OpenDNS for dynamic ip addresses


Last week, when OpenDNS introduced OpenDNS Accounts, they added support for preferences for users with dynamic ip addresses.  This is accomplished by a dynamic dns client, that is configured with your account credentials.  When the client notices an ip address change, it will notify OpenDNS the your dns preferences will apply to the new ip address.


Now OpenDNS is looking for developers to create new dynamic dns clients that are compatible with their service.  There are two requirements:


  • SSL support for https updates

  • Allows the user to change the update url.


The other thing that I would love to see in this client is the ability to update multiple dynamic dns services.  I want to send updates to OpenDNS and DynDNS at the same time.
