TinyDYN provides a package for creating and using dynamic DNS services.
TinyDYN is a package of client and server software for operating dynamic DNS services.
It enables anyone to run dynamic DNS services using strong authentication or to be a client of someone using TinyDYN as a dynamic IP management system.
The clients can communicate directly by UDP with the server, by email, or by any other transport the admin can imagine, as the mechanism is quite straightforward.
The services use strong authentication via GnuPG, and is designed to work with djbdns's tinydns for name service.
Because TinyDYN uses GPG instead of shared passwords, you will have to create a GPG sign-only key for sending your requests to your dynamic DNS service provider.
This keyring (kept in /etc/tinydyn/gnupg/) contains secret information that must be protected in the same way that a configuration file containing a password would be.
What's New in This Release:
· tinydyn now runs cleanly under daemontools
· Logging output was cleaned up to make it more sensible
· service/ files are provided for daemontools
· Numerous error detection bugs replaced due to syntax error
