I've registered my network label with OpenDNS.
Now I'm trying to understand what's my fqdn?
Is it <network name>.opendns.com?
I used to use dyndns.com for dynamic DNS service. Their instructions made it quite obvious for me what my fqdn was.
Basically it was, sign up for the service, pick a domain.tld from the list they provided, see if the hostname was available on that domain and then refer to that <hostname>.<domain>.<tld> when accessing my home service from the Internet.
With OpenDNS I'm guessing the network label is equivalent to the hostname. Is that correct?
And then what's the <domain>.<tld> to use with the label?
I've searched the OpenDNS site for a few days and haven't found anything that clearly answers these questions for me. What I can say is that ddclient is not working. My ddclient.conf looks like this...
## OpenDNS.com account-configuration
login=<my login id>
password='<my password, tried with and without single quotes>'
<my network label>
Note that I know ddclient is working. When I set up the ddclient.conf for use with dnsdynamic.com I'm able to ping my fqdn <hostname>.dnsdynamic.com and the IP is updated when my home network's external IP changes.
So, what's the fqdn to use with OpenDNS?
