Hi Jon, This is my development box running testing, I was a bit surprised myself though that Pakfire upgraded to CU170 as only 169 was shown to be available when I upgraded.
Not a lot to see in the logs. /var/log/messages has:
Aug 13 21:55:00 ipfire-dev2 fcron: Job ‘[ -f “/var/ipfire/red/active” ] && /usr/bin/ddns update-all’ started for user root (pid 5153)
Aug 13 21:55:00 ipfire-dev2 fcron: Job ‘[ -f “/var/ipfire/red/active” ] && /usr/bin/ddns update-all’ completed
every 5 minutes and presumably coming from the fcron entry.
Do you have multiple DDNS services.
Are they all disabled.
Are they Disabled?
Are there none on your Current list.
Did you hit save button?
Pehaps a WUI button function problem
Will Disable mine and test.
I think it is much safer, just to start the ddns updater every 5 minutes independant from the enabling/disabling.
The updater itself only sends requests for enabled providers.
This is also deductible from the fact, that the DDNS page doesn’t have a global enable/disable button.
Any manipulation of the fcron tabs bears some possibility for errors.
EDIT: I just tried on my system.
With all providers disabled /usr/bin/ddns update-all --force doesn’t log any activity, so ddns is effectively inactive.
Enabling one provider produces only the log entry for this provider.
Rob, do you mean the ‘Enabled’ checkbox in the ‘Add a host’ section?
This the default value for a new host.
The enabled/disabled check boxes for the defined hosts are in the next section ‘Current hosts’.
Thank you for the clarification Bernhard. Maybe I have misunderstood the function of the enable check box which I thought was to Enable/Disable DDNS functionality. Perhaps the GUI could be clearer and have a Global Enable setting similar to many of the other cgi pages.
Regarding the fcron entries, I have a few of my own programs running from fcron and I like to keep an eye on them. Unfortunately after the upgrade to CU170 I’ll have to add them back.
