The dynamic dns provider I'm using expires an account after 30 days of activity. My IP does not change that often, so I created a script to update the account daily, regardless of IP changes.
Fix: I have added a patch to the port that will install this script and shows a message on installation how to enable the script. The script is disabled by default.
Created using "diff -ruN ddclient.orig ddclient"
Patch attached with submission follows:
