Walkthrough of the configuration of the dynamic DNS for an easier access to your home network when you are not there

One more article about controlling your home network with the raspberry pi router. This article is the sequel of "Creating a wireless router...".

In this "episode", I will walkthrough the configuration of the dynamic DNS for an easier access to your home network when you are not there!

For this, you need to create an account in and then create an a record on the Dynamic DNS section of the site. After this, click on "Wget Script". On the downloaded file, you will see something like this:

wget -q --read-timeout=0.0 --waitretry=5 --tries=400 

The DNS update token is represented above as UPDATETOKEN.

Next step is:

sudo apt-get install inadyn

Edit the file "/etc/inadyn.conf" with the following content, replacing USER, PASSWORD, HOSTNAME, UPDATE_TOKEN.

--username USER
--password PASSWORD
--updateperiod 60000
--forcedupdateperiod 320000

Then, add the update instruction to root crontab:

sudo crontab -e
*/10 * * * * /usr/sbin/inadyn

The last step is to configure your root to Forward the network traffic into your rooter ip. You can check "/var/log/syslog" for errors on the update.

Next step for me is configure the openvpn to allow full network access to the others raspberries.

If you like this, share it and it will be like a bookmark for your future remembering.
