configuration for afraid-dyndns on Fedora and other similar distro.

First install afraid-dyndns with the command:

sudo yum install afraid-dyndns

Now open the configuration file /etc/afraid-dyndns.cfg and we need to change the following:

Notify = [email protected] # leave empty to suppress notifications
CacheFile = /var/cache/afraid-dyndns/IP
AccountHash = <value>

For the Account hash, head over to login and then click one of the XML or the ASCII links there. Once the page has loaded, look at the URL which is of form:<number>


The number above that you see in the actual URL is the account hash that you need to configure in the config file. Though it is very simple but could never get this correctly 🙂 until today.
