DD-WRT + dns.he.net (DDNS / inadyn)

25 May 2015

The DD-WRT wiki hilariously has a page about this, but it’s not very helpful and account creation is entirely disabled, so here goes a blog post for my own future reference:

In the dns.he.net control panel, enable the hostname (HOSTNAME) for “dynamic dns”. Click the DDNS icon and generate a “key” (KEY), which will be used as the password for updating.

In the DD-WRT control panel, under “Setup > DDNS” (at least in Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (02/19/14) std):

Whala.

Update (2015-08-19):

ddclient.conf:

protocol=dyndns2
use=if
if=eth0
server=dyn.dns.he.net
ssl=no
login=HOSTNAME
password=KEY
HOSTNAME
