Marcs Updater

There have been some reports about issues with the Updater not updating anymore. Please try the latest beta version and switch to another IP Check provider instead of the previous default dnsomatic.com. For some reason they are rate-limiting the number of requests to their service. The new IP Check provider selection allows you to choose another provider in such cases. You can test the functionality with the new "Test" panel.

If you want to add a custom provider to the unstable testing version, store a JSON file like the following under %PROGRAMDATA%\Marcs Updater\ServiceProviders\dyndns.json:

    "name": "DynDNS.org (Test)",
    "endpoint": "https://members.dyndns.org/nic/update",
    "method": "GET",
    "queryString": "hostname={HOSTNAME}&myip={MYIP}",
    "dataPayload": "",
    "defaults": {
        "username": "test",
        "password": "test",
        "hostname": "test1.customtest.dyndns.org"

Supported query and payload tags are {USERNAME}, {PASSWORD}, {HOSTNAME} and {MYIP}. Restart the background service and foreground application to apply any changes.

Please add inwx.de DynDNS service: https://dyndns.inwx.com/nic/update?myip=
Or maybe add an option to specify the URL yourself?

Is it possible to filter out updating IP address if/when I use a VPN ... for my particular scenario I'm using the VPN for outgoing connections, but the incoming IP (because it's actually via a gateway) is still on the non-VPN IP address...?

Thank you for the awesome software.

Would you be able to add Dynu.com to the DNS Service Provider list?

Dynu uses the same protocol as Dyn and the update server is api.dynu.com. An example URL looks like this:


The detailed IP update protocol is available at https://www.dynu.com/en-US/DynamicDNS/IP-Update-Protocol.

Help Help Help !

Habe eine echt verzwickte Frage bei Problemlösung werde ich gerne eine grosszügige Donation machen :-))

Mein Netzwerk zuhause ist an einen DSL Router angeschlosen. Jetzt möchte ich zusätzlich noch einen LTE-Router einbinden, der kann aber kein Internet sondern NUR ausschliesslich VPN (alles ausser PPTP und IPSec wird beim Provider verworfen). Damin komme ich dann von aussen in mein Netzwerk und habe einen viel schnelleren Upload als mit der DSL-Verbindung.

Jetzt zur FRAGE:

Der LTE-Router erhält öffentliche dynamische IPs, kann diese jedoch nicht zum DynDNS-Host (no-ip) melden, da er ja keine echte Internetverbindung hat. Die Meldung müsst über den DSL-Gateway erfolgen. Wie kann man das Problem lösen??

Antworten sind willkommen an: falamoe@t-online.de

Cheers, Benselma

Hi Marc,

Great little tool.

I use GoogleDNS. It has the same protocol as Dyn. -- Dyndns-protocol. I like it because each domain has a login and password, while DYN only allows one.

Any possibility to support?

Or, I also have a provider that takes an https URL get for an update.

I was wondering if you would be able to add namecheap.com DDNS support? Here's a link to Namecheap's settings for use with ddclient -> https://www.namecheap.com/support/knowledgebase/article.aspx/583/11/how-do-i-configure-ddclient

I use ddclient on all my linux boxes, but have been looking for a Windows program that runs as a service.
Many thanks for your work so far!

tolles Programm.
Vielen Dank dafür.

Zwei Sachen:

1. Der Update Server von spdyn.de sollte update.spdyn.de lauten. (Ich bekomme diese Meldung im Webinterface von spdyn.de
[ Bitte verwenden Sie als Update-Server in Ihrem Client "update.spdyn.de" (Aktuelle Einstellung: www.spdns.de) ]

2. Nach Möglichkeit entweder dynv6 als Anbieter mit einbinden - oder alternativ die Möglichkeit eigene benutzerdefinierte Dienstleister zu implementieren.

Besten Gruß
