Running on Gentoo with OpenRC

To run this script on Gentoo with OpenRC, you should emerge the ``dnsimple-dyndns`` package:

# emerge -av dnsimple-dyndns

Then add the following function to your ``/etc/conf.d/net`` file (or edit your postup function,
if already exists):

postup() {
if [[ "${IFACE}" = "enp3s0" ]]; then
einfo "Updated DNS record: $(dnsimple-dyndns your-domain-token home)"
einfo "Ignoring interface: ${IFACE}"

Replace ``enp3s0`` with your WAN interface, ```` with your managed domain,
``your-domain-token`` with your domain token
(see and ``home`` with your
desired DNS record name.
