Possible to run a DDNS Server on Win 2000

Postby Tony_P » 12. March 2005 04:54

I have been reading around some, and evrything works around with DNS and Not DDNS, I was wondering if anyone has tried this and if they have tried it on Win2000 Pro?

Hi tony_P,
Please explain what you mean...

DDNS = Dynamic DNS, as in changing IPs due to home DSL ?
If so, yes I have done it on win2k and XP, and it works just fine all the time. Just need to give the machine the appropriate name (on network), or re-direction domain (on internet).

What I would like to do is take out the Middle man like Dyndns, or TZO, Go Daddt and such , and run my own DNS server, without the cost of having to load Win2000 server or 2003 server. Is that feasible on a win2000 pro machine?

Feasible, but it'd be too much of a bother.
Win2k/2k3 server, or linux (any distro) would be a better choice.

Thats what I figured, :roll: no big deal, Now to decide where to park the Domain name, Any good ones out there, I am using Dyndns right now, and I have looked at Go Daddy , the latter is registered in InterNIC and Icann, where Dyndns are not, any other good ones out there that are reliable????

Sure you can run your own DDNS server on 2000-2003 server. IIS does have some limitations though that prevents standard update formats like those of no-ip and dyndns.org.

You simplest bet for 2000-2003 server is to use a pre made package like MintDNS (http://www.dyndnsservices.com) MintDNS has solved all the standard update incompatabilities found in IIS. The creators of MintDNS used to run the address.net DNS service many years ago, and was one of the first along side ml.org and dynip.com. They boast some services using MintDNS provide dns services to millions of users. The software leans towards the DVR IP camera market, but can be easily modified to suite any needs you may have. At $250.00 I think its a steal.

There sre also some pre made Linux packages like GNUDIP,

Also I have tried this before, and the DNS WMI will not accomidate very many users. Your best choice for Windows server is to use GSS-TSIG which is what MintDNS uses, but was a little beyond my understanding.

Anyhow best of luck with your project.
