DynDNS Service plug-in updated to intercept dyndns.org (Dyn.com) updates from Internet/NAT routers

Wednesday, 11 January 2017

We have just added a new option to the DynDNS Service plug-in for Simple DNS Plus, which allows you to intercept dyndns.org (Dyn.com) updates.

Many Internet/NAT routers (and other devices) have a built-in function to update a dyndns service (a.k.a. "ddns") whenever the public IP address changes. This is often hard-coded to use a few specific dyndns providers / update formats, and dyndns.org (Dyn.com) is typically one of these.
With Simple DNS Plus (on a public static IP address), you can now run your own dyndns service and pretend to be dyndns.org (Dyn.com) - and have such routers update it.
Read how to configure this at https://simpledns.com/kb/66
The updated plug-in "DynDnsPlugIn.dll" file can be downloaded from https://github.com/jhsoftware/sdns-DynDns/releases
Place this file in the "c:\Program Files\Simple DNS Plus\PlugIns" directory (overwriting the existing file) to update.
The updated plug-in will also be included in the future builds of Simple DNS Plus (v. 6.0 build 119 and later).
We have also open sourced the DynDNS Services plug-in - the source code is available at GitHub: https://github.com/jhsoftware/sdns-DynDns
The plug-in is released into the public domain as open source. You are most welcome to fork the source code, contribute code enhancements, and/or use the source code as a starting point for developing your own plug-ins.
