Solved -- Errors with afraid-dyndns in Goddard (Fedora 13)

2010-05-06 334 words 2 mins read

Since I updated to the <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/fedora" title="Fedora" rel="homepage" href="">Fedora 13, I was getting error from the <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/dynamic_dns" title="Dynamic DNS" rel="wikipedia" href="">Dynamic DNS client for afraid. I was not getting enough time to fix this, so finally I decided to fix this in the night itself πŸ™‚

On running


I was getting the error:

Entity: line 100: <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/parsing" title="Parsing" rel="wikipedia" href="">parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: br line 99 and div

Entity: line 118: parser error : Entity &#8217;copy&#8217; not defined
Β© 2010 DomainTools, <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/limited_liability_company" title="Limited liability company" rel="wikipedia" href="">LLC All <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/intellectual_property" title="Intellectual property" rel="wikipedia" href="">rights reserved.
Entity: line 121: parser error : AttValue: &#8221; or &#8217; expected
/link/?id=4668&#8217;;} return(true);&#8221;><img src="/images/domaining-120x31.gif" border="^" alt="" /><img src="/images/domaining-120x31.gif" border="</p" alt="" />

So here is the solution :

On further investigation I found that the issue was not with the afraid server but with getting the external IP. So I decided to use my own site to get the IP. And changed the following in the afraid-dyndns file:

Comment out the following code:

#$xml = get(&#8221;;);
#die &#8221;Failed fetching <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/ip_address" title="IP address" rel="wikipedia" href="">IP address!&#8221; unless $xml;
#echo (&#8221;Got IP:&#8221;. $xml);

#$o = XMLin($xml);
#$extip = $o->{proxy_ip}; # external address

And add the following line just below the just commented lines:

$extip = get(&#8221;;);
$extip =~ s/\n//;

This change be sufficient to get you going again.. πŸ™‚<h6 class="zemanta-related-title">Related articles by Zemanta <ul class="zemanta-article-ul"> <li class="zemanta-article-ul-li"><a href="">unbound variable – bash completion not working and having issues with other stuff like command not found.
