Running Duiadns Client as a Windows Service
Many of you want to run a dynamic dns client on a windows machine. Duiadns gives you three options to do that:
a console client, a graphical client and a client that runs as a windows service as further described below in this blog post.
First, you need to download it and unpack the archive:
Go to download page and select duia.win.x86.64 client.
This duiadns client is both x86/x64 compatible so you don't have to worry about that.
The archive contains the installer and a readme.txt file. Click on duiadns-installer.exe, add your hostname and password and select if you want to
use duiadns client for both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses or just for IPv4/IPv6 only.
The default path is C:\Program Files\Duiadns\ and after installation you'll see 5 files in this directory:
- duia.cache - will save the current ipv4 / ipv6 addresses
- duia.cfg - will save the hostname & md5(password)
- duia.log - will save log information
- duiadns.exe - to run the program
- uninstall.exe - to uninstall the program
At this point, your duiadns client is already running as a windows service. You don't have to use a scheduler or anything else,
the updater will check for new IPv4/IPv6 address every 60 seconds and send a DNS update if the ip address has changed.
