If you find our Easyfind service not being enough for you, you might want to use for example http://www.dyndns.com.

To update DynDNS with your external IP you need to install a DynDNS client on Bubba. Follow these steps:

  1. Access your bubba via SSH (see Howto/Access Server via SSH for information how to accomplish this)
  2. Change to the user root:
    su
    When asked for password, type excito and press enter
  3. Install the application ddclient:
    apt-get install ddclient
  1. Optional step, edit the config file to match your DynDNS settings:
    nano /etc/ddclient.conf
  1. Restart the client program:
    /etc/init.d/ddclient restart


Thats all!
