DDNS from KiwiSDRdyndns.com (dyn.com) looks to be a managed DNS subscription service with no free dynamic DNS client.So it looks like integrating a DDNS client into the Kiwi is the solution in this case. I will try and get that working. I might have to pick one provider (noip.com) and limit the configuration support to them for now. As it so often turns out you spend MUCH more time coding the user interface than the actual functionality of whatever it is you're trying to implement.
DDNS from KiwiSDRIf you're going to the trouble of using an R-pi to run a Linux command-line based DDNS client you could just consider logging onto the Kiwi Beagle and installing one there. That's essentially what I'm going to get the Kiwi software distribution to do. Just like it automatically installs things like fftw, avahi-autoipd and miniupnpc. Here's what I did to search for DDNS clients supported by Debian on the Beagle:
root@kiwi:~# pks dyndns
ddclient - address updating utility for dynamic DNS services
dyndns - dynamic DNS (DDNS) update client implemented in Perl
ez-ipupdate - client for most dynamic DNS services
ipcheck - Dyndns.org client to register your dynamic IP address
tinydyndns - pop-before-dyndns service using djbdns
root@kiwi:~# al pks
alias pks='echo available pkgs:; apt-cache search'So the "pks" command is a Kiwi shell alias for the apt command needed to search all the available packages. I was looking at using the ez-ipupdate client. To install it so you can look at its man page just do "pki ez-ipupdate" (pki is an alias for "apt-get -y install"). See all the pk aliases by typing "pk".Note that I have not actually tried using this DDNS client yet (with, for example, noip.com)
Alternative Kiwi map with status and day/night overlayNew from pryiom.org is rx.linkfanel.net, an alternative to sdr.hu/map that features color coded Kiwi status and a day/night map overlay.Thanks Pierre!
