dynamic dns update client module that tries to be extensible, re-usable and efficient on network resources

Project description


dyndnsc is both a script to be used directly as well as a re-usable and hopefully extensible collection of classes for doing updates to dynamic dns services.


  • updating a dyndns entry is done by a “DynDNS Update Protocol handler”

  • detecting IPs, both in DNS or elsewhere is done using IPDetector’s which all have a detect() method and bookkeeping about changes

  • the DynDnsClient uses the Protocol Handler to do the updates and the IPDetectors to decide when an update needs to occur

  • a dummy endless loop ( used for time.sleep() ) repeatedly asks the DynDnsClient to make sure everything is fine


  • relatively easy to embed in your own application (see main() for an example)

  • Growl desktop notification support (optional)

Example use:

python  --hostname --userid bob       --method=Iface,netmask:2001:0000::/32,iface:tun0,family:INET6


probably works with python 2.3, 2.4 tested with python 2.5, 2.6 and 2.7
