      Dynamic DNS

      I'm trying to set up dynamic dns on my black (mk2?) sky router but seem to be having problems. It would appear that I can only have dyndns.org as the supplier (unless you can tell me differently!) which then forwards to dyndns.com. Now I have got an account set up there but my router says 'Not Fully Qualified Domain Name: notfqdn ' when I check the status. Am I doing something wrong or doesn't it really support dynamic dns at all?

      Thanks
      John

      Re: Dynamic DNS

      Hi John, When specifying the host name, use the fully qualified name (e.g. myhost.dyndns.org) insstead of just the host name (e.g. myhost).

      Thanks - it seems I hadn't correctly set it up at the server!
