HOW TO SET UP SAFEDNS ON ROUTERS WITH STATICS AND DYNAMICS IP ADDRESSES USING IPv6 (Beta Release)

Router with static IP address configuration

1. Change your router’s DNS servers to our IPv6 addresses - 2001:67c:2778::3939 and 2001:67c:2778::3940

Go to the router’s settings page, click the 'Advanced' tab, and choose IPv6 in the left menu. Choose 'IPv6 setup' and type in our DNS servers' addresses. 

 

2. Go to SafeDNS Dashboard > Settings and copy your IP address to the 'Enter an IP-address or DynDNS' box. Then click 'Add'.

You have successfully configured your router.

Router with Dynamic IP address configuration.

In case you have a Dynamic IP address, you need to configure the DynDNS/DDNS on the router using a third-party Dynamic DNS service.

1. In the router setting, go to DynDNS/DDNS settings,

2. Check the DynDNS service available for your router. If available, we recommend using the No-IP DynDNS service provider.

3. Go to noip.com and sign up

 

4. In your No-IP account, create a hostname for IPv6 (any name you want)

5. Go back to your router and configure DDNS/DynDNS 

6. Add the created hostname in Dashboard > Settings and click 'Add'.

Once added, you will see it in the DynDNS section of the Dashboard

You have successfully configured your router.

_____________________________________________________

In rare cases when your router does not have a DynDNS/DDNS setting and your IP is Dynamic, you need to use third-party software - DDclient on the PC connected to the network.

- Set up DNS servers in your router:

- Install DDclient - https://www.safedns.com/en/guides/dynamic-ip-ddclient/ - on a PC connected to the network.
