_ of a script to run, not an actual script to run. You do not need \r\n or any of that. I think this changed recently because you used to be able to put scripts in the scheduler directly, now it is just the name of the script you enter.

i set the entry in the gui without \r\n and the script wasn't executed. after adding them it worked so i thought, could be helpful too

it seems your fetch version won't support usernames in http-mode.
you could try the fetch command with the url tag instead of the address tag.

the address tag was added in version 3.23, so you have to update your box

Sun Sep 06, 2009 6:29 pm

Thank you hacki for replying..
But i open the box terminal and /tool then fetch command and press tab to see available fetch arguments and explore the following:

[admin@mRzErO] /tool> fetch
dst-path host mode password port user address src-path

so what is meant by these arguments; there is an address, user and password :?
but you said it doesn't support address and it said ignoring username and password!!
is it a Bug in MT manual? :)

So, can i install only a one package to do that?
I like the 3.13 version as it is stable version..
and what's version of MT that supports fetch http auth, 3.23 is it?
thanks.. :wink: :wink:

you cannot use different versions of packages on the same router. you should upgrade

In scheduler specify only scripts name not a command to run script.
You need at least, read,write,test and ftp policies.

OK!

scheduler works perfect!

maybe the problem in on script...

I used the script which is at the top of the thread and I only changed the 3 first variable like this :


:global ddnsuser "xxxxxxx"
:global ddnspass "xxxxxxxx"
:global ddnshost "xxxxxxx.ath.cx"

your scheduler has run the script 1000+ times. Start at the beginning again, what's not working and what are you getting the logs? The script runs fine manually, but not under scheduler? Are you on the latest version?

Thanks for the script Hacki. I've inputted my credentials into the ddnsuser, ddnspass and ddnshost string values, but I keep getting the following message:

"[admin@MikroTik] /system script> run script1
interrupted
invalid internal item number"

The only thing I changed was the first three global variables:

:global ddnsuser "xxxx"
:global ddnspass "xxxxxxx"
:global ddnshost "xxxx.dnsalias.net"

Hello,

This is okay, I do not mind. Please, anyone using services other than ChangeIP.com, please be aware that your passwords are being sent across in the internet in clear text. If not using https then it will be easy for someone to detect your credentials.

I love Mikrotik. I have here because of that. I am a Dynamic DNS guy. We provide free services, but I do not feel bad if you choose not to use our services. Of course I know we offer a better service with less hassle, but it's always your choice. : )

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Sat Sep 12, 2009 9:24 pm

HI,

It's a problem if I delete this from the script?
:if ($ddnsip != $ddnslastip) do={
I have problems updating my ADSL line. First time works, but the others don't. I reboot the router to make the IP change but it doesn't update it in the web. If I delete this line, it works.


The problem now is that every minute my ROS updates or rewrite the IP in dyndns.. Can I have problems doing this?

Thanks,
Martín

I'm not sure, but i think dynDNS will ban you for some time if you update so often.

try to input the following commands in your terminal and poste the output

/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes
/ip route get <your ppp Interface> routing-mark
/ip route get <your ppp interface interface
/ip address get [/ip address find interface=<your ppp interface> ] address ]

HI,

I don't have ppp in my ROS. ppp is configured in my router. I have a static IP in my ROS eth0 like 192.168.1.x.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

HI,

I don't have ppp in my ROS. ppp is configured in my router. I have a static IP in my ROS eth0 like 192.168.1.x.
If this parameter is not specified, the best IP address the server can determine will be used (some proxy configurations pass the IP in a header, and that is detected by the server). If the IP address passed to the system is not properly formed, it will be ignored and the system's best guess will be used.
you could try to remove the ip parameter from the ":local str" variable
remove: &myip=$ddnsip
and try again

if it won't work you could try to do a fetch on http://checkip.dyndns.com/ and compare the content every minute. if the ip address changed, you could parse the ip out of the file and complete the update.
i think this script can help you to work this out: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Using_Fet ... ress_Lists

After numerous tries the script below seems to work fine under any condition with v3.28. For some reason the original script kept on failing to automatically (manually worked) update DynDNS, specially right after a router reboot.
/system script add name=DynDNS policy=read,test source={

:global ddnspass "pass"

:global ddnsinterface
:global ddnssystem ("mt-" . [/system package get system version])

# Define Local Variables
:local int

# Loop thru interfaces and look for ones containing
# default gateways without routing-marks
:foreach int in=[/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes] do={

    :global ddnsinterface [/ip route get $int interface]
  }
}

# Grab the current IP address on that interface.
:global ddnsip [/ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface] address]

# Did we get an IP address to compare
:if ([:typeof $ddnsip] = nil) do={
  :log info ("DynDNS: No ip address present on " . $ddnsinterface . ", please check.")
} else={

  :if ($ddnsip != $ddnslastip) do={

    /tool fetch keep-result=no url="http://$ddnsuser:$ddnspass@204.13.248.112/nic/update\?hostname=$ddnshost"

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Sat Sep 19, 2009 12:37 am

I've made something similar and have been testing for a few weeks...just saw this post and thought I'd share. I haven't been locked out of dyndns yet, so this should be a good script as well. The main difference is that it queries checkip.dyndns.org for the current publicly facing IP address. I also set up a force update once every day at midnight. This prevents the dyndns domain from expiring due to it not being updated enough (which has happened to me in the past). The script has lots of logs and a few puts in it, but these can be safely deleted if desired. The policies on the scripts mentioned above still apply. Make sure those are set properly as well.

The Script "dyndns-update". Set the local variables username, password and hostname:
# Set needed variables
:local username "dyndnsUsername"
:local password "dyndnsPassword"
:local hostname "hostname.dyndns.org"

:global dyndnsForce
:global previousIP

# print some debug info
:log info ("dyndns-update: username = $username")
:log info ("dyndns-update: password = $password")
:log info ("dyndns-update: hostname = $hostname")
:log info ("dyndns-update: previousIP = $previousIP")

# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]

# parse the current IP result
:local resultLen [:len $result]
:local startLoc [:find $result ": " -1]
:set startLoc ($startLoc + 2)
:local endLoc [:find $result "</body>" -1]
:local currentIP [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]
:log info "dyndns-update: currentIP = $currentIP"

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details available at http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html
:if (($currentIP != $previousIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
    :set dyndnsForce false
    :set previousIP $currentIP
    /tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" src-path="/nic/update?hostname=$hostname&myip=$currentIP" dst-path="/dyndns.txt"
    :local result [/file get dyndns.txt contents]
    :log info ("dyndns-update: Dyndns update needed")
    :log info ("dyndns-update: Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
    :put ("Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
} else={
    :log info ("dyndns-update: No dyndns update needed")
}
Script "dyndns-force". Intended to update dyndns only once every 24 hrs. If you run this too much, you may get locked out of dyndns.
:global dyndnsForce true
/system script run dyndns-update
Setup the schedulers. Run dyndns-update every 15 minutes and dyndns-force once every 24 hours:
/system scheduler add comment="" disabled=no interval=15m name=dyndns-update on-event=\
    dyndns-update start-date=jan/01/1970 start-time=00:00:00
/system scheduler add comment="" disabled=no interval=1d name=dyndns-force on-event=\

    dyndns-update start-date=jan/01/1970 start-time=00:00:00
/system scheduler add comment="" disabled=no interval=1d name=dyndns-force on-event=\
    dyndns-force start-date=jan/01/1970 start-time=02:00:00

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details available at http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html
:if (($currentIP != $previousIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
:set dyndnsForce false
:set previousIP $currentIP
/tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" src-path="/nic/update?
Is working fine, thanks!

Question:
How I can modify this script that the current IP will taken out of the dyndns database directly instead of the value stored locally?

Result would be that the update will also be forced in any cases dyndns record was modified by another device etc. for example.

Thanks
Dirk

Hello hacki,

thanks for your feedback!
PreviousIP = [:resolve your.dynhost.tld]
hacki
Could I also specify the dedicated nameserver I'd like to query instead of the standard local configured dns server?

Thanks
Dirk

I am happy also with the initial version. But if I would take the current IP directly out of the database or if I could directly request the dyndns.org mailserver than I would get the really currently address - device independent.

Otherwise it could be that the local stored address and the content of the dyndns server is different and the script will not make the necessary update. This would not happen normally - that is true.

A command like: "/system nslookup my.domain.tld server ns1.dyndns.org querytype=A >currentIP.txt" is not availiable in RouterOK?

Thanks for the script, y have 2 scripts now, one for internet with pppoe (your script) and other for internet with dhcp client or static IP address (default route not asociated with an specific interface).

The diferences:

For PPPoE:
:foreach int in=[/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes ] do={
  :if ([:typeof [/ip route get $int routing-mark ]] != str ) do={
     :global ddnsinterface [/ip route get $int interface]
  }
}
For DHCP or Static IP (senseless for static IP) replace above with this:
:global ddnsinterface "ether1"
And of course:
/system scheduler add name=dynDNS interval=00:01 on-event="/system script run dynDNS\r\n"
Thankyou again.

Good afternoon.
I have a problem: tried all options (in my version mikrotik 2.9), did not want to work.
Is it possible to work with this service correctly on my version?

No,

the problem is in fetch tool with the 2.9.x.

3.x solves the script problem with fetch. I think its about validation with fetch in html.

Do I correctly indicates the server address? "208.78.71.100"

And if will work, because this team? "dns-update dns-server=208.78.71.100 name=livexxx \
zone=xxxddns.com address=91.215.xx.xx key-name=xxx key=xxx"

But when you enter commands, writes that an incorrect password.

Finally I need a conclusion, if you want more ram head on this version or better to upgrade mikrotik?

Well, the script works to some extent, but I do not think it sends the IP address to dyndns in the correct way, and it is dyndns itself which determines the IP...

:global ddnsip [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface ] address ]

seems to result in the IP address formatted like: 100.101.102.103/32 and this is the string actually sent to DynDNS. DynDNS does not accept it, however, it will assume that the request has come from the originating IP... For those who have only one active internet connection and active IP, the script will normally work. But in my case it fails as I have multiple IPs.

How can we rewrite the IP address string to contain the address itself only, like 100.101.102.103 and no netmask/etc?

did you specoify the interface with the actual dynamic ip on it? pppoe1 vs ether1 or something?

our system will support x.x.x.x/XX style updates, we just strip out the subnet mask.

my_pppoe_interface needs to be in quotes.

i dont know if that fetch command is right. paste the entire thing into terminal with { } surrounding it and see what is highlighted with errors.

:log info $ip

The Script "dyndns-update". Set the local variables username, password and hostname:
Script "dyndns-force". Intended to update dyndns only once every 24 hrs. If you run this too much, you may get locked out of dyndns.
Setup the schedulers. Run dyndns-update every 15 minutes and dyndns-force once every 24 hours:
Thank you, Your version of Mikrotik 3.30 earned (without problems).

hope so, that my answar will help to someone. i had exactly same problem, and a problem was in default routes in Mikrotik. All my default routes had some routing marks, and i made one without routing mark, and then everything was fine. in this case, Mikrotik was without internet access (i couldn't ping any address or host on internet)

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Wed Aug 25, 2010 11:00 pm

What if my IP address doesn't change very often? I mean, it's called dynamic by my ISP, but as far as I'm concerned it doesn't change for a few months or so. And since free DynDNS service requires that you update your IP at least once a month, this script could easily get it expired. It would be nice to modify this script, so the IP gets updated for example every 20 script runs (depending on execution intervals) to avoid expiration.

One solution to this problem could be another script (scheduled to run once a week) that updates IP every time it's executed.

Just a thought though.

Hi taduikis!

You can run this script every 10 days, for example or twice a week:

:local hostname "siteX.dyndns.org"



:global dyndnsForce
:global previousIP

# print some debug info
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: username = $username")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: password = $password")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: hostname = $hostname")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: previousIP = $previousIP")

# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]

# parse the current IP result
:local resultLen [:len $result]
:local startLoc [:find $result ": " -1]
:set startLoc ($startLoc + 2)
:local endLoc [:find $result "</body>" -1]
:local currentIP [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]

what should i enter here
:local hostname "nohostset"
and here
:if ($systemname  = "Site1" ) do= {
:set hostname "yourdomain1.dyndns.org"
}
:if ($systemname  = "Site2" ) do= {
:set hostname "yourdomain2.dyndns.org"
}
:if ($systemname  = "Site3" ) do= {
:set hostname "yourdomain3.dyndns.org"
}
when i ran this script with these values i got such result:

Fatslim, you can use this commands:
:local hostname [/system identity get name]
and use your entirely domain name as your router identity.

Other option, upload the files: user.txt, password.txt and host.txt with the specific information for each router and use this script:
# Set needed variables
:global username [/file get user.txt contents]
:global password [/file get password.txt contents]
:global hostname [/file get host.txt contents]

:global dyndnsForce
:global previousIP

:set previousIP [:resolve domain-name=$hostname]

# print some debug info
:log info ("dyndns-update: username = $username")
:log info ("dyndns-update: password = $password")
:log info ("dyndns-update: hostname = $hostname")
:log info ("dyndns-update: previousIP = $previousIP")

# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:global result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]

# parse the current IP result
:local resultLen [:len $result]
:local startLoc [:find $result ": " -1]
:set startLoc ($startLoc + 2)
:local endLoc [:find $result "</body>" -1]
:local currentIP [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]
:log info "dyndns-update: currentIP = $currentIP"

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details available at http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html

:if (($currentIP != $previousIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
    :set dyndnsForce false
    :set previousIP $currentIP
    /tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" src-path="/nic/update?hostname=$hostname&myip=$currentIP" dst-path="/dyndns.txt"

    :local result [/file get dyndns.txt contents]
    :log info ("dyndns-update: Dyndns update needed")
    :log info ("dyndns-update: Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
    :put ("Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)

} else={
    :log info ("dyndns-update: No dyndns update needed")
}

I have RB miniRouter (mipsle) v3.30.

When I execute:

/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"

The console returns:

invalid value for argument address

What is the problem?

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Hi.

I have several routers RB750.
Each of them is connected to the Internet via two channels.
One of the main, second backup.
Channels toggle script checks the availability of the Internet through the main channel.
How do I decide on what ip-address of the router is accessible from the Internet?
This code
# Loop thru interfaces and look for ones containing
# default gateways without routing-marks
:foreach int in=[/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes ] do={
  :if ([:typeof [/ip route get $int routing-mark ]] != str ) do={
     :global ddnsinterface [/ip route get $int interface]
  }
}
not work on 4.13.
Metod with checkip.dyndns.org uses flash memory on each run.
If running script every 1 min (ok, every 5 min) - how quickly corrupt flash memory?
I would like to still use the first method - to determine the address of the interface through which assigned a default gateway (route 0.0.0.0.0)

Hi this script stays on Update IP needed SENDING UPDATE!
after that nothing happens, im running on V4.5 a PPPoE connection.

Thanks


:local ddnsuser "host"

:local theinterface "PPPoE"
:local ddnshost "host.dyndns.org"
:local ipddns [:resolve $ddnshost];
:local ipfresh [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$theinterface ] address ]
:if ([ :typeof $ipfresh ] = nil ) do={
:log info ("DynDNS: No ip address on $theinterface .")
} else={
:for i from=( [:len $ipfresh] - 1) to=0 do={
:if ( [:pick $ipfresh $i] = "/") do={
:set ipfresh [:pick $ipfresh 0 $i];
}
}

:if ($ipddns != $ipfresh) do={

Hi,

I am using the Dyndns script and this works fine, but I have a problem. I have added this script to the schedule, but It doesn't work.

I don't know why it does not work. If you can give and answer.

Thanks in advance.

I have the same situation like you.
You should make 2 scripts and add them to the scheduler.
In each script you have the pppoe1 connection and respectively the pppoe2 connection.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Fri Apr 22, 2011 7:18 pm

Hello,

I have the same problem... I would like to update the pppoe-out1 interface, but this is not the default gateway.

I have solved easily how to fetch the right IP with:
:global ddnsinterface "pppoe-out1"

if ([:typeof $ddnsinterface] = nil) do={
# Loop thru interfaces and look for ones containing
# default gateways without routing-marks
  :foreach int in=[/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes] do={
    :if ([:typeof [/ip route get $int routing-mark]] != str) do={
      :global ddnsinterface [/ip route get $int interface]
    }
  }
}


But the http request goes through the default gateway therefore the dyndns.org takes that IP and not the pppoe-out1 interface.

Is there any way to route mark this request?

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Z

Re: dynDNS Update Script

I have the script running successfully with one Internet facing interface.
I added a 2nd Internet link now the script picks the IP address second
one instead of the first one. I checked in the script there is no where
to specify the interface to check so how do i add it?

# Set needed variables
:local username "xxxxxx"
:local password "xxxxxx"
:local hostname "xxxx.xxx.com"
:global systemname [/system identity get name]

:set hostname "yourdomain2.dyndns.org"
}
:if ($systemname  = "Site3" ) do= {
:set hostname "yourdomain3.dyndns.org"
}

:global dyndnsForce

Look on this forum or wiki, there are different versions of this script that get their IP adress by different means (static interface name specification, etc).
RB450G - OpenWrt (so much more stable than with routerOS)
-> now: UBNT EdgeRouter Lite

(very unlikely to be MT customer again in the future)

Is it possible to avoid disk writes if no update is required?

So avoiding this part:
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]
thanks a lot,

Sure, if the public IP is configured right on the router you can just check the interface IP directly. The fetch only happens in case you're behind NAT and need to update a public IP you can't access locally directly.
Specific answers require specific questions. When in doubt, post the output of "/ip address print detail", "/ip route print detail", "/interface print detail", "/ip firewall export", and an accurate network diagram.

I found this snippet to get the IP however, it makes the script halt although the console does not indicate an error.
:foreach int in=[/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes ] do={
  :if ([:typeof [/ip route get $int routing-mark ]] != str ) do={
     :global ddnsinterface [/ip route get $int interface]
  }
}
A log statement (see below) before this snippet works, a log statement just after does not.
:log info "UpdateDynDNS TEST TEST TEST: currentIP = TEST A"
I'm going to try and mend it, but why does it halt the script when there are no errors? I'm not a profiecient programmer I'm afraid:)

I'm happy to report I've got a working script now (source code below). However, When forcing an update DynDns reports "nochg 84.194.xxx.xxx"

And thus it does not update the "Last Updated" timer, which may cause the account to expire. Anyone found a way around this?

}

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Thu Dec 15, 2011 3:27 pm

I currently have two RB450G devices. One will be used as a SSTP server and the other as a SSTP client.

I have used a script from a mikrotik wiki page using DDNS service from DYNDNS.org:
# Set needed variables
:local username "username"
:local password "password"
:local hostname "blahblahblah.dyndns.org"

:global dyndnsForce
:global previousIP 

# print some debug info
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: username = $username")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: password = $password")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: hostname = $hostname")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: previousIP = $previousIP")

# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]

# parse the current IP result
:local resultLen [:len $result]
:local startLoc [:find $result ": " -1]
:set startLoc ($startLoc + 2)
:local endLoc [:find $result "</body>" -1]
:local currentIP [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]
:log info "UpdateDynDNS: currentIP = $currentIP"

# Remove the # on next line to force an update every single time - useful for debugging,
# but you could end up getting blacklisted by DynDNS!

#:set dyndnsForce true

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html

:if (($currentIP != $previousIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
   :set dyndnsForce false
   :set previousIP $currentIP
   :log info "$currentIP or $previousIP"
   /tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" \
      src-path="nic/update?system=dyndns&hostname=$hostname&myip=$currentIP&wildcard=no" \
      dst-path="/dyndns.txt"
   :local result [/file get dyndns.txt contents]
   :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns update needed")
   :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
   :put ("Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
} else={
   :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: No dyndns update needed")
The script works great for my Dynamic IP SSTP server. However my Static SSTP client resolves the server Host name to IP address when applied and it does not update when the Dynamic IP of my SSTP server changes. I need to know how I can update the IP address of my Dynamic IP SSTP server into the address field for my SSTP client settings.

Is there a Guru out there that can help me. I can't imagine I'm the first person looking for an answer to this question.

Thank you

dynDNS Update Script

Fri Dec 16, 2011 11:20 pm

I have a interesting situation.

have one router/Mikrotik with multiple Dynamic connections.
1 DSL and one 1 Wireless.
one is set as primary and one is set as secondary.
Uses the dyndns script to update the dns for the router.

I would like to test to confirm that both interfaces are actually connected.
I would like to see about getting the dynamic dns script to test via a forced interface opposed to the default routed interfaces.

currently the line in the script shows as
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"

is their a way to tell the fetch command to use a particular interface?
such as
/tool fetch interface= eth1 mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"

any Ideas?

I would propose a clean workaround in one of 2 ways:

1. Create an update daemon for ROS (sources are out there - use ready made inadyn or whatever) and stop this script menace for once.
2. For security reasons, create a dns service for MT clients, so we don't use dyndns, although, I think dyndns is secure enough.

An, yes, Normis, I know - not planned, no time for this, no real neccesity, but still - please, pretty please.

I am working on a udp ddns update client for routeros that hopefully will make everyones lives easier. Will just be tied to the MAC / serial of the units and calls home with a lightweight udp packet. You then come to our site (ChangeIP.com) to tell us which units are yours and then you can tie them all together in your account.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Thu Jan 05, 2012 1:01 am

I have been trouble shooting a problem with a group of routers that use the script. When the script is run, it will log that no update is needed even though I can see that the resolved IP of the *dyndns.org domain is not the actual IP of the device.

I can manually force the update and it works just fine. Which means there is something going on with the if statement that decides if the update happens.

After looking at the script I have noticed that the script never checks to see if the update command successfully completes, but the script still changes the value of the previous IP variable. Meaning, the variable the script uses to compare the current IP with is getting updated even if the actual dyndns update isn't happening.

So if the below line of code ever does not get processed by the dyndns.org servers successfully, the scripts won't know this, but wills till proceed to alter the previous IP variable. So the next time the script is run, if will see the newly updated previous IP variable and compare it with the contents of the current IP variable. But the IP address in the dyndns entry will still be the previous IP before the last time the script ran.
/tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" \
      src-path="nic/update?system=dyndns&hostname=$hostname&myip=$currentIP&wildcard=no" \
      dst-path="/dyndns.txt"
I believe parsing the html page that is returned after executing this and testing to see if the word "good" appears and then containing the update of the previous IP variable in an if statement that checks if the result contains "good" should resolve this issue.

I have added this below the line above to help prevent this from happening.
    # parse the results of update
    :local resultLen [:len $result]
    :local startLoc [:find $result "Go" -1]
    :local endLoc [:find $result "od" -1]
    :local resultParse [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]
    :log info ("Update was successful: ".$resultParse)
    :if (($resultParse = "Good") do ={
	     :log info ("Update was successful: ".$resultParse)
        :set previousIP $currentIP
    } else={
        :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Update failed!")
    }
This block should catch to see if Good appears in the returned text, and if it does it will allow the previousIP variable to be updated. If it does not appear, it will not happen, but the next time the script is called it should trigger the update again.

Offer my version of the dynDNS Update script:
Script check the current IP address in DNS resolve for hostname, and if needed it change in dynDNS profile
# Set needed variables
:local username "YourUserName"
:local password "YourPassword"
:local hostname "YourHostName"

:global dyndnsForce

# print some debug info
#:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: username = $username")
#:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: password = $password")
#:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: hostname = $hostname")

# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]

# parse the current IP result
:local resultLen [:len $result]
:local startLoc [:find $result ": " -1]
:set startLoc ($startLoc + 2)
:local endLoc [:find $result "</body>" -1]
:local currentIP [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]
:log info "UpdateDynDNS: currentIP = $currentIP"

#get IP from DynDNS for our hostname
:local resolvedIP [:resolve $hostname]
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: resolved IP =$resolvedIP")

# Remove the # on next line to force an update every single time - useful for debugging, but you could end up getting blacklisted by DynDNS!
#:set dyndnsForce true

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details available at http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html
:if (($currentIP != $resolvedIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
    :set dyndnsForce false
    /tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" src-path="/nic/update?hostname=$hostname&myip=$currentIP" dst-path="/dyndns.txt"
    :local result [/file get dyndns.txt contents]
    :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns update needed")
    :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
    :put ("Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
} else={
    :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: No dyndns update needed")
}
Schedule it every 1 minute. It works for me perfectly on MikroTik RouterOS v5.xx ;)

better to use one of the dyndns nameservers to resolve the name
avoiding DNS cache

like this
:local resolvedIP [:resolve domain-name=$hostname server=204.13.248.75]

Note that performing a DNS query to see if the hostname needs updated is in breach of Dyn's policies, as is using checkip.dyndns.org every minute:
Unacceptable Client Behavior

* Send requests to or access anything other than /nic/update at the host members.dyndns.org.
* Reverse engineer web requests to our website to create or delete hostnames.
* Hardcode the IP address of any of the Dyn servers.
* Attempt to update after receiving the notfqdn, abuse, nohost, badagent, badauth, badsys return codes or repeated nochg return codes without user intervention.
* Perform DNS updates to determine whether the client IP needs to be updated.
* Access our web-based IP detection script (http://checkip.dyndns.com/) more than once every 10 minutes
Emphasis mine. Doing that may result in all RouterOS devices being blocked from submitting updates (Dyn do that for badly behaved user agents) and possibly even they'll stop reporting a valid value at checkip.dyndns.org.

This is indeed the problem with that script.
max connect limit reached. You have to get rid of checking checkip.dyndns.org every minute or you will keep having problems.

I think it shares my thoughts on this matter.
Just a single daemon, compiled from a ready-made source and integrated in ROs would have saved us from this thread.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Mon Mar 12, 2012 8:25 pm

I've rewritten [well, actually mostly written from scratch] a dyndns script.

The post is here: http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php ... 91#p306491

I have a few changes I'm working in still, but this should work just fine.
It does NOT do double-NAT, but it does stay within the TOS at DynDNS.
[i.e. It DOES keep IP state between reboots, thus preventing a "nochg" update for the first run after a reboot.]
You can run it as often as you like, even once a second.
It only writes to flash when an IP change occurs. The writes are also very small, so flash write exhaustion should be a very minimal issue, if one at all.

The code is extensively commented, so you should very easily find your way around.

I'm planning on adding it to the Wiki, but this is where things are for now.

Oh, final things:
It's written and tested on 5.12 only. I'd assume it should work on other releases, but I'm not sure which.
It was also written and tested on a RB-450G - again it should work on most anything, but I've spent no time validating on any other RB's.

Finally, if you use it and do so successfully, could you please contribute back by letting me know:
1) That it worked successfully.
2) What ROS hardware.
3) What ROS software version.
4) If you make changes, could you let me know what for, and if possible submit the code back.

Thanks,
Greg

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Sat May 05, 2012 2:16 pm

Hi,

When I change the firewall filter to drop all input on my gateway interface, I am not able to run this command successfully
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"

I got the error "while resolving ip: could not get answer from dns server"

I have tried to accept TCP and UDP port 53 but still not working. And what really puzzle me is I am actually at the internal LAN behind the firewall, why this still happen ? Mikrotic really gave a lot of surprises to me :? In the past, I can just configure what I want with simple few clicks, but now, to do a simple thing like this will take me hours if not days. :(

Any advise which port I should open ? Or what did I do wrong ?

if you drop everything on input, router cannot receive anything from the internet. first, accept established and related conections - that will allow all router-initiated sessions

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Tue Oct 30, 2012 12:53 am

Hi,

I am using Greg Sowell's DYNDns scripts for the vpn tunnels I am constructing.

http://gregsowell.com/?p=1523

and

http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Dynamic_D ... behind_NAT

the "behind nat" script works for me on 5.14 , but it has caveats:

uses DNSOMATIC :(



I would like to use a straight to DYNDNS script to :

A : update the Tik's wan IP to automatic on change of IP or a manually via run or a removal of if then else set of commands....a force update , if you will .



B: straight to Dyndns script for the resolving of local and remote host ips for policy and peer in vpn tunnels , with the router associated dst and src path updated, just the Sowell script minus the DNSOMATIC stuff.

The Sowell method works, but I pay for DYNDNS , and really want to take out the middle man in this setup.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Thu Nov 22, 2012 4:20 am

Using bits of script from this thread and Greg Sowell's tutorial and examples, I have a Tik with a DynDNS WAN and IPsec tunnels with DynDNs entries for both SA-Src and SA-Dst in each tunnel pointed back at the TIK


In the Tik scripts here,,,there is an IF , Then, Else portion for the Tik's WAN ....if no updated is needed after resolve, no action taken...and I use that for this Tik, even though it probably wont ever get another address....but just in case, its there.

I need close to the same thing for this code....

I am resolving both the local and the remote dyndns for each tunnel via a scheduled script every ten minutes and updating the policy and peer for each tunnel...in order.

Works great...but, every time it resolves, even if it gets the same result, it updates the peer and policy to every tunnel, resulting in new SA's i.e. tunnel setup. Every ten minutes.

I need to resolve every ten minutes because I am checking for an address change on failover at those tunnel ends.

So, can a fetch..check a variable, change if necessary script , if not leave alone script be written for each tunnel's local and remote site dyndns?

I think I am close, but a push in the right direction would be appreciated.

I am resolving the local site with a different variable for the same ip address for each tunnel ....it may not be needed, but it worked. It populates the peers and policies perfectly for all 20 tunnnels.

I would just like to change the tunnel ip addresses only when needed by a change after resolve.



add name="Tunnel 0" policy=\
    ftp,reboot,read,write,policy,test,winbox,password,sniff,sensitive,api \

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Sat Dec 01, 2012 12:45 am

I have a problem with the script for RouterOs5

http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Dynamic_D ... for_dynDNS

Please correct me if iam wrong.

But this script is writing into the flash everytime it is called.
It writes some files to the flash file system.

I think this is not good if the script runs every minute, this will damage the flash with the time.

I hope Mikrotik will do a free configurable DYNDNS client (wich only runs complete in the ram).

hi. i am trying to setup dyndns to rb750 without success.
the user details are correct since i am checking them on different routers.
these are the steps i followed.
-in winbox i created a new script called dynDNS. there i have added the script from the creator of this thread, but i chenged to my username/passwd/hostname
-then i clicked on the script to run now, to check if it is working. nothing happens. it does not make the correct resolution of the ip to hostname, since dyndns did not get the update.
-in terminal i added the script to run every 1 min.
-reboot

unfortunately dyndns it does not get the info of my new ip to resolve it, everytime i reboot.
how can i fix this issue?

Hi, I can confirm that following script works on rb751G-2HnD with RouterOS v5.24. However, remember to check that this script has proper line endings: \r\n. If you are unix or mac user and copied the script from webpage directly to winbox then it probably won't work. Before pasting use external text editor to convert line endings to \r\n.
Hope this helps.

Script [can also be found in earlier posts in this thread]:
# Set needed variables
:local username "xxxxxxxxxx"
:local password "yyyyyyyy"
:local hostname "yyyyyyyyyyyyy"
:global ddnsinterface "xxxxxxxxx e.g. pppoe-out1 xxxxxxx"
:global ddnsip ""

:global dyndnsForce
# Remove the # on next line to force an update every single time - useful for debugging, but you could end up getting blacklisted by DynDNS!
#:set dyndnsForce true

# Grab the current IP address on that interface.
:global ddnsip2 [/ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface ] address];
:set ddnsip [:pick $ddnsip2 0 [:find $ddnsip2 "/"]];
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: currentIP = $ddnsip")

#get IP from DynDNS for my hostname
:local resolvedIP [:resolve $hostname]
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: resolved IP =$resolvedIP")

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details available at http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html
:if (($ddnsip != $resolvedIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
    :set dyndnsForce false
    /tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" src-path="/nic/update?hostname=$hostname&myip=$ddnsip" dst-path="/dyndns.txt"
    :local result [/file get dyndns.txt contents]
    :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns update needed")
    :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
    :put ("Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
} else={

Just my version of the script. Runs on a RB750GL OS v5.20.
It probably could use some finetuning.
Remark: I used the Google nameserver for resolving. It was not working without it, have not figured out why yet. There is only a tiny delay when the IP changes.
Ramark 2: The interface 1 needs to be connected to the WAN (external IP). Because I'm not using the checkip service in case of NAT.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Sun Dec 07, 2014 3:22 pm

Hi all,
The script is working fine, but i've got "badauth" every times. I've checked username/pass, i can login to dyn services use with it.
BUT!
My dyn account's password contain special character, so, many hours later found a solution:
In the script use special characters with escape, as
:global ddnspass "pa\$\$word"
instead
:global ddnspass "pa$$word"
:)
Sorry if obvious for everyone, i am a newbie on MikroTik.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Tue Dec 23, 2014 11:32 am

I tried to setup dynDNS update but smthng goes wrong:
i tried all scripts
my hostname is NAME.HOMEIP.NET
my acc in dyn.com is SECONDNAME

as i thought, right script is:
# Define User Variables
:global ddnsuser "SECONDNAME"
:global ddnspass "PASSWORDtoDYN.COM"
:global ddnshost "NAME.homeip.net"

# Define Global Variables
:global ddnsip
:global ddnslastip
:if ([ :typeof $ddnslastip ] = nil ) do={ :global ddnslastip "0" }

:global ddnsinterface
:global ddnssystem ("mt-" . [/system package get system version] )

# Define Local Variables
:local int

# Loop thru interfaces and look for ones containing
# default gateways without routing-marks
:foreach int in=[/ip route find dst-address=0.0.0.0/0 active=yes ] do={
  :if ([:typeof [/ip route get $int routing-mark ]] != str ) do={
     :global ddnsinterface [/ip route get $int interface]
  }
}

# Grab the current IP address on that interface.
:global ddnsip [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface ] address ]

# Did we get an IP address to compare?
:if ([ :typeof $ddnsip ] = nil ) do={
   :log info ("DynDNS: No ip address present on " . $ddnsinterface . ", please check.")
} else={
  :if ($ddnsip != $ddnslastip) do={
    :log info "DynDNS: Sending UPDATE!"
    :local str "/nic/update?hostname=$ddnshost&myip=$ddnsip&wildcard=NOCHG&mx=NOCHG&backmx=NOCHG"
    /tool fetch address=members.dyndns.org src-path=$str mode=http user=$ddnsuser \
        password=$ddnspass dst-path=("/DynDNS.".$ddnshost)
    :delay 1
    :local str [/file find name="DynDNS.$ddnshost"];
    /file remove $str
    :global ddnslastip $ddnsip
  }
}
is it?

But it's not work.

Where is a mistake?

(edit)- got it working via another script i found that is for dyndns service.


just got my 2011UiAS-2HnD in and have it connected to the web and my local network seems working thus far. trying to get dyndns working. i've added the script listed below via the webgui and changed the variables that i'm aware need changing. i'm wanting to have the ip on my wan port updated to dyndns. i'm sure i'm leaving out some steps and would greatly appreciate help. loving the 2011UiAS-2HnD.



:global ddnsuser "theddnsusername"
:global ddnspass "theddnspassword"

:global ddnshost blabla.dyndns.org
:global ipddns [:resolve $ddnshost];

}
}

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Sun Jun 28, 2015 7:43 pm

I try to use a script to update the Dyn-dns, and none one of them does not run from the scheduler.

first:
:local username "login"
:local password "pass"
:global hostname "my.com" 

:global dyndnsForce
:global previousIP
:local resolvedIP [:resolve $hostname]

#print some debug
#:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: username = $username")
#:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: password = $password")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: hostname = $hostname")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: previousIP = $previousIP")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: resolvedIP = $resolvedIP")

# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]

# parse the current IP result
:local resultLen [:len $result]
:local startLoc [:find $result ": " -1]
:set startLoc ($startLoc + 2)
:local endLoc [:find $result "" -1]
:local currentIP [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]
:log info "UpdateDynDNS: currentIP = $currentIP"

# Remove the # on next line to force an update every single time - useful for debugging,
# but you could end up getting blacklisted by DynDNS!
# Edit: Not really needed anymore... the result is not equal... Update will happen.

#:set dyndnsForce true

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html
#This is where we check the DNS record against actual result. Thanks to jimstolz76
:if (($currentIP != $resolvedIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
  :set dyndnsForce false
  :set previousIP $currentIP
  /tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" \
  src-path="/nic/update?hostname=$hostname&myip=$currentIP" dst-path="/dyndns.txt"
  :local result [/file get dyndns.txt contents]
  :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns update needed")
  :log info ("Update Result: " . $result)
  :put ("Dyndns Update Result: " . $result)
} else= {
  :log info ("UpdateDynDNS: No dyndns update needed")
}
second:
# Define User Variables
:global ddnsuser "user"
:global ddnspass "passwd"
:global ddnshost "domain.com"
:global ddnsinterface "beeline-l2tp"
:global ddnsip
:global ddnslastip
:if ([:typeof $ddnslastip] = nil) do={ :global ddnslastip "0.0.0.0/0" }  
# Grab the current IP address on that interface.
:global ddnsip [/ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface] address]
:if ([:typeof $ddnsip] = nil) do={
  :log info ("DynDNS: No ip address present on " . $ddnsinterface . ", please check.")
} else={
  :if ($ddnsip != $ddnslastip) do={
    :log info "DynDNS: Previous IP was: $ddnslastip"
    :log info "DynDNS: Sending new IP:$ddnsip UPDATE!"
    /tool fetch keep-result=no url="http://$ddnsuser:$ddnspass@204.13.248.112/nic/update\?hostname=$ddnshost"
    :global ddnslastip $ddnsip
 } else={
:log info "DDNS: No update required."
  }
}
run from the console script works OK. access rights everywhere exhibited maximum.
what am I doing wrong?

I'm trying to configure automatic updates DNS from Dyn-DNS.
I took as a basis for two of the script. I add them to the scheduler, exposing the maximum rights. no one does not run.
the script only works if i run it from the console.

first
:global ddnsuser "user"
:global ddnspass "passwd"
:global theinterface "beeline-l2tp"
:global ddnshost devabap.com
:global ipddns [:resolve $ddnshost];
:global ipfresh [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$theinterface ] address ]
:if ([ :typeof $ipfresh ] = nil ) do={
   :log info ("DynDNS: No ip address on $theinterface .")
} else={
   :for i from=( [:len $ipfresh] - 1) to=0 do={ 
      :if ( [:pick $ipfresh $i] = "/") do={ 
    :set ipfresh [:pick $ipfresh 0 $i];
      } 
}
 
:if ($ipddns != $ipfresh) do={
    :log info ("DynDNS: IP-DynDNS = $ipddns")
    :log info ("DynDNS: IP-Fresh = $ipfresh")
   :log info "DynDNS: Update IP needed, Sending UPDATE...!"
   :global str "/nic/update\?hostname=$ddnshost&myip=$ipfresh&wildcard=NOCHG&mx=NOCHG&backmx=NOCHG"
   /tool fetch address=members.dyndns.org src-path=$str mode=http user=$ddnsuser \
         password=$ddnspass dst-path=("/DynDNS.".$ddnshost)
    :delay 1
    :global str [/file find name="DynDNS.$ddnshost"];
    /file remove $str
    :global ipddns $ipfresh
  :log info "DynDNS: IP updated to $ipfresh!"
    } else={
     :log info "DynDNS: dont need changes";
    }
} 
second
# Define User Variables
:global ddnsuser "user"
:global ddnspass "passwd"
:global ddnshost "devabap.com"
:global ddnsinterface "beeline-l2tp"
:global ddnsip
:global ddnslastip
:if ([:typeof $ddnslastip] = nil) do={ :global ddnslastip "0.0.0.0/0" }  
# Grab the current IP address on that interface.
:global ddnsip [/ip address get [/ip address find interface=$ddnsinterface] address]
:if ([:typeof $ddnsip] = nil) do={
  :log info ("DynDNS: No ip address present on " . $ddnsinterface . ", please check.")
} else={
  :if ($ddnsip != $ddnslastip) do={
    :log info "DynDNS: Previous IP was: $ddnslastip"
    :log info "DynDNS: Sending new IP:$ddnsip UPDATE!"
    /tool fetch keep-result=no url="http://$ddnsuser:$ddnspass@204.13.248.112/nic/update\?hostname=$ddnshost"
    :global ddnslastip $ddnsip
 } else={
:log info "DDNS: No update required."
  }
}
and script screen

Pictures of the script can be seen that it is run - the counter increases.

I have the same problem, my dyndns hostname stopped updating. I 've tried about 8 different scripts and none of them worked. I have a dual wan setup on my rb750gl but a while ago dyndns worked fine. Does anybody know what happened?

I don't know what happened, but I noticed the same problem and hit it with a hammer of suitable size.

Also the global previousIP doesn't appear to persist between invocations of the script.

I have made, and tested, two changes to the script:
  1. instead of the /fetch command in the quoted script I generate a URL as specified by Dyn.com here: http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html. This works for me.
  1. To address the persistence issue I have written code to parse dyndns.txt to extract the IP address or set it to "0.0.0.0" if the file doesn't exist.
Apologies if the format is funny, this is my first post and I don't understand the formatting controls...

Regards
Graeme

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Wed Jul 22, 2015 2:59 pm

@gbr - thank you very much for posting this. I kind of works for me.... have a couple of questions. Note: I am a novice at scripting and still learning.

So I have poured over this sever times - it has been a great learning opportunity. As I understand it this -
# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyn.com" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:delay 1
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]
goes out to dyndns, grabs the ip address from the hostname and then creates a file named "dyndns.checkip.html". I assumed this should be what shows up on your dyndns hosts page. Mine does not...

Also - what does the :local result command do?

When I manually change (break) the IP address on the dyndns page to say 1.1.1.1 - it pulls the old IP address still. When I do an nslookup on the hostname it is correct @ 1.1.1.1.

So when the compare if statement runs - it makes no changes because currentIP and previousIP are the same.

If I delete the dyndns.txt file and the dyndns.checkip.html file the script works - but only the first time I run it.

Further - If I issue global resolvedIP [:resolve $hostname] - it will pull the correct dyndns address of 1.1.1.1

Is that why mine does not work - is this a dyndns issue? Any help appreciated.

starting from v6.30 you have to specify host=members.dyndns.org for this to work
or i guess is a bug...

No. Go to http://checkip.dyn.com in a browser and you'll see that it returns the current IP address of your Internet connection.
Also - what does the :local result command do?
Declares a local variable named "result".

If you're asking about the rest of the command in the script, it copies the contents of the file named "dyndns.checkip.html" into the variable.
When I manually change (break) the IP address on the dyndns page to say 1.1.1.1 - it pulls the old IP address still. When I do an nslookup on the hostname it is correct @ 1.1.1.1.

So when the compare if statement runs - it makes no changes because currentIP and previousIP are the same.
See above. You are misinterpreting the purpose of checkip.dyn.com.
If I delete the dyndns.txt file and the dyndns.checkip.html file the script works - but only the first time I run it.
Look at the contents of both dyndns.txt and dyndns.checkip.html after a script run.

In particular, if dyndns.txt has anything other than "good <ip address>" (signifying a successful update) or "nochg <ip address>" (signifying that no update is required) go to https://help.dyn.com/remote-access-api/return-codes/ and work out why the update was unsuccessful.

For debugging try putting in some ":log info ..." commands to put the values of various variables in the log file and watch while the script runs to see that they are as expected.
Further - If I issue global resolvedIP [:resolve $hostname] - it will pull the correct dyndns address of 1.1.1.1

Is that why mine does not work - is this a dyndns issue? Any help appreciated.
Sounds as if resolve is acting as expected - doing a DNS lookup on your host name. I doubt that it's a dyn.com error.

I have the script I provided working successfully on three routers.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Thu Sep 10, 2015 4:42 am

I need some help. I have a dual PPPOE WAN set-up. I have modified a few scripts on here to make my own. I can't seem to find a proper dyndns script for a dual wan set-up. My one WAN I use to service all of my ports, my second WAN I would still like it's IP updated to a separate alias on DynDNS just for a just in case. Maybe my first WAN fails and I want to come in on the second one. None of the services are important to make an elaborate fail over system, I just want DynDNS to have both IP's. Here is what I got so far...

:local ddnsuser "******"
:local ddnspass "*******"
:local theinterface1 "********"
:local theinterface2 "*********"
:local ddnshost1 "**********"
:local ddnshost2 "*********"
:local ipddns1 [:resolve $ddnshost1];
:local ipddns2 [:resolve $ddnshost2];
:local ipfresh1 [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$theinterface1 ] address ]
:local ipfresh2 [ /ip address get [/ip address find interface=$theinterface2 ] address ]
:if ([ :typeof $ipfresh1 ] = nil ) do={
:log info ("DynDNS1: No ip address on $theinterface1 .")
} else={
:for i from=( [:len $ipfresh1] - 1) to=0 do={
:if ( [:pick $ipfresh1 $i] = "/") do={
:set ipfresh1 [:pick $ipfresh1 0 $i];
}
}

:if ($ipddns1 != $ipfresh1) do={
:log info ("DynDNS1: IP-DynDNS = $ipddns1")
:log info ("DynDNS1: IP-Fresh = $ipfresh1")
:log info "DynDNS1: Update IP needed, Sending UPDATE...!"
:local str "/nic/update?hostname=$ddnshost1&myip=$ipfresh1&wildcard=NOCHG&mx=NOCHG&backmx=NOCHG"
/tool fetch address=members.dyndns.org src-path=$str mode=http user=$ddnsuser \
password=$ddnspass dst-path=("/DynDNS.".$ddnshost1)
:delay 1
:local str [/file find name="DynDNS.$ddnshost1"];
/file remove $str
:global ipddns1 $ipfresh1
:log info "DynDNS1: IP updated to $ipfresh1!"
} else={
:log info "DynDNS1: dont need changes";
}
}

:if ([ :typeof $ipfresh2 ] = nil ) do={
:log info ("DynDNS2: No ip address on $theinterface2 .")
} else={
:for i from=( [:len $ipfresh2] - 1) to=0 do={
:if ( [:pick $ipfresh2 $i] = "/") do={
:set ipfresh2 [:pick $ipfresh2 0 $i];
}
}

:if ($ipddns2 != $ipfresh2) do={
:log info ("DynDNS2: IP-DynDNS = $ipddns2")
:log info ("DynDNS2: IP-Fresh = $ipfresh2")
:log info "DynDNS2: Update IP needed, Sending UPDATE...!"
:local str "/nic/update?hostname=$ddnshost2&myip=$ipfresh2&wildcard=NOCHG&mx=NOCHG&backmx=NOCHG"
/tool fetch address=members.dyndns.org src-path=$str mode=http user=$ddnsuser \
password=$ddnspass dst-path=("/DynDNS.".$ddnshost2)
:delay 1
:local str [/file find name="DynDNS.$ddnshost2"];
/file remove $str
:global ipddns2 $ipfresh2
:log info "DynDNS2: IP updated to $ipfresh2!"
} else={
:log info "DynDNS2: dont need changes";
}
}


So far it works great with one minor hiccup. One of the address' will always resolve incorrectly. Even though if I ping the address I get the proper IP back. Microtik always resolves the wrong address and thinks it requires an update. It is updating both address just find, I'm just worried DynDNS will black list me because of a minutely update. It always comes up...
DynDNS2: IP-DynDNS = old ip from a while ago
DynDNS2: IP-Fresh = Proper IP as obtained from the interface
Update require
continues to update.

The update process for both interfaces goes through without a problem and I can resolve the host no problem. Just for some reason the script doesn't resolve the ip properly and forces an unrequired update.

It seems to have fixed itself overnight. Now it resolves both hosts no problem. I have been reading that these routers some times have issues with dns holding on to cached sites? Is this possible my issue?

dynDNS Update Script

Thu Sep 10, 2015 12:46 pm

I figured my own issue out. I realized I had the dyndns ttl set to 4 hours, so the router was holding on to the cached DNS value for 4 hours. I set it back done to 60 seconds, now it only does it for a max of 60 seconds.

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Thu Dec 31, 2015 10:14 pm

I have the RB2011UiAS running version 6.33.3, and I'm having issues getting the scheduler to run my dynDNS script.

I've seen a couple others having issues scheduling their script.
Mine won't work, and I don't think I can blame the scheduler.
When ran from the terminal, the feedback is "no such item"

I have my script named exactly "dynDNS"
I can run the script under the script configuration window in the script list, and it works properly.
It properly logs that it updated my DNS server, and it also shows successfully updated in my dyn.com account.

So the script is there. The file really does exist.
Does anybody know why I might get this result in the terminal?

Re: dynDNS Update Script

Sat Apr 23, 2016 2:11 pm

If anyone still having problem updating dynDNS, here is a working code i've tried with some help of others in many forums and article, i've tried this on RouterBoard 750G r2 ver. 3.23

# Set needed variables
:local username "DYNDNSUSER"
:local password "DYNDNSPASSWORD"
:local hostname "DYNDNSHOSTNAME"
:local previousIP [:put [:resolve $hostname]];
:delay 1
:global dyndnsForce
:global previousIP

# print some debug info
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: username = $username")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: password = $password")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: hostname = $hostname")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: previousIP = $previousIP")

# get the current IP address from the internet (in case of double-nat)
/tool fetch mode=http address="checkip.dyndns.org" src-path="/" dst-path="/dyndns.checkip.html"
:delay 1
:local result [/file get dyndns.checkip.html contents]

# parse the current IP result
:local resultLen [:len $result]
:local startLoc [:find $result ": " -1]
:set startLoc ($startLoc + 2)
:local endLoc [:find $result "</body>" -1]
:local currentIP [:pick $result $startLoc $endLoc]
:log info "UpdateDynDNS: currentIP = $currentIP"

# Remove the # on next line to force an update every single time - useful for debugging,
# but you could end up getting blacklisted by DynDNS!

#:set dyndnsForce true

# Determine if dyndns update is needed
# more dyndns updater request details http://www.dyndns.com/developers/specs/syntax.html

:if (($currentIP != $previousIP) || ($dyndnsForce = true)) do={
:set dyndnsForce false
:set previousIP $currentIP
:log info "$currentIP or $previousIP"
/tool fetch user=$username password=$password mode=http address="members.dyndns.org" \
src-path="nic/update?system=dyndns&hostname=$hostname&myip=$currentIP&wildcard=no" \
dst-path="/dyndns.txt"
:delay 1
:local result [/file get dyndns.txt contents]
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns update needed")
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
:put ("Dyndns Update Result: ".$result)
} else={
:log info ("UpdateDynDNS: No dyndns update needed")
}

I figured my own issue out. I realized I had the dyndns ttl set to 4 hours, so the router was holding on to the cached DNS value for 4 hours. I set it back done to 60 seconds, now it only does it for a max of 60 seconds.

What does it mean dyndns ttl set to 4 hours?
I looked around WINBOX and could not find a dyndns ttl? Is this prior to 4.61 syntax?

By the way this chaps script (cormac) seemed decent for my situation dual wan.
My one concern is that I am not sure if the information being sent is encrypted or not and should I worry?
I am using the update key provided vice password.
I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)

Re: dynDNS Update Script

I have made this script ddns.rsc, It's allow you to use dynDNS or Dynu with several dynamic domains and via specific interface(s)...
:local ddns do={
	:local dynhost
	:local dynurlv

	:if (([:len $provider]=0) or ([:len $host]=0) or ([:len $username]=0) or ([:len $password]=0)) do={
		:error "missing parameters"
	}

	:if ($provider="dynu") do={
		:set dynhost "api.dynu.com"
		:set dynurlv "/nic/update?hostname=$host"
	}
	:if ($provider="dyndns") do={
		:set dynhost "members.dyndns.org"
		:set dynurlv "/nic/update?hostname=$host&wildcard=NOCHG&mx=NOCHG&backmx=NOCHG"
	}
	:set dynhost [:resolve $dynhost];

   :local wanGateway do={
    	:if ([:len [/ip dhcp-client find where interface=[:tostr $1]]]>0) do={
    		:return [/ip dhcp-client get [find interface=[:tostr $1]] gateway]
    	} else={
    		:return [$1]
    	}
    }

	# All return codes
	:global resultcodes {
		good="Update successful";
    	nochg="Update not needed, WARNING: repeated attempts may cause you to be blocked.";
    	badauth="The username and password pair do not match a real user.";
    	notfqdn="The hostname specified is not a fully-qualified domain name.";
    	nohost="The hostname specified does not exist in this user account.";
    	numhost="Too many hosts (more than 20) specified in an update.";
    	abuse="The hostname specified is blocked for update abuse.";
    	badagent="The user agent was not sent or HTTP method is not permitted.";
    	dnserr="DNS error encountered.";
    	911="There is a problem or scheduled maintenance on our side."
	}

	:log info ("updating dynamic dns '$host' from '$provider' ...");
	:if (([:len [/interface find name=$interface]]>0) and ([/interface get value-name=disabled $interface]=no)) do={
		/ip route add distance=1 gateway=[$wanGateway $interface] dst-address=$dynhost comment="updating '$host' via '$interface'"
		:delay 800ms;
	}
	/tool fetch address=$dynhost src-path=$dynurlv mode=http user=$username password=$password dst-path=("$provider.$host")

	:delay 2s
	:if ([:len [/file find name=("$provider.$host")]]>0) do={
		:local result [/file get value-name=contents [/file find name=("$provider.$host")]]
		# Separate return code from IP address
		:for i from=0 to=( [:len $result] - 1) do={
			:if ( [:pick $result $i] = " ") do={
				:set result [:pick $result 0 $i]
			}
		}
		:foreach resultcode,desc in=$resultcodes do={
			:if ($result=$resultcode) do={
				:log warning ("$provider ($host): $desc")
			}
		}
	} else={
		:log error ("Update dynamic dns '".$host."' failed...");
	}
	/file remove [/file find name=("$provider.$host")]
	/ip route remove [/ip route find where comment="updating '$host' via '$interface'"]
}

:do {
	## Configuration file
	:local fconfig [:parse [/system script get "ddns.cfg" source]]
	:local cfg [$fconfig]
	:local HOSTS ($cfg->"hosts")
	:local ACCOUNTS ($cfg->"accounts")
	## Foreach HOSTS
	:foreach Host in=[:toarray $HOSTS] do={
		:local wan
		:local dynprov
		:local dynhost
		:local dynuser
		:local dynpass
		:if ([:len [:pick $Host (-1) ([:find $Host "|"])]]>0) do={
			:set wan [:pick $Host 0 ([:find $Host "|"])]
			:set dynprov [:pick $Host ([:find $Host "|"]+1) [:find $Host "@"]]
			:set dynhost [:pick $Host ([:find $Host "@"]+1) [:len $Host]]
		} else={
			:set dynprov [:pick $Host 0 [:find $Host "@"]]
			:set dynhost [:pick $Host ([:find $Host "@"]+1) [:len $Host]]
		}
		:if ([:len [:pick $ACCOUNTS (-1) ([:find $ACCOUNTS "|"])]]>0) do={
			:foreach account in=[:toarray $ACCOUNTS] do={
				:if ([:pick $account 0 [:find $account "|"]]=$dynprov) do={
					:set dynuser [:pick $account ([:find $account "|"]+1) [:find $account "@"]]
					:set dynpass [:pick $account ([:find $account "@"]+1) [:len $account]]
				}
			}
		} else={
			:set dynuser [:pick $ACCOUNTS 0 [:find $ACCOUNTS "@"]]
			:set dynpass [:pick $ACCOUNTS ([:find $ACCOUNTS "@"]+1) [:len $ACCOUNTS]]
		}
		:if ((([:len $interface]=0) and ([:len $wan]=0)) or ($wan=$interface)) do={
			$ddns provider=$dynprov host=$dynhost username=$dynuser password=$dynpass interface=$wan
		}
	}
}
Include configuration file ddns.cfg
:local config {
	"hosts"="dynu@YOURDOMAIN,dyndns@YOURDOMAIN,INTERFACE|dynu@YOURDOMAIN";
	"accounts"="dyndns|USERNAME@PASSWORD,dynu|USERNAME@PASSWORD";
	"storage"="";
}
return $config
If you using PPPOE or any PPP connection you can add script into PPP profile while connected and do like this for automatic update:
/interface pppoe-client monitor INTERFACE once do={
	:local uptime ([:tonum [:pick [:tostr $uptime] 0 2]]*60*60+[:tonum [:pick [:tostr $uptime] 3 5]]*60+[:tonum [:pick [:tostr $uptime] 6 8]])
}
:if ($uptime<3) do={
	/system script run ddns
}
