This guide shows how to install ddclient software in case you have a Dynamic IP address and your router does not have a Dynamic DNS feature.
You need to change your network settings as described in the SafeDNS setup guide on Windows 10 to start using our DNS.
Install ddclient (download link)
Click "Next" until your reach the "Select Dynamic DNS server" window (see screenshot below).
In the "Client hostname" field, enter any preferred name.
In the "Dynamic DNS server" field, enter www.safedns.com
In the "Connection" field, select HTTPS
Continue clicking "Next" until the setup process is finished.
After installation, you can check if the IP address is successfully bound to service in the ddclient.log file. There should be a line like this:
SUCCESS: updating mycomputername: good: IP address set to 188.8.131.52
On Windows 10 you can find the log file here:
On Windows 7:
On Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Local Settings\Application Data\ddclient.log
C:\Documents and Settings\NetworkService\Local Settings\Application Data\ddclient.log
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\ddclient.log
If the log file is correct, the DD Client table in Dashboard > Settings > Devices (link) will be updated automatically.
